Basel's Dragovic claims frenzied interest from Arsenal, Inter etc.

FC Basel young gun Aleksandar Dragovic has claimed that a number of clubs are interested in his services.

The 21-year old Austrian defender has been linked with the likes of Arsenal, Inter Milan, Borussia Dortmund and Marseille recently and suggests that there are about three more clubs who want him although he is thinking about staying with the Swiss champions.

"On the names of the clubs there is some truth. With the exception of Barcelona," Dragovic told Kurier.

"There are seven teams interested, two of which are from Russia. They would be very financially lucrative, but I am not looking for the most money."

He added: "My contract runs until 2015, so if a club wants me, they'll have to put a bit of money on the table.

"Also I feel very comfortable here and in 18 months here I have developed twice as much as I could have done in Austria.

"The club must at least be represented in the Europa League. For with Basel I have the chance to play in the Champions League."
