New York Red Bulls defender Tim Ream has admitted that Arsenal are tracking him.

Tim Ream: Set for stint in England

The USA international is being strongly linked with a move across the Atlantic, after an impressive campaign in New York.

The 24-year-old Ream, who has seven full caps to his name, was asked about reported Arsenal interest and confirmed they wanted him.

"I guess its public knowledge now and there have been others [teams]," Ream said.

"It's good to have teams tracking you but it can't be a distraction either. If something comes of it, so be it. It would be a chance of a lifetime."

Ream is also being tracked by other teams and reports suggest that West Brom have invited him for a trial with a view to a loan move.

"If someone comes and wants me to possibly come over on a loan deal, I think we'll explore that opportunity," he said.

Ream also revealed that he may train with Red Bulls' sister club in Salzburg.

"He [Jurgen Klinsmann, US coach] is kind of setting all of that up," Ream said.

"There is nothing concrete as of yet."
