Lukas Podolski has played down rumours suggesting he could be set to leave Arsenal for Juventus in the summer.
The 27-year-old has not always been a regular in the Gunners side and has not played a full 90 minutes since January, leading to reports he could be set for a move to the Old Lady at the end of the season.
However, although he is flattered by the interest from the Turin giants, Podolski has insisted he is happy at the Emirates and has no problem with boss Arsene Wenger.
When quizzed about the rumours, the German international told Bild: "I want to say two things about that. First: Its not my fault that clubs are interested in me.
"And second: The interest of other clubs also makes me proud, because I see it as an acknowledgement of my performances that I have shown in London so far."
Atletico Madrid could also offer him the chance to play in La Liga next season, but it seems as though the German is ready to fight for his place at the Emirates Stadium.
