Hoffenheim head coach Julian Nagelsmann has played down reports linking him with a move to London giants Arsenal and Chelsea.
Nagelsmann has emerged as a possible replacement for Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, who announced on Friday that he would be quitting Arsenal after 22 years at the club at the end of the season.
There has also been continued uncertainty over the future of Chelsea chief Antonio Conte, with the Blues failing to replicate their Premier League title-winning success – although they did reach the FA cup final on Sunday after beating Southampton.
However, when asked about potentially moving to the Premier League, Nagelsmann told Sky Germany: “I don’t think so, no. These are just rumours.
“I focus on myself and my team the focus is on nothing else.”

After finishing fourth last season and qualifying for the Champions League, Nagelsmann’s Hoffenheim are back in the European spots once again this year.
“I’m not annoyed by the discussions,” Nagelsmann added.
“I focus on myself and my team and want to make a good game here today.”
But Germany international Serge Gnabry, who has played under both Wenger and Nagelsmann in his career, believes that latter is good enough to make the switch.
“For sure you can say he [Nagelsmann] is one of the best,” Gnabry added.
“He’s mainly the reason why I came here. I felt with him I could improve and learn a lot.
“There were a lot of tactical aspects to his style which I wanted to add to my game so I´m even stronger in the future.”
