Arsenal and Southampton target Grzegorz Krychowiak has refused to completely rule out a summer move to the Premier League although he admits he is very happy at Sevilla.

Earlier in June, The Times reported that Gunners manager Arsene Wenger was considering a move to sign the Poland international as an alternative to his first choice midfielder, Morgan Schneiderlin.

Meanwhile, Spanish newspaper ABC later claimed Southampton have also made a bid to secure his services as manager Ronald Koeman is preparing for life without France international Schneiderlin.

But Sevilla president Pepe Castro warned them that should they want to lure the midfielder away from the Andalucian side, they would have to pay his full €30m (£21.7m, $33.5m) release clause, with him recently proving himself to be the leader of the Europa League winners in his first campaign in La Liga.

The club's sporting director, Monchi, told AS that Sevilla are more than confident they can keep him away from the Premier League rumours as the player is fully committed to their long-term plans.

"Krychowiak is a guy who has very clear his plans and his interest to leave Sevilla at this moment is zero," said Monchi.

But the midfielder has been even more enigmatic when addressing his future during an interview with Estadio Deportivo, claiming he is more than happy at Sevilla, while suggesting "in football" anything can happen.

Asked whether he would like to move to the Premier League, the Poland international said: "Rumours are for journalists not for the players. I'm at Sevilla and I am proud to play in Seville."

"England? I do not know, in football you can't talk about the future. But please do not misunderstand me because I do not want this to be understand like a disrespectful respond to the club or the fans, who I respect a lot. Many players are kissing the badge of the club one Monday and the following day they sign a contract with another club; others, however, claim that they are going to stay in a club for year and eventually become into a legend of the club 10 years later.

"As I said before, I'm very happy and 100% at Sevilla, focused on resting ahead of the Spanish Super Cup against Barcelona.

"Sevilla are a great club. Everyone, from the boss to the dressing room and the fans, who are the best supporters in Spain. It is a pleasure for me to be here because the city is also great: the people, the weather, the architecture... everything is perfect."
