The 21-year old Celtic midfielder told Kenyan TV station NTV that his proposed summer shift to North London could become a distinct possibility.
"It's not a good time to talk about this, but right now I still have a contract with Celtic," he said of the Gunners links.
"I'm still their player. If anything comes up that is good for me and good for the club, then I'll move on.
"At the moment, there are some things. There are some talks going on (with Arsenal). But I was concentrating on national duty and I left that for my agent. But I haven't talked with him."
