The Argentine has been linked with a move back to the Premier League after some sta performances for his side who are on top of the Championship table.
According to Football.london, Arsenal are looking for a creative force in their midfield and have identified the player as one of their targets but according to Farke, the club was not worried about the speculations since the player was happy at Carrow Road.
"He is our player. He is on a long-term contract. He is happy here. I am not worried about speculation," Farke said after their win against Barnsley on Saturday.
The former Getafe man has scored seven goals and registered seven assists so far this term, proving to be a key figure in Farke's side; an outing that has alerted many clubs.
The 24-year-old is valued at around £20million by Norwich a sum that is affordable for a club like Arsenal; the club looking for alternatives after missing out on Lyon ace Houssem Aouar last summer.
