Belgian midfielder 'flattered' by Arsenal interest

Published Add your comment

Brescia midfielder Omar El Kaddouri is flattered by reports linking him with a January move to Arsenal.

The Belgian continues to impress for his Italian employers with a number of cultured displays in Serie B.

The 20-year-old's recent performances are alleged to have attracted the interest of AC Milan and Napoli, while Arsenal are also said to be keen on the youngster.

El Kaddouri, though, will continue to concentrate on life with Brescia, although he says linking up with Arsene Wenger at Arsenal holds plenty of appeal.

"I am flattered by the interest shown by those clubs but it is not official to me yet so I can't say anything," he explained.

"I have heard through newspapers, so I am relaxed. I just want to continue to play good for Brescia and once January comes we will all see what will happen.


"Being linked with Arsenal? They play the good football I like and Mr Wenger gives a chance to any young players and likes technical players like me.

"Brescia has been good to me and I love this place but once interest is shown by some teams you have to think about it."
