Emmanuel Adebayor wants to discuss a new contract at Arsenal after claiming he is aware of interest from Manchester United.
The Togo striker joined The Gunners from Monaco just over 12 months ago, but is keen to be rewarded with improved terms.
He has been linked with Premiership rivals United, while Spanish side Valencia are also reported to be on his trail.
But while the 23-year-old is flattered by the interest from other clubs, he concedes he would be willing to sign a new deal at Emirates Stadium.
"My agent has told me both Manchester United and Valencia are following me," Adebayor is quoted in the News of the World.
"But I am not getting carried away with that, even if they're two massive clubs.
"I am doing well at Arsenal, but they have to show me they want to construct something with regard to my new status in the team.
"I would love to extend my contract. I am in the heart of the supporters."
Adebayor, who is currently serving a domestic suspension after his red card in the Carling Cup final, has scored six goals in 21 Premiership appearances this season.
