Sky Bet Championship side Birmingham City have had a €7m bid accepted for Dinamo Zagreb midfielder Ivan Sunjic, reports from Croatian news outlet Vecernji List claim.
It seems as if another midfielder could be on the way to St. Andrew’s though, with reports from Croatia claiming that Dinamo Zagreb midfielder Sunjic is edging closer to completing a move to St. Andrew’s, with Blues reportedly having a €7m bid accepted.
Sunjic stood out for Croatia in the Under-21 European Championships earlier on this summer, but it is now claimed that he is set to fly to England to undergo contract talks with Blues.
€7m would be a club-record fee for Blues if true, and would surpass the reported £6m they paid for playmaker Jota two years ago. The report also claims that Croatian champions Zagreb would be entitled to a 30% sell-on clause if Blues were to sell him on in the future.
Birmingham kick off their brand new season with a trip to Brentford in less than two weeks.
It would be a real statement of intent by Birmingham if they were to land Sunjic, and if the reports are true.
He looks to be a very talented player, and is clearly very highly regarded if the likes of Leeds and Milan have been linked with his signature.
Birmingham already have plenty of talented options in the middle of the park, however Sunjic would bring someone different, a sense of youth and tenaciousness.
€7m is a lot to pay given Birmingham’s precarious financial position, though.
