Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny has dismissed speculation linking him with a move away from the club this summer.
Koscielny has reportedly draw interest from the likes of Barcelona and Bayern Munich following a strong second half of the season.
But the 27-year-old says he has no intention of leaving Arsenal and is happy with life at the club.
Asked if he was seeking a move from Arsenal, Koscielny told reporters: "I never said that. I feel very well at Arsenal. I am aware it’s a great club and I have a four-year contract. I know there’s talk about me and Barcelona and Bayern, but people make their own conclusions.
"The facts are simple: I have a contract at a club where I am happy. Full stop. We all know how situations change in football but I repeat that I’m not one to make castles in the sky. I live in the moment, I seek nothing but to play the best I can."
The defender went on to say that his main goal is to win with the Gunners, and he seems happy to be at such a stable club.
"In my mind my goal is to win trophies with Arsenal with whom I’m about to start preseason training," he said. "I’ve no ulterior motives. I’m at a healthy club, which plays beautiful football, doesn’t lose money every year, sticks to its own budget and plays in the Champions League. Not many players can say the same."
