Serdar Tasci's agent has hinted the Stuttgart defender could still make a move to Arsenal.
The Gunners have held discussions with the Bundesliga giants but are yet to make an offer for the Germany international, who has also reportedly attracted interest from Tottenham and Juventus.
However, Tasci's agent Uli Ferber has indicated an Arsenal move could still be on the cards by stressing the 23-year-old's admiration for the Emirates club.
Ferber said in The Sun: "Serdar admires English football and has huge respect for Arsenal."
Tasci is currently contracted with Stuttgart until June 2014, with a buy-out clause in the region of £18.5million understood to be included in his deal.
