Standard Liege starlet Eliaquim Mangala admits he is flattered by talk linking him with a move to Arsenal.
The French stopper impressed hugely when he scored in the recent UEFA Champions League clash between the two sides - which Arsenal won 3-2.
Arsene Wenger is believed to have left Liege with a very good impression of Mangala.
Reports have since suggested that Arsenal are now keeping very close tabs on 17-year-old Mangala.
Speaking to skysports.com, Mangala admits he is flattered.
"I am thrilled to be linked to Arsenal," Mangala said.
"They are on one of the biggest teams in the world, so when you're linked with them it is very good.
"But I liked Standard, so let's wait and see what happens in the future."
