Crystal Palace midfielder McArthur not concerned by Arsenal links

Crystal Palace midfielder James McArthur says he is not buying into rumours linking him with a move to Arsenal and insists his focus is purely on maintaining his current form for the Eagles.

It is understood Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been keeping tabs on McArthur, who he reportedly sees as midfield cover for injured duo Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla.

However, McArthur is not interested in the speculation linking him with a move to the Emirates Stadium, despite Palace boss Alan Pardew insisting he is 'not surprised' with the link.

"It's nice of the manager to say - but I'm not going to listen to the rumours," McArthur told the Croydon Advertiser.

"I am just going to go about my job at Crystal Palace, because I am really enjoying my football."
