Arsenal transfers: Odil Ahmedov confirms Gunners interest
Arsenal transfers: Odil Ahmedov claims that Gunners scouts have watched the Anzhi Makhachkala midfielder in action all season
Odil Ahmedov has claimed that Arsenal scouts have watched the Anzhi Makhachkala midfielder in action throughout the season.
The Uzbekistan international has been linked with a move away from Russia in recent months, with Italian sides Juventus and Genoa both reportedly interested in the 25-year-old.
And Ahmedov did little to quell the speculation about his future by admitting his desire to play in the Premier League and declaring that he could be a “huge success” should he seal a move to The Emirates.
“I’m happy at Anzhi but I’d like to try England, Spain or Italy,” Ahmedov told Izvestia.
“It is true I have interest from Arsenal though – their scouts have watched me in every match this season.
“If I move there, I could be a huge success but there is no bid yet.”
