Tagliafico told El Mundo Deportivo: “I am enjoying life and football. We are privileged as footballers. Our work is something fascinating and something we love to do. I enjoy playing for the national team and my club. I can’t think of what’s coming, that’s disrespectful to my club.”

Besides Arsenal, Catalan giants Barcelona have also been linked with a move for the 26-year-old.

On Barcelona’s interest, the defender replied: “It’s great that they talk about me because that means things are going well. But I can only focus on the present. Friday we [Argentina] have to beat Venezuela and that’s what counts.”
