Ewood Park skipper wants to play at the Emirates.
Blackburn Rovers captain Christopher Samba is keen on a move to Arsenal because he wants to fulfil his ambitions of playing Champions League football.
The 27-year-old has been linked with a move to the Emirates all summer but his club’s £15million valuation has put off Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.
The Congo international has four more years left on a contract he only signed in February but he now wants to leave Ewood Park to play at the highest level.
“A player who has no ambition to play at a higher level has made a mistake and chosen the wrong sport,” Samba told The Sun.
“I don’t know what is happening with Arsenal because I am not dealing with it and it’s not my problem.
“At the minute I am still at Blackburn but it would be a big lie if I told you ‘everything is good and I don’t want to play in the Champions League’.
“I don’t know what the board and the manager at Blackburn are planning or what provisions they have made for signing new players.
“It is difficult for me at the moment because I’m just waiting to see what happens and concentrating on my preparation for the new season.”
