Barcelona vice-president Ferran Soriano has dismised talk of Samuel Eto’o joining Arsenal following Thierry Henry’s move to the Nou Camp.

Soriano says Eto’o will be staying, despite being linked with a move to several Premiership clubs as well as Champions League winners’ Milan.

“He wants to stay and we want him to stay,” Soriano told BBC Five Live.

“If things go right we will have him playing with Thierry Henry next season. Definitely, he is going to be staying.”

There has also been speculation that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger could follow Henry to Barcelona and replace current coach Frank Rijkaard.

But Soriano said: “You never know in the future but not now. We have a coach, Frank Rijkaard, and we are very happy with him. We hope he will stay with us for many more years.”
