Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s agent has quashed rumours that his client will be heading to north London this summer, after incredible reports suggested a move to Arsenal might be on the cards.

The 33-year-old, who fired home 19 goals on his side way to their retention of the Ligue 1 title, has been linked with a move away from the Paris based team.

Having played in Italy and Spain, a move to the Premier League would mean Ibrahimovic will have competed in at least three out of four of Europe's biggest leagues by the time he retires.

Cheap option

A combination of both the striker's advanced age and dip in goal-scoring form mean he could become available for as little as £11m, according to rumour.

However the Swede's agent, Mino Raiola, has dispelled rumours linking him with a summer switch away from the Parc des Princes and believes that PSG have no intentions of selling their main man.

Agent quotes

"He has a contract and cannot just decide to leave by himself," Raiola told Journal du Dimanche, as relayed by talkSPORT.

"[PSG] president Nasser Al-Khelaifi was asked about this and said no, PSG will not sell Ibrahimovic.”

Ibrahimovic produced his worst goal-scoring season yet last term, scoring seven goals fewer than last year and 11 fewer than the 2012/13 campaign.

Having played for Barcelona, Ajax, AC Millan, Juventus and Inter Milan the maverick forward is coming towards the end of a stellar career in football. He has won 10 league titles and the FIFA Puskas award in his 16-year stay at the top of the footballing pyramid.
