Arsenal have been warned off a bid for Germany's World Cup hero Mario Gotze by Bayern Munich's sporting director Matthias Sammer.

Gotze has fallen out of favour with Munich boss Pep Guardiola and was linked with a move away from the Allianz this summer. Reports suggested the Gunners were favourites to sign the 23-year-old.

However Sammer has moved to quash any suggestion of departure, and was quoted in Bild as saying: "Can we agree on one thing: We let Mario now just play football.

He enjoys our confidence, but now let the boy just once in peace! It will not be better if we talk about it constantly.

"If you want to win something big, you need just these players. Dealing with them is even more important than with those who play. "


In other news, the Gunners have been put on high alert after it was revealed Zlatan Ibrahimovich will be allowed to leave Paris St Germaine this summer.

It has been highly publicised that Arsenal are looking for a striker this summer and the 34-year-old may fit the bill perfectly.

Manchester United are also reportedly interested, however neither side have made a move for the Swedish international.

Ibrahimovich has one year left on his current deal in France, however he will be able to leave the club in a cut priced deal.


And finally, Alexis Sanchez has been making headlines for his off the field actions.

The Chilean has sent trucks full of water and first aid supplies to help the areas most severely affected by the torrential storms in Chile.

Sanchez has never forgotten his roots and often remains in contact with friends and family from back home. 

Fernando San Román, mayor of Tocopilla, confirmed the guesture, saying: "He hasn't forgotten about his land and that's why he wanted to be involved.
