Spahic claims Arsenal talks

Montpellier defender Emir Spahic has claimed Arsenal are in negotiations for his signature.

Arsene Wenger has confirmed he is looking to bring in at least one more defender before the close of the transfer window and reports over the weekend suggested Spahic, 29, was a possible target.

"The most important thing is that so far the negotiations go as planned and that the transfer could be completed soon," Spahic told SportSport.ba. "Arsenal is a great club, I'm an admirer of Arsene Wenger and I hope that Montpellier will cooperate."

Spahic, the Bosnia and Herzegovina captain, is under contract with Montpellier until 2014.

Montpellier boss Rene Girard has suggested he is reluctant to allow Spahic to leave the club. Asked about the Arsenal rumours, he told Le Midi Libre: "I'm flabbergasted. There has never been any question of Emir's departure."

He added, jokingly, that he would sell "if the English are willing to give us €25 million".
