Reports: Sunderland Table 'Written Offer' For Croatian

Ivan Strinic: Sunderland bound? (Photo by Claudio Villa/Getty Images)

All summer we have done our best to keep you up-to-date with not only what the domestic press are reporting with regards Sunderland, but much further afield too.

So it was with a great deal of interest that we noted a story in the Croatian press linking Martin O'Neill with a move for Croatia's Euro 2012 left back Ivan Strinic.

The report claims that Sunderland have submitted a 'written offer' to his Ukrainian Club Dnipro for the full back amounting to around €6m-7m (around £5m) and, although a slight increase on that figure may be required to get it over the line, the player himself is extremely keen on the move and a deal looks 'realistic'.

At 25-years-old, 6'1", and possessing quality delivery into the box from deep positions, Strinic would certainly fit the bill as someone who could slot into a typical O'Neill side and finally provide some long-term stability to the left back position.

It can be difficult to assess these stories, and we urge you all to take them with a pinch of salt as we simply can't vouch for their credibility, but the source, Slobodna Dalmacija, is a major publication in Croatia belonging to a large newsgroup.

It is another name to throw into the fray, if nothing else, and an interesting one at that.
