Howedes plays down talk of Arsenal move.


Benedikt Howedes has distanced himself from a move to Arsenal this summer but claimed he could be interested at some point in the future. The German has been linked to the Gunners this past week, with boss Arsene Wenger keen on bringing in a replacement for Thomas Vermaelen, who has moved to Barcelona.

But even though there IS a release clause in the player’s contract, the Schalke man claims he is not considering leaving the club this month. He said:

“There will always be rumours, especially when you have won the World Cup. I have not directly heard from those clubs, but my management does not tell me everything anyway.

“Currently, I don’t get too busy with it. I know that I have responsibilities here.”

However, Howedes went on to admit that when the time is right, he would consider a move abroad. He added:

“If I did not love Schalke, I would not have been here for 13 years now. But I have also said that it would be tempting to play abroad one day and learn a new language, have a different surrounding and settle at a new club.

“I leave it open for now when this will be. It does not have to happen now, and also not next year.”
