Hammers and Gunners linked with Saints midfielder


Dusan Tadic shows off his bloody nose he suffered during Serbia’s World Cup qualifier against Wales

Arsenal and West Ham United have  been reported as being set to make a move for Southampton and Serbia international midfielder Dusan Tadic,

The 28-year-old, who has 43 international caps for his country, has scored three goals and provided seven assists in 34 appearances in all competitions for The Saints  this season.

He arrived at St Mary’s Stadium three years ago from FC Twente, but despite featuring 23 times in the Premier League this campaign, Tadic has only managed to stay on the pitch for the full 90 minutes on four occasions, fuelling speculation about his future at Southampton.

And the report suggests Arsenal and West Ham have expressed an interest in the Serbian winger, whilst Juventus, Atletico Madrid and Napoli are also thought to be keen.
