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.”
