Arsenal set eyes on summer move for Fiorentina defender

Although we are four months away from the summer transfer window, there are still a fair few Arsenal transfer rumours appearing in the press.

Todays offering from the Mail reckons that Arsenal are scouting the young Serbian U21 defender Matija Nastasic, who has broken into Fiorentina’s first team this season having already made 15 appearances.

Fiorentina snapped up Nastasic from Partizan Belgrade last January for just €2.5m after he made some impressive appearances while on loan at Teleoptic (Partizan’s feeder club) in the 2010/11 season and he settled into Italian life very quickly.

Nastasic certainly has every virtue of a typical Wenger signing, he is already 6ft 2in despite his age and has been a regular in the Serbian youth sides for the last three years. He has proved he can travel well and learn a new language, and is also a very talented footballer!

What more could Wenger ask for?
