Italian source CalcioMercato Arsenal have set their sights on Udinese right-back Dusan Basta.

There has been growing speculation as to the future of Gunners full-back Bacary Sagna, who made some recent comments that will not have best pleased Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal board, and this may well have led to the possibility of bringing in a replacement for the 29 year old defender.

Should Arsenal elect to sell the former Auxerre man or indeed if Sagna pushed for an exit then Wenger may feel that despite the good progress shown by youngster Carl Jenkinson there would be the need for alternative possibilities for the right-back slot.

Dusan Basta is perhaps not a household name but last term the Serbian international made a real impact at Udinese, helping Francesco Guidolin’s side to a third place finish in Serie A. Arsene Wenger may well have spent relatively big to bring in three big-name signings over the summer but the Frenchman is better known for scouting lesser known talents and making the most of potential he sees in them, Basta may be just such a player.
