Arsenal target Daniele Baselli has played down rumours he's set to sign for Paris Saint-Germain this summer, and reiterated his commitment to current club Atalanta.

TalkSPORT reports how the 22-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d'Italia this summer, following an impressive campaign in Serie 'A'.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been credited with an interest in bringing Baselli to the Emirates Stadium as he looks to further strengthen his squad ahead of the 2014/15 campaign.

However, Arsenal could face competition from PSG with the Ligue 1 giants also believed to be monitoring the former Italy U21 international's development at Atalanta, as Laurent Blanc weighs up an attempt to lure him to Parc des Princes.

Baselli is valued at a modest £2million, but has dismissed speculation he could be on the move, despite admiring glances from both French managers.

"We always talk about the market, and I think sometimes that can weigh heavily on people's minds," he said.

"I honestly don't know whether to believe these rumours about PSG or not because, for me, they seem a bit far-fetched.

"I am just concentrating on doing well for Atalanta, then we'll see what happens."

Baselli has been compared in playing style to current PSG midfielder Marco Verratti, another star that has previously courted attention from Arsenal.
