ABOVE: Odil Ahmedov is not short of self-belief
I am happy at Anzhi but I'd like to try England or Spain
ODIL AHMEDOV has claimed that Arsenal want to sign him.
Ahmedov, 25, plays his club football for mega-rich Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala and says Arsenal scouts were keeping taps on him throughout last season.
He told Russian newspaper Izvestia: "It is true I have interest from Arsenal - their scouts have watched me in every match this season.
"If I move there, I could be a huge success but there is no bid yet.
Ahmedov made his international debut for Uzbekistan when he was just 19.
He joined Anzhi from Uzbek club FC Pakhtakor in 2011 and has scored twice in 60 Russian Premier League games.
