Emmanuel Adebayor insists he is happy to stay at Arsenal despite alleged interest from AC Milan and Chelsea.
The striker has been repeatedly linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium this summer but while Adebayor admits he is flattered by interest from Italy, he wants to stay with Arsenal.
"All I can say is I am a footballer and if a club like Milan are interested in me then I cannot lie to you, I am happy, because it is Milan," said Adebayor. "But the thing is that it stops there - I am very happy playing for Arsenal, and this is what I always say.
"At the end of the day you just get bored of this - people read these things and then the fans will boo you for what you never said, but again I repeat that I am very happy here.
"I have got nothing to say to anybody. People are always there to judge - but they are not on the pitch, they are writing what they want to.
"I cannot explain myself to those people. They think what they are saying is right. I cannot do a better job than a journalist. I cannot do a better job than politicians - what I can do is play my football.
"This season I have given 100% of what I have, and I'm looking forward to coming back next season and trying to achieve things.
"I don't care what we have to do to win something - we have got to do whatever it takes to bring trophies home."
Adebayor is equally as outspoken when it comes to the subject of his form during a season which has been blighted by injuries.
"When you score 30 goals in a season you can expect that the following year there will be a little bit more pressure and attention on you," Adebayor told the June issue of the official Arsenal magazine.
"If you want to be a big player you have to manage this and find a solution - that is what I have been trying to do this time.
"I cannot say I'm very proud of my season, but I'm not too upset about how the way things have gone either. I have been injured several times since August, and before this I had never had an injury of longer than a week or two in my professional career.
"This was my first season in which that happened and I have just tried to do whatever I can.
"Overall, I feel a little bit sorry for the club because I think Arsenal deserves a little bit more than what we are giving it at the moment."Reuse content
