Arsenal are in contract talks with Atletico Madrid star Mario Mandzukic, according to inside sources.
Arsenal are believed to have had their €18 million bid accepted for the Atletico striker.
The news has come as a shock to many in the football world, with England legend Gary Lineker saying on Twitter that he thought Mandzukic would stay at the Vicente Calderon Stadium for 'some time to come'.
'I think the move is unwise', said Lineker. 'He should stay with Atletico Madrid for another few seasons at least.'
