21 year-old Nuremberg and Swiss International striker Josip Drmic is wanted by both Newcastle United and Arsenal in the summer, according to the Mirror.
Josip Drmic – 21 year-old Nuremberg striker
Both Newcastle and Arsenal will be anxious to add some strikers to their squads this summer, with Newcastle likely to lose at least three strikers this summer, and Arsenal need somebody to take the load off French International striker Olivier Giroud up front.
The Mirror is reporting that Everton and West Ham are also tracking the 21 year-old fast striker, who has played for all the Swiss Youth sides and 5 times with 2 goals for the full Swiss side.
Drmic started his career at FC Zürich and moved to Nuremberg on a four year contract only last summer, and he is said to have a buyout clause of £4.5M in his contract at the Bundesliga club.
In 34 games for Nuremberg this season he has 19 goals and 3 assists.
If Arsenal are serious about wanting the striker, that will put them at the top of the queue for the 6′ tall striker, although Arsenal have many different striker options this summer, including buying Newcastle on-loan striker Loic Remy from QPR.
Drmic has speed and movement up front and he seems to be a good finisher – and that’s something Newcastle have been woefully short of this season, at least when Loic Remy has not been in the side.
For £4.5M the striker would seem to offer Newcastle a good deal – if we can get him.
