Sebastian Caceres has admitted that he is flattered about the speculation linking him with a possible transfer to Arsenal.

The 18-year-old centre-half has been playing first-team football for Liverpool FC in Montevideo and is thought to be attracting interest from a host of Premier League clubs.

Arsenal are reported to be among the teams keeping tabs on the Uruguayan defender and following his progress.

And the player himself has admitted that he is flattered to hear that he has been linked with a possible move to Arsenal in the future.

Caceres is quoted as saying by The Sun: “This was flattering to hear this as they are a top team. I don’t know much about their new manager but I watch Arsenal a lot as I like the style of football.

“To play in the Premier League would be a dream for me as my ambitions are firstly to play in Europa and then play a World Cup with the Uruguay first team.”

Arsenal are likely to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Unai Emery looks to assemble a team capable of challenging for the Premier League title next season.

The Gunners will have to make do without Champions League football next season after they ended up in sixth place in the Premier League table and without a trophy in Arsene Wenger’s final campaign in charge at The Emirates.

The north London side will be aiming to try and break back into the top four spots next season at the very least.
