Sought-after AZ Alkmaar midfielder Rasmus Elm insists he is not thinking about a summer transfer and is fully focused on his club's Eredivisie title push.
The Sweden international was believed to be on the radar of several clubs during the January transfer window, including Manchester United, but no deal materialised.
Lazio, CSKA Moscow and Rubin Kazan have also been linked with the 23-year-old, who is contracted in Alkmaar until summer 2013.
But Elm has put any decision over his future on hold until the end of the season as he looks to help current Eredivisie leaders AZ to the title.
"I have not thought about what I'm going to do after this season," he told Aftonbladet. "If I make a decision then you will find out."
Elm's agent, Patrick Moerk, has reiterated that clubs from all over Europe have been in contact over the midfielder.
"Clubs from across Europe have contacted me about Rasmus," he said. "I won't discuss individual clubs now."
