Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has reiterated his happiness at the Emirates Stadium amid reports of interest in his services from La Liga giants Barcelona.

This week, it was reported in the Spanish media that Barcelona, while satisfied with their current manager Xavi, were keeping an eye on Arteta after being thoroughly impressed with his success in rebuilding the team - something Barcelona are looking to experience themselves right now.

Asked for his thoughts towards the rumours, Arteta - who spent time in the Camp Nou academy as a player - was quick to brush off the speculation.

"What I can say is I am happy and proud to be where I am," he told a press conference.
