Alessandro Rosina has pledged to focus on his future at Torino despite reports linking him with Arsenal.

The gifted young striker has scored eight goals in Serie A this season and has seen his reputation grow with a number of impressive performances.

Both Roma and Milan are believed to be pursuing Rosina, although rumours in his home country suggest that Arsene Wenger has dispatched his scouts to compile a report on the Italian youth international.

Despite growing talk of a possible transfer, Rosina insists he is only thinking of prolonging his progression with Granata.

"I want to continue in Torino's jersey," Rosina told Italian daily La Stampa.

"There is a lot of talk about my future, but for my contract there is time, as president Urbano Cairo always says.

"I'm not saying there is a long time, but I want to underline a few things.

"I wish coach [Alberto] Zaccheroni all the best because I hold him in big esteem and he has been a really important coach for me.

"I have never criticised him and his sacking was a loss for the whole team."

Torino president Cairo has also underlined that Rosina is still contracted to the club for another two seasons.

"He has a deal with us until 2009," said Cairo.

"It's clear he is making the difference for this Torino team and that he is followed a lot.

"But the will to renew is down to both sides."
