Agent pushed about Arsenal interest from Vitoria midfielder Bamba

Ibrahima Bamba's agent has played down speculation linking him with a move to Arsenal.

The VitoriaGuimaraes defensive midfielder was being linked with a move to the Premier League table toppers.

The 20-year-old has a release clause of €30 million.

However, suggestions in the Portuguese press that his agent Filipe Macedo Alves had flown to London for talks with Arsenal have been downplayed.

“It's true that I was in London, but I am just arriving from Germany, where I was watching Edmond Tapsoba's game," Alves told O Jogo.

“Bamba is not the only player I work with.

“He's a player profile that is clearly of interest to many clubs, but today he is a Vitória player and is only focused on Monday's game in Chaves. The market is open, but I'm not going to feed rumors."
