Emmanuel Eboue has reiterated his commitment to Arsenal amid speculation linking him with a switch to Atletico Madrid.

The Ivory Coast international was a transfer target for Fiorentina over the summer after a difficult few months at Emirates Stadium last season.

But a move failed to materialise and he has started the new campaign in fine form, helping the Gunners notch some impressive results.

Rumours have nevertheless surfaced to suggest that Eboue could soon be on his way to Atletico, with Spanish newspaper Supersport claiming a deal is close to being agreed.

Eboue has insisted there is no truth in the stories as he is still loving life with Arsenal.

“I am upset with all those links, it is paper talk,” the 26-year-old told

“I have been linked all summer to Fiorentina, now it is Atletico.

“I don’t know where they get the news but I am fine at Arsenal. I love this club.” (Sky Sports)

Speculation about Emmanuel Eboue’s Arsenal future have been rife so I guess the Ivorian felt that he should come out and state his case. The utility player has found himself with an extended run in the first team in the last couple of months, during which time the club has gone on a fine winning streak and Eboue has been in good form, but when all Wenger’s first choice players are back from injury, what then? In all likelihood the 26 year old will again find himself bench bound and there will come a time when he considers what he wants from his career. Arguably he could retain a lengthy run elsewhere and perhaps that would be more beneficial for his career than simply waiting for players to get injured before getting a look in.
