Arsenal target Nicolas N’Koulou is committed to current club Marseille and is unlikely to leave.

The 22-year-old defender has been flattered to be linked with the Gunners, Barcelona and AC Milan but he is looking forward to doing battle with Paris Saint-Germain.

“When you are a player and you are being connected with all the big clubs in the world it is flattering, but you should not lose your head,” N’Koulou said.

“You need to work harder and have the appetite to improve yourself.

“I love Marseille and am happy to play for the biggest club in this country.

“The challenge we face today with the big spenders like PSG is fascinating.

“I am staying to test myself against the Ibrahimovics of this world.”
