Transfer: Arsenal make deadline-day swoop for Croatia World Cup star

Arsenal are reportedly planning to make a last-minute attempt to sign Croatian defender, Domagoj Vida before the transfer window closes tonight (Thursday).

Vida impressed with his performances at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia this summer, helping his nation through to the final, where they were defeated 4-2 by France.

The likes of Liverpool, Everton and Wolverhampton Wanderers have since been linked with a move for the 29-year-old, while his club Besiktas are believed to be willing to let him go for a fee of around £22million.

According to football.london, Arsenal have held late talks with the Turkish giants about a deadline-day deal and have agreed to meet the valuation of the centre-back.

The report also claimed that Besiktas president, Fikret Orman is in London today in order to get the deal done around 5pm in the evening.

Vida joined Besiktas in January this year, moving from Ukrainian club, Dynamo Kiev on a free transfer.
