According to reports on tuttomercatoweb.com the Giallorossi are confident they’ve fought off Arsenal for Jedvaj’s signature and have agreed a reported fee of €5 million with Zagreb.
Jedvaj will compete with the likes of Marquinhos, Leandro Castán and Nicolás Burdisso for a starting berth in Rudi Garcia’s team.
Jedvaj is a highly promising Croatian central defender, who made his debut for Zagreb in the league fixture against NK Osijek earlier this year; going on to make 13 appearances for the Croat club to date.
However, contrary reports in the Sun, state that Arsenal could hijack the transfer by offering Zagreb a higher fee in the region of €7 million.
Whether Jedvaj would prefer a move to London where he could struggle to break into the Arsenal first-team remains unclear.
