Inter may swoop for Arsenal target

Yasuyuki Nagatsuka

Inter have recently been re-linked to young Croatian starlet Nikola Vlasic, according to reports from The Daily Express, after failing to sign the player during the last January transfer window.

The 18-year-old Hajduk Split midfielder has also drawn interest from Premier League side Arsenal, and, according to reports, the two sides may enter into a bidding war to sign the player this winter.

Vlasic has been compared to fellow Luka Modric in terms of his poise and calmness on the ball. It's worth noting that he made The Guardian's list of "40 of the best young talents in world football" back in 2014 at the tender age of 17.

If, like most people, you haven't watched much Croatian soccer lately - don't worry! Here's a video compilation of some of Nikola Vlasic's goals, assists, and his admittedly cool and calm ball-handling skills.

It's rather lengthy, but it's perfect for those of you who'd like to get to know someone Inter have merely been *rumored* to be pursuing. Enjoy!
