Karim Benzema will not be joining Arsenal this summer and will instead remain at Real Madrid, according to his agent.
Benzema has been a reported long-term target for the Gunners, with differing reports suggesting the Frenchman was set for a move to the Emirates Stadium.
But his agent, Karim Djaziri, has confirmed Benzema has no intention of leaving the Santiago Bernabeu.
“Karim is very happy at Real Madrid and he will be a Real Madrid player by the end of this transfer window, 1,000 per cent,” he said.
“Karim is not looking to move anywhere this summer.”[post_ad]
