It has been reported that Borussia Dortmund midfielder Sven Bender is open to move to Arsenal.
The 25 year old defensive midfielder has been on the Gunners’ radar for some time, but injuries have limited his opportunities and also saw him miss the World Cup.
He told Kicker: “I know my skills, and others are also aware of them. When I am fit, I also want to play.
“Nobody has contacted me yet.
“What can I say about those rumours? What is being reported in England is just rumours.
“I really like English football. Outside of the Bundesliga, it would fit my style of play best.
“Should I ever consider a move, the Premier League would be the only league coming into my thinking.”
