Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is reportedly considering a £6m summer move for FC Basel defender Aleksandar Dragovic, according to the Metro.
Wenger is believed to have held a long-standing interest in the Austrian centre-half, who featured in his side’s 2-2 Europa League draw at Spurs on Thursday, and is expected to launch a move for Dragovic in the summer.
The Frenchman has had scout Steve Rowley watch Dragovic in action, according to the Metro, and is ready to make a move at the end of the campaign as he seeks to bolster his defensive options in the close season.
It has been suggested that Swiss side Basel will listen to offers in the region of £6million for the 22-year-old Austria international but Arsenal may face competition for his signature.
Premier League rivals Everton, Liverpool and Manchester City have all been credited with an interest but it remains to be seen whether or not they will make a move when the transfer window re-opens.
