Lucas Torreira has quashed rumours linking him with a move to AC Milan by insisting he is very happy at Arsenal.

The Uruguay international, who joined the north London club last summer from Sampdoria for a reported fee of £26million, said in recent days that he preferred life in Italy to England, sparking rumours that he could be on his way to Milan.

However, the 23-year-old has pledged his future to Unai Emery’s side, adding he hasn’t received any call from the Serie A giants.

"About AC Milan's interest, I don't know much," he told reporters on Wednesday as beinsports quoted. "This matter was generated due to my statements made in a press conference in Montevideo.

"No one has called me from Milan. Nowadays, I'm at Arsenal, one of the greatest teams in the world.

"You all know it has been complicated for me, I'm from a little town and now playing in the Premier League, but I'm happy and proud of being part of Arsenal.

"I made that statement about how hard it has been adapting in England, because it's not easy to arrive in a country where you don't know the language, where it is hard to talk to your team-mates, it's not easy at all.

"But I'm very happy and I don't think about anything else besides Arsenal. At the moment, I'm with my national team, I want to be focused on that.

"I don't know what can happen in the future. Today, I'm an Arsenal player. I prefer to talk about Arsenal due to respect to their fans and my team-mates as well."
