Marcelo Brozovic's agent has admitted that the Dinamo Zagreb star would be keen on a move to Arsenal.

The Gunners are believed to be closing in on a move for Brozovic, who has been a long-term target for boss Arsene Wenger.

The club have been locked in talks with Dinamo over the 22-year-old since October, with the north Londoners understood to have had their first bid for the Croatia international rejected.

However, talks are ongoing between all parties and reports have suggested that a deal in the region of £6 million is close to being agreed.

Dinamo, who signed Brozovic from Lokomotiva in 2012, are resigned to the playmaker moving on to a bigger league with clubs across Europe - including Napoli, AC Milan and Valencia - also chasing his signature.

Brozovic's representative, Miroslav Bicanic, has insisted a number of clubs are interested in the midfielder, but has revealed that his client would be keen to move to the Premier League.

"We are talking to several clubs, although there is nothing concrete at this moment," Bicanic told Goal.

"We know of Arsenal's interest, but there is nothing agreed. At this moment Marcelo is with Dinamo and everything depends on Dinamo.

"They have to agree a price with a club and then we can hold talks.

"Of course Marcelo would be interested in playing in the Premier League with a club such as Arsenal.

"We hope he can change clubs and come to England as it is one of the best leagues in the world, but the decision depends on Dinamo."
