Inter Milan striker Martin Satriano has admitted he is flattered by reported interest from Arsenal and Chelsea but is focused on his career in Italy.
The 20-year-old Uruguayan striker moved to the San Siro in 2020 from South America, with Inter winning a fiercely-contested race for his services.
Interest from the Premier League has reportedly continued though, with the Gunners looking to bolster their attacking ranks.
However, while Satriano has ruled-out a move to England in the future, the young forward is focused on breaking his way into Antonio Conte’s side.
“It is always flattering (the interest from the Premier League). Yes, it is a sign that I am doing things well and that I have to continue down that path,” he told the Mail.
“I try to use it as an incentive to keep working and be better every day. The Premier League is the No.1 league in the world in terms of competition, that I think all the players want to play, I think all the teams are very good.
“It is a very competitive league where any team can beat anyone. But for now I am totally focused on Inter and to do the best with them.”

Satriano is yet to make his Serie A debut for Inter but has been part of the matchday squad on a number of occasions and is tipped to make an appearance before the end of the campaign.
At under-19 level, Satriano has made quite an impression after scoring five goals in his last four appearances, including a brace against AC Milan.
The young forward has netted six goals in just nine appearances at youth level and is tipped to become a star in the coming years.
