Bosnian midfielder Edin Visca has revealed that Arsenal have been monitoring his progress for some time.
The 23-year-old currently plies his trade in the second tier of Turkish football with Istanbul Buyuksehir Belediyespor, but hasn’t escaped Arsene Wenger’s thorough scouting network.
Despite his obscure location in terms of club football, Visca has also earned recognition on the international stage, winning six caps at a senior level for his home nation.
The wide-man says that Arsenal are keeping an eye on his progress and that he would consider a move after the World Cup – which he hopes to take part in next year:
“Arsene Wenger has sent scouts to observe my games, this has motivated me and helped me get into the [Bosnian] national team.” He is quoted by The Express.
“I am not thinking about transfers right now all I am focusing on is the World Cup, let’s see what happens after.”
VIsca has been impressive for Istanbul BB for some time, netting a respectable 12 goals in 77 appearances since 2011.
Arsenal are also keen on his international team-mate Edin Dzeko, but may struggle to convince Manchester City to sell in January due to the teams’ respective title ambitions.
Can a Turkish second division player be a good enough for Arsenal?
