Reports had suggested the Ivory Coast international, who joined the North Londoners in 2011, could rejoin his former club Lille or move to Turkish outfit Fenerbache.

"There is always speculation in the papers, but I am looking forward to a good holiday and then to come back to Arsenal,” he said.

"I want to win my place in the starting line-up week in, week out."
