Striker happy at Emirates Stadium

Emmanuel Adebayor has insisted he is happy at Arsenal and is growing tired of speculation about his future. The Togo international has been linked with a move away from Emirates Stadium and the likes of AC Milan, Chelsea and Manchester City are all reportedly interested. Adebayor admits it is flattering to be connected with Milan but he has no intention of leaving the Gunners. He said: "All I can say is I am a footballer and if a club like Milan are interested in me then I cannot lie to you, I am happy, because it is Milan. "But the thing is that it stops there - I am very happy playing for Arsenal, and this is what I always say. "At the end of the day you just get bored of this - people read these things and then the fans will boo you for what you never said, but again I repeat that I am very happy here. "I have got nothing to say to anybody. People are always there to judge - but they are not on the pitch, they are writing what they want to. "This season I have given 100 per cent of what I have, and I'm looking forward to coming back next season and trying to achieve things. "I don't care what we have to do to win something - we have got to do whatever it takes to bring trophies home."

Pressure

Adebayor maintains that he should not be criticised for his performances during an injury-plagued season, when he has failed to hit the heights of last term. "When you score 30 goals in a season you can expect that the following year there will be a little bit more pressure and attention on you," Adebayor told the June issue of the official Arsenal magazine. "If you want to be a big player you have to manage this and find a solution - that is what I have been trying to do this time. "I cannot say I'm very proud of my season, but I'm not too upset about how the way things have gone either. I have been injured several times since August, and before this I had never had an injury of longer than a week or two in my professional career."
