French full-back Armand Traore insists he is fully committed to Arsenal despite recently declaring his admiration for French giants PSG.
The 20-year-old was quoted as saying PSG were the 'club of my dreams' and that he would listen carefully if they contacted him over the summer.
However, Traore, who joined the Gunners from Monaco in 2006, has played down the remarks and says he is annoyed at the context in which they have come out.
The promising full-back insists he is only focused on Arsenal and that he hopes to play for PSG one day further down the line and not in the immediate future.
"I am annoyed, because I spoke with good intention, but it hasn't come out that way," explained Traore.
"I said I would maybe like to play there eventually because I grew up supporting PSG, but nowhere near the summer.
"I come from Paris. It is true that I have supported PSG and I like the club, but my ambition is to play for Arsenal and that is it. I am only concentrated on Arsenal.
"I do not want the Arsenal fans to think that my heart is not with this club. I am fully committed with Arsenal and the manager."
