Manchester United, Liverpool, and Arsenal target Neven Subotic has ruled out leaving Borussia Dortmund for another Bundesliga club, but says a move to England may be too good to turn down.

The 22-year-old defender has attracted plenty of interest from across Europe following a series of commanding performances in the German top-flight.

Subotic was rumoured to be high on Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger's list of prospective summer targets, but the Gunners instead opted to complete a deadline day deal for Per Mertesacker - who moved to the Emirates Stadium for a fee in the region of £9million.

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish was also credited with an interest in the Serbian stopper, as he looked to strengthen the Reds' defensive department. However, the Anfield club chose to sign South American starlet Sebastian Coates - international teammate of the Merseysiders Uruguayan hitman Luis Suarez.


Sir Alex Ferguson is a known admirer of Subotic too - but having added to his Red Devils ranks with the capture of promising England U21 international Phil Jones, the future of Manchester United's defence looks to be in good hands, meaning a move to Old Trafford looks increasingly unlikely.

Despite that, Subotic revealed to German newspaper Bild, that if England came calling, in the form of Arsenal, Liverpool, or Manchester United, then he would have to consider his options.

"I have no reason to go away from here," he said. "I feel good and this is a great city.

"I could never go to another club in Germany and, if I was to leave here, I would only consider a powerful club in England."
