Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata has reaffirmed his commitment to the club despite Arsenal expressing an interest in his services.
Speculation has been growing over the future of the Spain Under-21 international who has found first-team chances hard to come by with Los Blancos this season.
Arsene Wenger is understood to have been keeping close tabs on the 21-year-old's progress with a view to signing him in January.
The Gunners currently sit top of the table with a four-point advantage over Chelsea and Wenger is keen on adding extra reinforcements to his side to help with the push for the title.
Morata said: "I feel that the boss (Carlo Ancelotti) really trusts me, so does (Ancelotti's assistant Zinedine) Zidane, all of the coaching staff and the club.
"I am 21 years old, I am happy at Real Madrid and I want to be here for a long time.
"A player always wants to play and the manager has shown that he trusts in me. He has played me in a lot of difficult matches and I am very happy. I have to repay his trust in me."
