The defender’s agent has recently confirmed that Arsenal are interested in signing the 21-year old.”He is happy at Basle, where there is a great atmosphere within the club,’ said representative Dimitrios Papadopoulos.”Arsenal? I can confirm we have had contact with English clubs who want to sign him.

“There is also interest from Italian and German clubs, but we have more contact from England.”
