Bruce hopes to sign Swedish youngster Mirosavic
Sunderland are hopeful of signing Swedish youngster Robert Mirosavic, who has returned to the north-east for the second time for talks with the club.
The Helsingborg forward made a good impression on the Black Cats' boss Steve Bruce after training with the club recently. Bruce now hopes he can ward off other clubs, including Arsenal, as he strives to get Mirosavic to sign a deal.
The starlet can play up front or out wide, impressing scouts from Barcelona, Real Madrid and Chelsea by scoring 49 goals in 45 games for Helsingborg's youth team in the 2010-11 season.
The Gunners were rumoured to be interested in signing him in February but nothing materialised and Bruce is looking to capitalise.
Mirosavic could link up at the club with his compatriot Sebastien Larsson, who has impressed for Sunderland this season.
