Hamburg forward Gokhan Tore admits it is an honour to be linked to Rubin Kazan, just six months after moving to Germany from Chelsea.

The 19-year-old Turkish international has turned in a series of scintillating performances in the Bundesliga, and has attracted attention from a number of clubs around Europe.

Tore was plucked from Stamford Bridge by the Blues' former sporting director Frank Arnesen, just days after the arrival of Andre Villas-Boas, linking up with the Danish chief at the Imtech Arena.

Whilst the teenager insists he is focused on Hamburg, Rubin's interest has prompted the Hamburg boss to rule out any possibility of a transfer, saying Tore is simply not for sale.

"It is an honour for me to see a club like this keen on my services after just six months of duty in the Bundesliga," Tore is quoted as saying in Sport-BILD weekly.

"I am actually focused on Hamburg. I am very happy with my situation at the club."

Arnesen remains adamant there is no room for negotiation when the transfer window reopens in January, having worked so hard to sign the former Chelsea player, who is under contract at Hamburg until 2014.

"Gokhan Tore is a player of our club, he is a first-team regular," he explained.

"There is no sort of pain-barrier in terms of bids and offers, he is just not for sale. He is staying on."
