Wigan striker Arouna Kone has insisted he is happy to remain at Wigan according to The Metro.

The Ivorian forward joined the club last summer and put in a highly impressive debut performance in the Premier League.

Kone’s trickery and dribbling terrorised a number of Premier League defences and won the striker a number of plaudits.

His performances were not enough to keep Wigan in the Premier League though and the club are now facing up to the prospect of playing Championship football next season.

That has sparked the interest of Everton and Liverpool who are thought to be keen to offer Kone a route back into the Premier League.

Everton recently appointed former Wigan boss Roberto Martinez as the man to replace David Moyes and it is thought that the Spanish manager is keen to bring Kone with him to Goodison Park.

Liverpool meanwhile are in the hunt for attacking reinforcements as they prepare for life without want-away striker Luis Suarez.

But Kone has insisted that he is in no rush to leave the Latics. The striker pointed out that his current contract runs until 2015 and that he feels there is a great sense of community at the club.
