Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is chasing FC Basle defender Aleksandar Dragovic.

The 21 year-old Austria international has attracted interest from Inter Milan and Barcelona, however sources have told that Arsenal are favourites for the youngster.

Wenger has been shopping in the Swiss transfer market long-term and is well aware of Dragovic's qualities.

Basle rate the centre-half at £5 million, though hope that price will rise by encouraging an auction for his transfer.
