Arsenal and Manchester United have been told to hurry up and make a move for Milos Krasic or risk losing out to Juventus.
The CSKA Moscow star has been scouted by all of the Barclay's Premier League big guns and turned down a move to Manchester City in January.
Inter Milan are also keen, but Juve have stolen a march on their rivals by making the first move along with Fenerbahce, but Krasic has little interest in relocating to Turkey.
The 25-year-old Serbia winger wants to sort out his future before the World Cup and his agent Dejan Joksimovic admits a move to Turin could be wrapped up this week.
'The English are interested in Krasic,' said Joksimovic. 'It's not only Manchester United with their eye on him, but also Arsenal.
'However, neither have yet made a concrete offer. At the moment, Milos has offers from two clubs: Fenerbahce and Juventus.
'The Turks are very interested and have offered almost twice as much (wages) as the others. But Krasic is not burning with desire to go to Turkey.
'Milos likes the option of Juventus. He has already received a contract from them. The proposal from the Bianconeri satisfied the player, now the clubs must themselves agree (a fee).'
CSKA had informally set the asking price for Krasic at £12.5m, but Joksimovic believes they could now seek to take advantage of a bidding war by pushing the price up to £16.5m.
