Nuremburg striker Josip Drmic will join Arsenal in the summer, according to German football legend Lothar Matthaus
It is the second time that Matthaus, who made 150 appearances for Germany during his playing career and now works as a television pundit, has stated that Drmic is Arsenal bound.
The 53-year-old previously claimed Drmic’s wife was already looking at houses in London, and although he admits he was mistaken in saying the player is married, he is adamant that the move is still on
He told Blick: “Although now Dortmund, Gladbach and Leverkusen also have interest in him. I’m saying: Josip Drmic will move to Arsenal.”
He added: “I made a mistake. I said his wife was already looking at apartments. The fact is that this is his girlfriend. Drmic has a girlfriend of nine months. She lived five or six months with him in Nuremberg.
“Look, if a journalist hears something, he researches and writes about it. I’m kind of a journalist at Sky and have heard the rumour of a move to Arsenal.
“I then found out that this is true and he’s going there. So the research is clear.”
