Real Madrid star Karim Benzema’s agent says that his client is not interested in a move to Arsenal in the summer, despite reports to the contrary.
Benzema has been strongly linked to a move to Arsenal, with the France international scoring 21 goals in 27 appearances for Real Madrid. The Metro have rated the star at £25 million, and he was widely believed to have agreed to a deal already.
Should the 23-year-old not be guaranteed playing time next season with Madrid, numerous forms of media were suggesting that he might make the switch to the Barclays Premier League, with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger the front runner for the star’s signature.
But Benzema’s agent Karim Djaziri has said that his client is very happy at Real Madrid, and hasn’t even requested to be put in contact with Arsenal, or any other club, for a possible move.
"At no moment has Benzema thought about leaving Real Madrid,” Djaziri said.
"He has not asked me to negotiate with any club. Karim only wants to continue at Madrid and build on his recent good performances."
