Emirates boss wants AIK Solna star.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is lining up £3.5million-rated AIK Solna defender Alexander Milosevic as a replacement for Gael Clichy.
The 19-year-old has been watched by Gunners scouts last weekend but face competition from Liverpool and Sunderland for his signature.
The move comes as Wenger prepares for life after Clichy, who looks destined to leave North London this summer.
The 25-year-old has only 12 months left on his current deal and is unlikely to sign a new contract as he goes in search of silverware.
The Frenchman is not against signing a new deal with the Gunners as he is settled in England but wants guarantees of marquee signings.
Liverpool are reportedly using director of football Damien Comolli’s links with the player to sign him but Wenger is adamant he must move abroad.
This has forced the Arsenal boss to move for left-back Milosevic but Solna’s director of football, Jens Anderson, claims many Premier League clubs are after him.
“Several clubs from England are following him,” Jens Anderson said.
