Arsenal transfers: Fabian Schar hands Gunners a big boost
The Basel defender would be keen on a transfer away from the Swiss club
Fabian Schar has handed Arsenal a boost in their reported pursuit of the defender by revealing that he feels ready for a transfer abroad.
The Switzerland defender has been linked with a move to the Premier League in recent seasons, with Emirates Stadium touted as the most likely destination for the 22-year-old.
My dream remains to have an experience abroad
Now, Schar has opened the door to a potential move away from Basel but admitting that he wants to play in one of Europe’s top leagues.
“Basel are open to negotiations, but at this moment I have decided that I want to concentrate on my performances,” Schar told Blick.
“I went through a difficult period and it wasn’t the right time to discuss my renewal. I don’t want to be worrying about that now.
“My dream remains to have an experience abroad. I’ve always said that if the opportunity presented itself, I would take it, obviously in agreement with Basel.
“I need a team with important prospects. I’d like the Bundesliga, Premier League or top Italian clubs like Inter, Milan and Juventus. I couldn’t say no.
“I want to hear all my options and consider them carefully. There was some contact in the summer, but nothing serious.”
