Arsenal have joined the race to sign midfielder Florian Grelic from Hoffenheim as they look to bolster their midfield for next season.
The 26-year-old is a free agent in the summer and has already informed Hoffenheim that he will not renew and is now looking for the best move for his career.
Arsenal is said to be one of the interested clubs along with Milan, according to TodovichagesHowever, more clubs should be expected to join the race given the absence of transfer fees.
Grealish is a midfielder who has played at Hoffenheim since 2017 after joining from Werder Bremen and played a total of 178 matches throughout his Bundesliga career.
The Austrian is a midfielder who holds the ball or from one box to the next, but can also play as a deep playmaker. The 26-year-old has also held the position of centre-back, due to his 6-foot-1 frame and ball-playing abilities.
With Mohamed Elneny’s contract expiring this summer, the Austrian could be his replacement, as Arsenal need more options in midfield.
It would be a risk-free move for Arsenal if they move to the Austrian, as the 26-year-old is free and has shown his ability to rise to another level in his career.
The Gunners lack bodies in two midfield positions and have only relied on Albert Sambi Lukunga to hold back when no Granit Xhaka or Thomas Partey are available.
Therefore, it is likely that we will see Florian Grelic in a red and white shirt next season.
