2014 Word Cup - Day One: Watch Croatian Striker Chelsea & Arsenal Want Play Tonight*

Strikers that score goals aren’t actually that easy to come by at the highest tiers of the game, so you’ll have a lot of clubs interested in Croatian star Mario Mandžukić, who has confirmed he’ll be leaving Bayern München this summer.

Bayern would usually be upset about losing a player of such a calibre, but they do have Robert Lewandowski signed already, so there won’t be too many tears being shed.

48 goals in 88 games is what will be attracting clubs to the big forward, but his ability off the ball and tracking back is also a massive bonus, and sure to alert more than one Premier League side this summer.

We know Chelsea need strikers, and that Diego Costa alone might not be enough, but Arsenal have also been linked, with their forward line equally as weak.

You don't have to take our word for it you'll be able to see him plenty in the next few weeks (at least TWO times probably) although - here comes the asterisk - he's suspended for tonight's game. Sorry about that.
