It is being reported in the Croatian press that Arsenal youngster Robbie Burton is set to sign for Dinamo Zagreb.
The 20 year old midfielder was part of the club’s summer tour to the US in 2019, playing well in some of the games, but never made the step up to first team action during the 2019-20 season.
He was on the bench for the Carabao Cup win over Nottingham Forest in September, but remained there as the Gunners ran out 5-1 winners.
With the likes of Granit Xhaka, Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi, Joe Willock and Dani Ceballos ahead of him in the pecking order, it was always going to be difficult for him to make the breakthrough at senior level.
The transfer is a permanent one, not a loan, and it’s an interesting move for a young
English Welsh player to make at this point of his career.
Good luck to him, let’s hope that is rewarded, and he can build his career from here.
