Montpellier defender Emir Spahic target for Arsenal

Montpellier defender Emir Spahic is a target for Arsenal.

The News of the World says Spahic caught the eye as captain of the Bosnia team which made it all the way to the World Cup play-offs before losing narrowly to Portugal.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is thought to prefer Germany star Per Mertesacker but is looking at alternatives if a deal cannot be struck with Werder Bremen to sign the 25-year-old.

Spahic is older, at almost 30, but would provide cover elsewhere in Arsenal's defence.
