The mercurial Bulgaria international’s future at Craven Cottage has been in doubt for some time now after the striker’s agent revealed that his client was unhappy with life at the struggling west London club and wanted to leave the Cottagers in the January transfer window.

And when those comments were also followed by stories linking the 32-year-old with a possible switch across the capital to the Emirates, with the north London club themselves in desperate need of more striking options up front in order to provide backup for first-choice forward Olivier Giroud, many assumed that the Gunners head coach Arsene Wenger was all set to make a move for the player at some point this month.

However, Fulham officials have refused to make any comment on the matter, while new boss Rene Meulensteen added: “No. There is no problem at all, he is a Fulham player.”

Meanwhile, the Dutchman also went on to say that the Bulgarian would be looking to impress when Fulham travel to take on Arsenal in the league this weekend: “I know how he is and Berba sees this as an important game against Arsenal.”
