Despite being just 21, Vrsaljko has four caps for the Croatia senior side to his name already, and the Daily Mirror's John Cross claims he has attracted the attention of the Gunners as a potential replacement for Sagna:
Arsenal boss Wenger has detailed his scouts to be on red alert for a new right back as Bacary Sagna is in the final year of his contract.
They do have England international Carl Jenkinson but there are concerns Sagna may not re-sign so they are beginning to look around for replacements.
Croatian international Vrsaljko, 21, is also attracting interest from Inter Milan even though he has only been at Genoa since July.
Cross also claims that Sagna is likely to recieve some lucrative offers to leave the Emirates, with offers from the Middle East and his native France. He has been with Arsenal since 2007, when he arrived from Auxerre. He has since become a mainstay of the Arsenal defence, even filling in at centre-back on numerous occasions.
Vrsaljko—who can also play on the left side of defence as well as his more usual role of right-back—is likely to be on the radar of many of Europe's top clubs after a stunning start to his Genoa career. The Italian press are already mooting a fee of £12.5 million if he is to be lured away from his new club so early into his spell with Genoa.
Should Arsenal let Sagna leave? Would Vrsaljko be a good replacement? Leave your comments below.
