Southampton youngster Morgan Schneiderlin admits that he is flattered to be linked with a move to Premier League giants Arsenal.
The 19-year-old, who joined the Saints for 1.5million euros from French side Strasbourg in the summer, has impressed in the Championship this season.
“I have heard about ArsenalÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s interest in the press, and that is very exciting to be honest,” said Schneiderlin when speaking to Setanta Sports.
He continued: “But my agent is currently on holiday so I have not had the chance to speak with him, although I will when he returns. I am waiting to know what is going to happen.
“Moving there? Yes, no…we will see if something is made to happen. To be honest I feel good at Southampton, as I’ve learned a lot in 10 games.
“I am aware I must improve in some areas of my game and Arsenal may be the best place to do it, but I can develop as a player at Southampton, too.
“Seeing my name and ArsenalÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s in the same phrase makes me happy, as their football is what I like watching. They are one of the clubs that a footballer cannot refuse to join.”
