Florian Thauvin insists that he has no plans to leave Marseille, despite reported interest from Arsenal.

The 21-year-old attacking midfielder has long been linked with a move to the north London club, with Serie A side Inter Milan also interested.

However, the France Under-21 international says that he is happy and feels “really good” at the Ligue 1 club.

“The president had contact with Inter, but I don’t know exactly what happened,” said Thauvin.

“Things were clear for the president and me: my departure was out of the question, so honestly I haven’t studied the offer.

“It’s flattering [interest from elsewhere]. [But] I am a Marseille player and they are a big club too. Here I feel really good.”
