Emmanuel Adebayor's agent has demanded Arsenal demonstrate their desire to hold on to the in-demand striker.
European giants Barcelona and Milan have made no secret of their interest in the Togo international after he struck 30 goals for The Gunners last term.
However, manager Arsene Wenger is reluctant to allow Adebayor to depart the club he joined from Monaco in 2006, with Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani stating on Wednesday that it is 'impossible' for the Serie A side to meet Arsenal's valuation of the player.
Adebayor's agent, though, feels it is key that Arsenal strongly indicate they are eager to hold on to the 24-year-old, who Stephane Courbis claims has not demanded an increase in wages at Emirates Stadium.
"It is vital that Arsenal show their motivation to keep him," agent Courbis said in the Daily Star.
"There has been a love story between Adebayor and Arsenal and his relationship with Arsene Wenger is based on trust and respect.
"If this was a money problem, then he would have asked to leave. He is a man of heart, not of money. He is not greedy."
