Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema will not be joining Arsenal before the end of the transfer window, according to his agent.
The French forward has been linked with the Gunners in recent days as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his squad for the season.
And it was believed Los Blancos would be willing to part with Benzema should they succeed in their attempts to sign Luis Suarez from Liverpool.
But according to Karim Djaziri, the 25-year-old attacker, who signed from Lyon four years ago, will not be going anywhere.
Speaking to Le Journal du Dimanche, he said: “We can not fight against the rumours, but I assure you Karim will not go to Arsenal. There has never been any discussions and no contact has been established.”
