Arsenal are planning an £8 million bid for Dinamo Zagreb star Luka Modric.

The Daily Mail says Modric's advisers spent two days in England earlier this week speaking to Premier League clubs, including the Gunners.

The 21-year-old has told Dinamo officials that he would rather stay in Zagreb for now while they are still in the Champions League, but he is a close friend and former team-mate of Eduardo Da Silva, who joined Arsenal from Dinamo last month.

He fits the bill perfectly for manager Arsene Wenger, who claims he is "not sleeping" as he seeks to refurbish his squad before the end of the transfer window.

As a playmaker who can play centrally or on the left flank, Modric would help fill the hole in Wenger's squad in the wide positions following the summer departures of Freddie Ljungberg and Jose Reyes.
