Lothar Matthäus on Sky Germany: Arsenal have signed Josip Drmic from Nurnberg

Jan Aage Fjortoft has often been good news for some Arsenal transfer news gossip – predicting the Mesut Ozil transfer before anyone else and also having regular updates on Julian Draxler in the January window.

Fjortoft, the former Swindon and Middlesbrough striker, is currently a Sky Germany pundit and was also just appointed assistant manager of the Norway national team.

In short, Fjortoft is a very good and trusted source.

On Saturday, Fjortoft’s Sky Germany colleague, the great Lothar Matthäus announced live on television that Arsenal have made a new signing: Nurnberg striker Josip Drmic.

And, in truth, this looks like a typical Arsene Wenger signing.

Josip Drmic is a 21-year-old striker who has been banging in the goals for Nurnberg this season – 15 in 26 matches so far this season.

This is Drmic’s first season in the Bundesliga having joined from FC Zurich in the summer…

We suspect, despite the obvious talent shown by Drmic in his young career so far, if Lothar Matthäus is right, Arsenal fans will not be happy – Gooners want big name players to fill in up front or take over from Olivier Giroud.
