Russian youngster Igor Diveev has admitted that hes flattered by Arsenals interest this summer.
Diveev impressed as Russias Under-20 side reached the final of the COTIF-2018 tournament earlier this month and the youngsters performances have caught the attention of Arsenal.
The 18-year-old defender currently plays for Russian outfit Ufa and the clubs president, Shamil Gazizov, has confirmed that the Gunners are circling.
Reports suggest that Arsenal are set to offer Diveev a trial but the teenager insists there has been nothing concrete from the north London giants.
I read about all this on the internet before the match with Dinamo, he said after Ufas 3-0 defeat on Monday night.
Of course, the attention of such a club is pleasant, but I do not know anything concrete yet.
Arsenal signed Stephan Lichtsteiner, Matteo Guendouzi, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Bernd Leno and Lucas Torreira this summer following the arrival of Unai Emery.
Despite five new signings, though, the Gunners are yet to record a victory in the Premier League after defeats to Manchester City and Chelsea.
