Cagliari president Massimo Cellino insist he wants to retain Arsenal target Federico Marchetti.

The Italy goalkeeper has been linked with the Gunners, who are also on the trail of Fulham's Mark Schwarzer, and although Cellino admits it is nice to be honoured with interest from a big club, he feels that the 27-year old will stay at the Stadio Sant'Elia.

"It's an honour for us that Marchetti is the national keeper and he deserves to be at such a big stage but we're not in a hurry to sell," admitted Cellino.

"Let's wait and then we will make a decision.

"I have given his agent until the end of June to see if we receive any offers for him, otherwise he will stay with us."
