AZ Alkmaar striker Mounir El Hamdaoui says he is flattered by reports linking him with a summer switch to either Liverpool or Arsenal . The Dutch-Moroccan front-man spent two years at Tottenham Hotspur frm 2004-06 without making a league appearance, and spent a short loan spell at Derby County before joining Willem II. However, the 24-year-old has exploded on to the Eredivise scene in 2008/09, scoring 22 league goals to help AZ seal a second Dutch title. The Moroccan international's performances this season are now believed to interesting both Liverpool and Arsenal, who may attempt to bring El Hamdaoui back to the Premier League at the end of the season. And his agent, Ron Ravel, admits the striker is flattered by the interest, but denies there has been any discussions with either side. "I am aware of the rumours about Liverpool and Arsenal, but I have not heard anything," he told skysports.com. "Mounir is flattered to be linked with both Arsenal and Liverpool. It is interesting for any player to be linked with two such big clubs. "Mounir has had a very good season and I believe there is also interest from Spain. "He is under contract at AZ until 2012 and he is happy there with the club playing in the Champions League next season."
