Arsenal are being given mixed messages in their pursuit of Spanish striker Adrian as the Atletico Madrid man stalls on the offer of a new contract at the Vicente Calderon.
Adrian, who joined Atletico from Deportivo La Coruna last summer, enjoyed a breakthrough season last term, with his stunning form culminating in senior international recognition last month.
The 24-year-old played a prominent role in Atletico's march to Europa League success last season, and Atletico are keen to reward him for his exploits.
And speaking to Spanish newspaper Marca, Adrian expressed his happiness at the club.
"I am very happy," he said. "In my first year we have a title, something that you would expect, and I felt very comfortable with the people in the club. The support of the fans is amazing. I have three years and my idea is to follow."
However, according to Marca, Atletico fear the striker could be tempted elsewhere as he has failed to respond to the club's offer to improve his wages and extend his current contract to 2015.
Bayern Munich and Arsenal are thought to be monitoring Adrian, with Arsene Wenger holding strong interest in the £14.5m-rated forward's availability.
Although Wenger has already brought in attacking reinforcements in the form of Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud, speculation still surrounds the future of Gunners captain Robin Van Persie, who has been linked with moves to Manchester City and Juventus.
