Hakan Calhanoglu's agent says that there there is no immediate need to leave Hamburger SV, despite interest from Arsenal.

The agent of Hamburger SV attacking midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu has insisted that his client is happy to remain at the German club for the rest of the season.

Calhanoglu has been attracting interest from the Premier League, with Arsenal in particular said to be keen on the Turkish international.

However, Bektas Demirtas said that Calhanoglu still has a lot to learn at Hamburg even if Arsenal come in for him in January.

"I am aware of an interest of Arsenal in the services of Hakan," he told Hamburger Morgenpost.

"I am expecting Arsenal to approach Hamburger in a more concrete way during this month or January.

"However, Hakan and Hamburger SV, it's a story of success. Our main ambition is that he is staying on with Hamburger SV to progress further as a player."

Calhanoglu has enjoyed a run in the Hamburg team in recent weeks in the absence of the injured Rafael van der Vaart.
