Premier League quartet Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton and Manchester City are all believed to be monitoring the progress of giant Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic. The 20-year-old 6ft 4in centre-back made 33 league appearances last season - netting six times - after arriving from Mainz. And having also made his breakthrough into the Serbian national team - for whom Subotic has made four appearances and scored against the Faroe Islands - interest in the youngster has inevitably intensified. Believed to be valued at around £10-12 million, Dortmund are hopeful that no club will be willing to part with such a large amount for the starlet. And although Subotic himself has admitted it is too soon for him to be thinking of a big-money move abroad, he revealed he would be willing to move on should a club make an offer that is too good to turn down. “I am just 25-years of age in five years time. If I would have the desire to move on that would still be a good time," he said, as reported by Bild. “I made progress at Dortmund last season and it would be too early to move abroad. "I still have a lot to learn. At this point in time it would take an extraordinary bid to see me leaving. “This would be great for both, Borussia Dortmund and me. They would have big money and I would know that this new club is really interested in me as a player."
