Blues have lodged a bid for Croatia U21 captain Ivan Sunjic from Dinamo Zagreb.
Leeds United are also understood to be in the race to sign the highly rated holding midfielder, with Blues already making an offer of £3.5million, according to the Daily Mail.
Sunjic, who was in the side who drew 3-3 with England last month, has been heavily linked with Marcelo Bielsa’s side with news Kalvin Phillips is expected to join Aston Villa.
In May 2017, Sunjic was called to the senior international team for a friendly match against Mexico, where they won 2-1.
As you can see from the video below, Sunjic likes to play from the back and can certainly pick out a perfected lofted pass.
Again, with the Pablo Mari link, this is another ambitious target, but it’s good to see Blues linked with these type of players nonetheless.
