Schalke 04 midfielder Leon Goretzka has claimed that he is only focused on Germany's Confederations Cup campaign at present, amid reported interest from Arsenal.

Reports in England have suggested that the Gunners are set to make a £21m offer for the 22-year-old, who has one year remaining on his contract at the Bundesliga club.

Goretzka has started both of Germany's matches at the Confederations Cup in Russia so far, scoring in the 3-2 victory over Australia.

Speaking in Sochi, Goretzka is quoted by Sky Sports News as saying: "I do not want to say anything about the transfer rumours, I'm focusing on the Confederations Cup.

"I'm not going to give state-of-play updates, but if there are facts, I will announce them.

"I'm not the type to be impressed by newspaper reports, I know what my qualities are, but I will not build myself up."

Goretzka, who has won seven caps for Germany, joined Schalke from hometown club VfL Bochum in 2013.
