Aleksander Dragovic is wanted by every top Premier League club.

So the rumour mill goes.

You’d think, then, given that is the case, that one of them might have got in touch to find out if the Austrian player fancies a move to the league he’s already said he’d, well, quite fancy.

 “I feel very, very good at [Dynamo] Kiev,” he told the press. “You need to have the feeling that they really want you. That’s the most important thing.

“Facts matter to me, and as long as there is nothing ready to sign on the table, any thoughts about it are pointless.”

Reading his statement and actually paying attention to it, you can see that there is the possibility that a club has been in touch but they just haven’t made an offer yet.

So are Arsenal interested in the defender who admits to buying perfume as a hobby?

It’s hard to tell.

Bringing in Gabriel in January means the need for a centreback is not as urgent as it was just a few months ago but we all know that Per Mertesacker’s days as first choice are numbered, no matter how much we all love the BFG.

It would make sense that Arsenal are looking to add to their ranks and if Dragovic is someone on their radar, then the good news is that he is open to a move.

“No, seriously, I know which lads are playing centre-back for the top clubs and how the competition [for places] would look but, before I study the transfer market, I’d rather buy new perfume.”

Always nice to get your priorities straight.
