Arsenal target Younes Belhanda has admitted to being unsettled by links to the Gunners and does not want to discuss his future until the summer.
Emirates Stadium tactician Arsene Wenger is a known admirer of Belhanda, saying he ‘loves’ his style of play, according to talkSPORT.
The report claims the Morocco international has a desire to move to the Premier League at some point and Wenger’s interest could prove key in any transfer, but the 22-year-old wants to just concentrate on the fortunes of his club Montpellier at the moment.
“Right now I only want to finish the season well. There are nine games left and the team face major battles, so I do not want to talk about next season,” he is quoted as saying to L’Equipe.
“Bids from other clubs disturb me a bit, but I prefer to stay out of it and just stay focused on my work in the field.”
Montpellier are chasing the Ligue 1 title and are currently top of the table on goal difference over Paris St Germain, so he has much to occupy himself with.
Belhanda is the club’s second top scorer after goal sensation Olivier Giroud, who, according to this report, is also a target of Arsenal.
Belhanda’s dribbling style makes him an exciting player to watch and he has also provided a number of assists this season, while his adaptability and technical ability make him a typical Wenger signing.
