Arsenal have made a move for Uzbekistan captain Odil Ahmedov, it has been claimed.

According to the Daily Mail, the north London club have been monitoring the 23-year-old midfielder, while the president of Uzbekistan Football Federation alleges the Gunners have submitted an offer.

When asked about the interest of Arsenal, Mirabor Usmanov is reported to have said: "Such a flattering offer from the English club was possible thanks to the successful performance of the Uzbekistan team at the 2011 Asian Cup, where the Uzbek team finished fourth."

The acquisition of midfield reinforcements could quickly become a summer priority for Arsenal after reports on Thursday claimed contract rebel Samir Nasri is a top target for Manchester United. suggests the 23-year-old playmaker - who continues to resist the overtures of Arsenal regarding a new contract - has been identified by Sir Alex Ferguson as an ideal summer signing.


Nasri has just one year remaining on his current contract and, if he refuses to extend his deal, Arsenal may be forced to accept a reasonable offer for his services during the transfer window.

Arsenal will also try desperately to keep hold of captain Cesc Fabregas during the closed season, as Barcelona once again circle for the Spain international.
