FC Copenhagen have reiterated their desire to keep Andreas Cornelius after he was watched by Arsenal, Tottenham and Stoke playing for Denmark. The 20-year-old front-man is attracting attention from a host of Premier League clubs and is believed to have been watched by scouts from Arsenal, Spurs adn Stoke during Denmark's 3-0 win over the Czech Republic on Friday, in which Cornelius scored his first international goal. "First of all, we are happy on Cornelius' behalf," stated sports director Carsten V. Jensen to "I am particularly happy how he handles the situation around him. It's not easy to keep your focus on your displays when you get a lot of attention." The Danish giants are hoping to qualify for the group stage of the Champions League after the summer and therefore the club have no plans to sell their talented striker. "Selling players is not in our plans," he added. "We are in a phase where both the side and individual players are making progress and the most important thing for us is to prepare the club for the challenges which hopefully will come."
