Highly-rated striker Alessandro Rosina has pledged to focus on his future at Torino.
Alessandro Rosina has pledged to focus on his future at Torino despite reports linking him with Arsenal.
The gifted young striker has scored eight goals in Serie A this season and has seen his reputation grow with a number of impressive performances.
Both Roma and Milan are believed to be pursuing Rosina, although rumours in his home country suggest that Arsene Wenger has dispatched his scouts to compile a report on the Italian youth international.
Despite growing talk of a possible transfer, Rosina insists he is only thinking of prolonging his progression with Granata.
"I want to continue in Torino's jersey," Rosina told Italian daily La Stampa.
"There is a lot of talk about my future, but for my contract there is time, as president Urbano Cairo always says.
"I'm not saying there is a long time, but I want to underline a few things.
"I wish coach [Alberto] Zaccheroni all the best because I hold him in big esteem and he has been a really important coach for me.
"I have never criticised him and his sacking was a loss for the whole team."
Torino president Cairo has also underlined that Rosina is still contracted to the club for another two seasons.
"He has a deal with us until 2009," said Cairo.
"It's clear he is making the difference for this Torino team and that he is followed a lot.
"But the will to renew is down to both sides."
