Arsenal defender target going nowhere, says Nana

Published Add your comment

Arsenal target Nicolas N'Koulou is happy at Marseille and has no plans to move on in January, according to his agent.

The 21-year-old Cameroon international defender has attracted interest from a host of clubs in England after a series of scintillating performances for Marseille this season.

N'Koulou recently admitted he was flattered by speculation linking him with a move to Arsenal, after it was reported that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is considering an attempt to bring him to the Emirates Stadium in the New Year.

However, according to the player's representative Maxime Nana, N'Koulou is focused on life in Ligue 1 and has no intention of leaving Stade Velodrome anytime soon.

"Nicolas is fine at Marseille at the moment," Nana told L'Equipe. "He is keen to experience a lot of success at Marseille.

"As long as he has the trust of the coach [Didier Deschamps] and the club, there is no reason to look elsewhere."

Arsenal's defensive frailties were on show once again as they fell to a 3-1 defeat at Olympiacos in the UEFA Champions League, but any hopes they may have had about signing N'Koulou now look to have faded, with the latest omission made by one of the hottest prospects in France.
