Felipe Melo's spokesman has told skysports.com that the midfielder is settled at Fiorentina despite rumours linking him with a move elsewhere.

Melo has reportedly caught the eye of a number of European clubs after an impressive 2008/09 season at Stadio Artemio Franchi.

The 25-year-old has continued to shine during this summer's Confederations Cup, playing every minute of Brazil's march to the semi-finals.

Rumours continue to link Melo, who signed for the Viola from Almeria last year, with a switch to Premier League side Arsenal.

However, Melo's spokesman, Emiliano Froldi, has explained that the player is content at Fiorentina.

Froldi told skysports.com: "Felipe is playing very well in the Confederations Cup and he had a tremendous season with Fiorentina.

"It's normal that there are rumours about him because of his great performances but the player and his family are very happy in Florence.

"He loves the city and he has a very good relationship with his team-mates, the fans and the club."
