The Senegalese star, who has scored 11 Premier League goals so far this season, is again being linked with a January shift to the Gunners but he suggests he is not leaving the Northeast anytime soon.
"Arsenal are one of these teams who make you dream," Ba told Canal+.
"I have nothing to say about the speculation. Nothing is about to happen.
"The press know Arsenal need another striker and also know about my release clause, and make their own mind up about it."
