Wenger wanted Modric at Arsenal

Arsene Wenger was reportedly chasing Croatian star Luka Modric before he signed for North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur, according to eatsleepsport.

We played against Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League [in August 2006] and he played in the same team as Eduardo against us” said the French manager. “At the time we had [Cesc] Fabregas, not a bad player. But we were interested in Modric.

Juande Ramos then brought the playmaker to White Hart Lane for a fee of £16.5m and he has since gone on to prove himself a very capable Premier League player. The 26-year-old is attracting more recent interest from Chelsea and Manchester United.
