Arsenal's Jose Antonio Reyes is flattered by interest from Real Madrid.Arsenal's Spanish star Jose Antonio Reyes has admitted he is flattered by interest from Real Madrid - but insists that he is focused on The Gunners.
Reyes' agent Jaime Rodriguez suggested that Real were in for his charge on Wednesday - and the forward is pleased that his performances have earned interest.
"I have seen the stories in the media linking me with Real Madrid," admitted Reyes.
"Of course, it's flattering. But not only am I under contract at Arsenal, I am happy here and committed to helping the team win more trophies.
"The season is not over for us. We have much to play for, and I am focused on giving my best so we can finish in the strongest position possible."
Reyes has not managed to replicate the form he showed as Arsenal started the season with a lengthy unbeaten spell but, at 21, remains one of Spain's most promising players.
Real are looking likely to bring in a world class forward in the coming months, with Robinho widely expected to seal his move to La Liga from Brazil.
However, the Madrid giants have often indicated their desire to bring the cream of young Spanish talent to the club, and Reyes certainly fits into that category.
