The agent of in-demand Basel defender Fabian Schar has refused to be drawn into naming names over which clubs are interested in signing his client.

Schar is known to be attracting the eyes of a number of Europe's elite, with English giants Arsenal, German heavyweights Borussia Dortmund and Italian champions Juventus all keen on the Switzerland international.


His agent will confirm that scouts are flocking to watch the Basel defender in action however, even if he will not go into specifics concerning interested clubs.

Dimitrios Papadopoulos told Tutto Mercato: "There are clubs in the Champions League that like Fabian, but together we have decided not to name names or get into specifics.


"He has all the qualities to become a player of international importance.

"He is a modern player, I can confirm all the scouts, coaches and executives come to see him, but do not ask me who."

The 21-year-old centre-back is under contract with Basel until the summer of 2015, although the Swiss side hold an option to extend that by a further year.
