Many top Premier League clubs are on high alert as Eintracht Frankfurt forward, Ante Rebic has expressed his desire to ply his trade in Premier League in near future. Arsenal is one of those teams and keeping him on their radar as the player is doing really well and seemed to have taken his World Cup form to his club in Bundesliga.
As reported by the Mirror, when asked about Premier League, Rebic said,
“I can’t deny many clubs, some from England, expressed an interest. The Premier League is attractive and it would suit my style. I’d like to experience it.”
Any club that wish to sign Ante Rebic needs to fork out a fee in the region of £35 million. It should come as a no brainer considering the fact that the forward has been in red hot form lately. The world witnessed the attacking prowess of Rebic when he managed to guide his Croatian national team to World Cup finals last summer.
And continuing this prolific form, Rebic has already found back of the net 7 times along with 3 assists in just 14 appearances for his club this season. This figures sounds even more impressive after considering the fact that Rebic is made to start the games out-wide from the centre although being a proper striker.

Arsenal are on the verge of signing Denis Suarez on loan from Barcelona as they find themselves short in the winger department and with Rebic proven to be clinical even when playing out wide, one can agree that he can prove to be a good deal.
Along with that, the Croatian International is also known for his physicality which compliments well with the Premier League style of play and will provide a great cover to both Lacazette and Aubameyang in the long run.
Rebic would be a fine signing for Arsenal as the player has proved time and again that he has what it takes to play at the highest level. When he scored twice in Cup finals against Bavarian giants, Bayern Munich and won German Cup for his club last season, he displayed that he can step up and perform when it matters the most.

He will be a good fit for Emery’s vision of offensive football and can complement the fluidity of Lacazette and Aubameyang up front. However, Arsenal will have to format a deal fast if they wish to sign him as many clubs are in contention to secure his services.
