Saviola heavily linked with Gunners move

July 12, 2006

Argentina international Javier Saviola could be poised for a move to Arsenal, according to the striker's agent.

The 24-year-old Saviola has struggled to make an impression at Barcelona and was loaned to Sevilla last season, helping them lift the UEFA Cup.

Saviola's agent Alfredo Cabrera Brizuela told The Sun: 'He will make his decision based on football and that points to the Gunners.

'He will have no problem playing in England because he is a world-class player and will be successful in any country.

'This week is very important because he wants to have a holiday knowing he has his future sorted out.'
