Ahmedov, 23, is currently on loan at Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala from Pakhtakor Tashkent in his homeland, but he has been linked with a move to England.

The midfielder has now claimed Arsenal have sent scouts to every game he has played in and says he would relish a move to Emirates Stadium.

"It is true that Arsenal are interested in me. Now I am watched by the English team's scouts. They are watching me in every game," Ahmedov told RIA Novosti. "If I move to Arsenal, it will be a success not only for me, but for the whole Uzbek football."
