    Dinamo reject Arsenal bid

    Dinamo Zagreb claim they have rejected an offer from Arsenal for prized assets Sime Vrsaljko and Mateo Kovacic.

    Full-back Vrsaljko, 18, is considered one of the best defensive prospects in European football and has most of the Premier League and Europe's elite chasing him.

    16-year-old Kovacic is a highly-rated midfielder, and Dinamo have revealed that Arsenal sent a delegation to Croatia to try and do a deal for the pair earlier this month.

    But club vice-president Zdravko Mamic has stated that he has shunned a €20million (£16.9million) offer from Arsenal.

    "Here were people from Arsenal and they were ready to pay 20 million Euros for Vrsaljko and Kovacic.

    "But they are to stay in Dinamo, Arsenal just wanted to buy them for the future. But my answer was sharp, I said 'no' in one second."

    Mamic admits he is gambling on the pair becoming even more valuable in the future.

    "While I have space and no problems at our bank account I can take a risk," he continued.

    "Yes, I know I'm playing with luck but so far I am winning. I believe it will be the same in the future."
