QPR defender Rio Ferdinand has stated his intention to retire from professional football at the end of the season.
Several Football League clubs are tracking Aldershot Town and England C international Jordan Roberts.
The Germany international, who arrived last summer, has been linked with Juventus and Atletico Madrid but insists he will not be moving away from the Emirates Stadium.
"I want to say two things," he said. "Firstly, I cannot help it that clubs are interested in me. And there are always people behind the scenes who want to float something in this business.
"Secondly, any interest makes me proud because it is a recognition of my performance in London. It is unlikely [that I will leave] because, at the club and in the town, I feel really comfortable.
"As a player you have peace and quiet. I appreciate that very much. Therefore, I can honestly say: I am not preparing for any change."
