Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic has hinted he could be on his way to the Premier League, with Arsenal and Manchester United both linked with a move.

The Serbian joined Borussia Dortmund in 2008 from Mainz and has since made over 160 league appearances for Jurgen Klopp's side. However his contract is up soon and he's yet to commit his future to the club, prompting speculation over his future.


Both Arsenal and Manchester United have been linked with a swoop for the full-back in the past, and now he's hinted that a move could be on the cards soon, with the Premier League in his sights.

He told German magazine Kicker: "First of all, I plan my summer vacation and the Ethiopia trip with my charitable foundation in June. I don't know what happens after that."


When asked about contract talks with Dortmund, Subotic added: "Those are things I don't to talk about in public."

Both Manchester United and Arsenal have also been linked with a move for Subotic's Dortmund team-mate Mats Hummels. 

"I can still imagine playing in a league someday which rates physical football," he explained of a potential move to England.


"The game in England is tougher, more aggressive and more physical - in a sportsmanlike sense. As a centre-back I don't always want to fear just touching an opponent. How can I do my work when my opponent starts crying without contact? And those penalties after dives annoy me, I think that's cheating.

"I just don't like it when an attacker is going at what feels like one kilometre an hour and flies like he's been hit by a car."


As it stands Dortmund are trying to convince the defender to commit his future to the club, however the longer he goes without signing a contract, the more confident either Manchester United or Arsenal will be of getting their man.

He would certainly fill a gap for either side and has proven himself at the very top level in Germany. A new challenge abroad may suit him, and either Arsenal or Manchester United will be glad to have him.

Is Subotic good enough for either Manchester United or Arsenal?
