Hoffenheim playmaker Nadiem Amiri has played down reports that he will be leaving the Bundesliga club in the summer.

The German Under 21 international is said to be in the sights of Arsenal, Tottenham and RB Leipzig, but he told German magazine Kicker (via, he is only focused on playing for his current club:

“There are many rumours. If you go after that, I would change to a different club every two months. I’m not looking that far into the future yet.”

“Other clubs currently do not matter to me. I feel well here and want to continue to be successful with TSG [Hoffenheim].”

Amiri reportedly has a release clause of just €17m (£15m); something that has no doubt brought him to the attention of the Gunners and Spurs.

Arsenal head scout Sven Mislintat is likely very aware of the attacking midfielder’s talents, but whether the Gunners will consider a move for the 21 year old, it is not certain.

Amiri generally plays in the number 10 role which is not a position that Arsene Wenger needs strengthening in at the moment, with both Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan at the club.

Still, the midfielder would certainly be one for the future if Arsenal do decide to trigger his buyout claue.
