Southampton midfielder Dusan Tadic has emerged as a potential summer target for Arsenal. The Serbia international is also on the radar of Juventus and Napoli.

Tadic, now 28, has been a crucial performer in the Saints' setup over the years, but he is still disappointed with the lack of 90 minutes of playing time every game.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the player could be the subject of interest from the Gunners among others after they came to know of the player's cheap price tag.

Tadic, who inked a fresh four-year contract earlier last year, could be available for a release clause of just £13m when the transfer window reopens in the summer.

The Serbian playmaker may have been seen as a potential replacement for Mesut Ozil, but it is understood that the World Cup winner could stay put at the Emirates after he hinted that he is 'very happy' with his proceedings in north London.

Tadic has netted 16 goals for Southampton across all competitions since arriving from Eredivisie side Twente in the summer of 2014.
