Arsenal are again being linked with a move for Udinese midfielder Kojo Asamoah.

The player's agent has confirmed that Arsene Wenger is considering a move for the player, but denied that Arsenal have reached advanced stages in their negotiations for the player.

"He is not close to a deal. He has four years left on his contract with Udinese. There is interest fromArsenal, but that is all, we will see,” the agent told

A Ghanaian international who has impressed during his time in Italy, Asamoah joined the Zebrette on loan from Swiss club Bellinzona. He made his debut for the club in January 2009.

The Stadio Friuli side then went on to pay 800,000 Euros to secure Asamoah's services permanently in summer 2009, but the Gunners would have to fork out much more than that to land the starlet.

Chelsea are also thought to be monitoring the 21-year-old, and Frenchman Wenger could face a transfer fight with the Stamford Bridge club if he wants to secure the services of this young talent.

"I am an Udinese player. My ambition is to be in the team, week in, week out. To be linked to Arsenal and Chelsea is a good thing but I’ve never been approached," Asamoah previously told the Ghanaian FA website.

The north London club have been linked with a string of players after news broke last month that Wenger would have money to spend in the summer transfer window, and Asamoah is the latest in a potential line of June signings at the Emirates.
