Arsene Wenger insists he will not be leaving Arsenal this summer despite rumours he could take over from Laurent Blanc as head coach of his native France.

The 62-year-old Gunners boss has been heavily linked with the Les Bleus post, after the former Bordeaux coach stepped down following the country's disappointing Euro 2012 campaign.

France progressed to the knockout stages after finishing runners-up of Group D, where they faced eventual winners Spain in a 2-0 quarter final defeat.

Among the top names linked to the job are Paul Le Guen and Luis Fernandez, with

Marseille coach Didier Deschamps is the current bookies' favourite to succeed Blanc, while Paul le Guen and Luis Fernandez are also believed to be in the frame.

"There are a lot of names," explained Wenger in an interview with Telefoot. "But me, I will be very busy with Arsenal where my contract still runs for two years."

The longest-serving manager in the north London club's history remains as committed as ever, and seemingly has no desire to leave the Emirates Stadium.
