Reports have claimed Manchester United have been handed a massive boost in their pursuit of Fabian Schar.
The 22-year-old Swiss international has been heavily linked with a move to the Gunners, as Louis Van Gaal looks to add to his defensive line.
And the player – valued at £10m by Basel – says he is now open to a move to Germany, England or a big side in Italy.
As quoted on the Daily Express website, he said: “Basel are open to negotiations, but at this moment I have decided that I want to concentrate on my performances.
“I went through a difficult period and it wasn’t the right time to discuss my renewal. I don’t want to be worrying about that now.
“My dream remains to have an experience abroad. I’ve always said that if the opportunity presented itself, I would take it, obviously in agreement with Basel.
“I need a team with important prospects. I’d like the Bundesliga, Premier League or top Italian clubs like Inter, Milan and Juventus. I couldn’t say no.
“I want to hear all my options and consider them carefully. There was some contact in the summer, but nothing serious.”
