- "I'm in the right place with the right people and feel really good about it," he added.
- The Gunners coach said he will only consider his future when he feels the time is ripe for him to seek a fresh challenge.
Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta says reports linking him with succeeding Xavi Hernandez as Barcelona manager are "totally untrue".
Xavi announced on Saturday that he would be stepping down from the role at the end of the season after a series of poor performances that has led to scrutiny of the former Barcelona iconic midfielder.
"Who, me? No. That is totally fake news," said Arteta, whose Arsenal contract runs until the summer of 2025.
He said the rumours lack basis and he remains committed to the Arsenal project.
Arteta added that he is happy to be part of the London club's journey to the top as they aim to bring back the glory days.
"What you read, I'm really upset about it. I couldn't believe it. It has no sources," Arteta said.
"I'm in the right place with the right people and feel really good about it.
"I'm embracing a beautiful journey with this club and there's still a lot to do. I have a strong relationship with the board," he added.
The Gunners coach said he will only consider his future when he feels the time is ripe for him to seek a fresh challenge.
"Things come in a natural way. When the time is right we will have those [contract] discussions and find the best way to deal with it," he said.
The Spaniard is regarded as one of the best upcoming coaches after turning the Gunners into a formidable force in English football.
Arteta never played a competitive game for Barcelona's first team and, after a loan spell at Paris St-Germain, the former midfielder went on to play for Rangers, Real Sociedad, Everton and Arsenal.
After retiring, he worked as a coach under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City before taking over as Gunners boss in December 2019.
He won the FA Cup with the north London club in 2020 and Arsenal finished second to Manchester City in the Premier League last season after being overtaken late in the title race.
The Gunners are third - five points behind leaders Liverpool - in the top flight going into Tuesday's game at Nottingham Forest.
They are also still in the Champions League and face Porto in the last 16.
"There is a lot to do here and we all share that ambition," added Arteta.
"We want more, we aren't satisfied and the club wants another push to go to another level. We have everyone on board to achieve it."
