Germany football legend Lothar Matthaus claims that Arsenal have all but signed Nuremburg striker Josip Drmic.

Germany football legend Lothar Matthaus has claimed that Arsenal have all but signed Nuremberg striker Josip Drmic.

The 21-year-old's stock has risen since joining the Bundesliga outfit last summer after scoring 15 times in his first 26 games for the club.

Speaking on German television as a pundit, Matthaus claimed that the marksman's wife has already begun house-hunting in London ahead of the prospective move to the Gunners.

"Arsenal are believed to be interested in Drmic," he told Sky Germany. "I know for a fact that his wife is looking for a flat in London.

"I assume that Drmic will finish the season with Nuremburg hopefully successful and Nuremburg will sell him afterwards with a good profit - in this case to Arsenal."

Drmic scored in Nuremburg's 3-2 defeat to Freiburg this afternoon.
