Arsenal & Tottenham target not thinking about future

Published Add your comment

Barcelona striker David Villa is putting thoughts about his future to one side until after this summer's Confederations Cup, having attracted transfer interest from Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, reports Sky Sports.

The 31-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from Camp Nou this summer, after finding himself consistently in and out of Tito Vilanova's first-team in 2012/13.

Villa returned from a broken leg injury at the turn of the year, but has struggled to rediscover the sort of form that secured his place as Spain's record goalscorer.

Now part of Vicente del Bosque's 23-man squad for the Confederations Cup in Brazil later this month, the Barca star is focusing all his energies on preparing for the tournament, rather than being distracted by speculation.

"I always try to think of the present. I will go to the Confederations Cup and try to play a good role there," Villa told the Spanish press.

"We'll need to analyse many things during the summer and then we'll see. Right now I'm not thinking about anything else than playing football."

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been credited with an interest in bringing Villa to the Emirates Stadium, as he looks to strengthen his forward line.

However, Arsenal will face competition from north London rivals Tottenham, with Andre Villas-Boas also keen to add a new striker to his squad at White Hart Lane ahead of the 2013/14 campaign.
