Arsenal send scouts to watch Croatian star Lovro Majer dubbed the 'new Luka Modric'

Published on: 25 September 2022

Arsenal are keeping an eye on highly-rated Rennes midfielder Lovro Majer ahead of a potential future transfer.

Gunners' scouts were in attendance as the 24-year-old came off the bench to score the winner for Croatia against Denmark, in their 2-1 Nations League win on Thursday afternoon.

Majer's impressive displays in recent months have seen him likened with his national team-mate Luka Modric and the midfielder has now caught the attention of a number of top clubs across Europe.

According to the Sun, this is the second occasion that Arsenal scouts have been present to watch Majer play as they step-up their interest in the midfielder.

The 24-year-old is entering his second season at Rennes having moved to the Ligue 1 side from Dinamo Zagreb in 2021.

Operating from the heart of midfield, Majer has become an integral part of a Rennes side that finished fourth in the league last season and currently sit eighth this year.

He registered six goals and eight assists in his debut season in France and has become a regular feature in the Croatia national squad this year.

He's already picked up three goals in his nine international appearances, all of which have come this calendar year.

Arsenal are likely to be looking for midfield reinforcements in either January or next summer, having struggled with injuries in that position this year.

Midfield general Thomas Partey has had a string of problems this season which has left Mikel Arteta's side short on quality in that position.

Meanwhile, the Gunners have also been linked with a double move for Juventus duo Dusan Vlahovic and 19-year-old midfielder Fabio Miretti in the upcoming months.
