Arsenal, Tottenham, and Chelsea face Italian competition for €20 million youngster

According to the latest transfer rumours Arsenal are being linked with a move for 20-year-old Dinamo Zagreb defender Filip Benkovic.

Tottenham and Chelsea are also interested in the youngster and an interesting battle is set to commence for the €20 million-rated centre back. In addition to the Premier League trio, Inter Milan are also monitoring him.

As well as being an exciting defender Benkovic also has an eye for goal having scored three times already this season.

Inter Milan must be considered the favourites at this stage as they are the only side that can probably guarantee him first team football on a regular basis, Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal cannot do that, not with the squads they already have.

Benkovic is clearly one for the future were the Premier League clubs are concerned, whereas Inter sees him as a player for now.

That said, the lure of the Premier League and the wages that come with it may prove too irresistible for the 20-year-old. © 2017 Frontier Theme
