The Slovenia international currently plays for Red Star Belgrade and was voted their player of the year following an impressive 2013/14 campaign.

Pecnik’s performances have fuelled transfer speculation, with reports suggesting that Celtic are keeping a close eye on his progress.

The 28-year-old insists there have been no talks over his future but he would be interested in a move back to England or Scotland.

He previously played for Sheffield Wednesday and would love to prove that he could play in the Championship.

“It is flattering if Celtic are really interested in me,” the attacking midfielder told Sportal.

“Unfortunately I only read about this in media, I have not had any contact with the club.

“But I would be happy to return to Britain, even at Championship level.

“When I was at Sheffield, the manager gave up on me too soon. I'm sure that I could play a prominent role in this league.”

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
