Bosnian starlet Edin Visca claims Arsenal have expressed an interest in his services, but he is refusing to read too much into the reports.

According to skysports.com, the 21-year-old winger is flattered to be linked with such a prestigious club, and having spent just six months with Turkish club Istanbul BB, Visca could be on the move again in January.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is believed to be monitoring the player's progress with a view to bringing him to the Emirates Stadium at the end of the 2011-12 campaign.

Arsenal are renowned for bringing in bright young talent and Wenger has a reputation for nurturing young stars and turning them into world-class players.

Visca admits he would find it difficult to snub a switch to the Barclays Premier League, but for now remains fully focused on continuing his development in Istanbul.

"I am very proud that such a big club is interested in me," he told KiP. "Who wouldn't be happy about that?

"But the truth is, right now I am an Istanbul BB player and that means I cannot think too much about the Gunners.

"Until something concrete happens, I will only think about Istanbul BB as I want to play in Turkey and be as good as I can.

"But, yes, I am happy and proud that such a big club wants me."
