Marseille's N'Koulou humbled by Arsenal interest but happy where he is

Marseille defender Nicolas N'Koulou admits being linked with Arsenal is flattering but he insists he is happy at his current club.

The 21-year old Cameroon international is attracting the attention of the Gunners, who he kept a clean sheet against in the Champions League earlier this month, but he says he is content at the Stade Velodrome after joining Marseille from Monaco in the summer.

"I am flattered by clubs linked with me but, to be honest, I love being with this club," he told "They give me all I want in a big club.

"But once you are linked with clubs such as Arsenal and others, you take notice and it can make you lose your head.

"But I am calm and want to win trophies here and maybe one day I will move to one of the bigger clubs in the world."
