Cabaye: Linked with Arsenal
Lille midfielder Yohan Cabaye has admitted he was flattered to hear that he had been linked with a move to Arsenal.
The highly-rated 23-year-old, who played for France at Under 21 level, has earned rave reviews for his performances in Ligue 1 this season.
He has helped Lille to mount a challenge for European qualification but it appears his displays have not gone unnoticed.
Speculation suggests Arsene Wenger is considering a summer swoop and Cabaye concedes he would find it impossible to resist an offer from the Gunners.
However, there has been no approach as yet and Cabaye insists he is focused solely on trying to do well for Lille.
"I will try to finish the season well with the objective of a European qualification. Then I will take stock," he told Aujourd'hui Sport.
"Arsenal's interest? It is very flattering, but I am under contract and I don't know of any contact.
"Once again I am completely focused on the pitch.
"Would I be attracted? Of course, no one could refuse that. Anyway, I don't think about it."
