Rumors have been spreading regarding Arsenal's and Liverpool's pursuit of Mamadou Sakho, but the 21-year-old Paris Saint-Germain defender is being quick to shoot them down.

"I am focused on PSG at the moment. I am reading nothing into the speculation," he said, according to Metro.co.uk.

The Daily Mail had reported earlier this week that Liverpool was looking to join the summer pursuit of Sakho. While Sakho told the Metro that in no way was he considering a move, he expressed an understanding that being a part of rumors comes with the territory.

"If I do well then clubs will look at me, but I plan to stay with PSG for a long time," he said.
