Arsenal interested in signing €20m-rated Ligue 1 playmaker


Some of the most prominent European teams are keen on signing Lovro Majer. Arsenal, Barcelona, and Real Madrid are among the clubs showing interest in the Stade Rennais playmaker, with the footballer quickly becoming a hot property in the market.

Croatia international was a journeyman during his formative years, representing half a dozen teams in his youth career before graduating from the Lokomotiva Zagreb academy. Majer went from strength to strength during his three-year stint with Dinamo Zagreb before taking his career to the next level at Stade Rennais.

Lovro has taken no time to establish himself as one of the best attackers in Ligue 1. And after an impressive 2021/22 season, Majer has begun the new campaign strongly, chipping in with a goal and two assists in eight games. Lovro’s displays have not gone unnoticed either, with Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Arsenal among his prospective suitors.

As for Arsenal, the London club signed Fabio Vieira in the summer transfer window as a possible long-term solution in midfield. And with Odegaard now the Gunners captain, it is unclear how the Croatian playmaker might fit in the Spanish manager’s setup.

But the Gunners might still pursue the 24-year-old playmaker over a potential move soon. The Croatian will be one of the most highly sought-after footballers in the market in the coming transfer windows, and it will be interesting to see where his career takes him next.
