Andre Ayew insists he is settled at Marseille despite being linked with a summer move to Arsenal reports skysports.com.
The 21-year-old Ghanaian international was the subject of much transfer speculation, having attracted interest from a host of clubs around Europe, including Manchester City, Sevilla, and Schalke.
Ayew made it clear to Marseille boss Didier Deschamps from day one that he would not be unsettled, and remained fully committed to the Stade Velodrome.
"The day we returned I told the coach I'd stay," Ayew told L'Equipe. "It was my desire, even though in football you never know what can happen.
"It wasn't a great heartache and I absolutely was not unsettled. I'm lucky to be at Marseille."
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger had been linked with a host of players as he looked to bring in replacements following the Emirates Stadium departure of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri, with Arsenal tipped to complete a €13million deal for Ayew.
Speaking for the first time about the Arsenal link, the French-born African ace admitted that a move to north London does have its allures, due to the club's impressive stadium and training facilities.
"Arsenal? There's everything," he added. "The stadium, team, training complex, finances, that's the image a lot of players dream of."
