Arsenal have been scouting Serbian defender Milan Vilotic.

A senior scout was sent to Moscow yesterday to watch Serbia’s International friendly with Russia at the Luzhniki stadium.

The Red Star Belgrade centre back came on as a second half substitute but could not prevent Serbia from losing 1-0.

The 24-year-old is highly rated, but Arsene Wenger’s main defensive targets are Phil Jagielka – who Arsenal had a £12m bid turned down for last month – Gary Cahill, Chris Samba and Scott Dann.

Vilotic has one year left on his current contract.
