“It would be nice to move to Arsenal,” he said.

“But at this moment such decisions can only be made by Southampton and that is where my concentration as a player is.”

The Kenya international has been a regular feature for Saints boss Ronald Koeman this term, featuring 34 times in all competitions, managing to find the net on three occasions.

Apart from the midfielder, Gunners manager Arsene Wenger is also linked with a move for his teammate, Morgan Schneiderlin.

Schneiderlin has been a long term target for Wenger, but he faces tough competition from Manchester United, who are now said to be in pole position to acquire the services of the France international.
