Argentina international Javier Saviola is considering a move to Arsenal.

The striker’s agent Alfredo Cabrera Brizuela said: “He will make his decision based on football and that points to the Gunners.

“He will have no problem playing in England because he is world-class and will be successful in any country.

“This week is very important because he wants to have a holiday knowing he has his future sorted out.”

Saviola, is registered with Barcelona, although he spent last season on loan with Sevilla after struggling to make an impact at Camp Nou following his arrival in 2001.

Saviola’s Barcelona contract is set to expire in 2007 and the European champions are keen to sell.
