The agent of Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has dismissed talk of a move to Arsenal.

Agent Karim Djaziri has told Le Journal du Dimanche it is a deal that will not happen.

Djaziri said: "We can't stop the rumours. But I tell you: Karim will not go to Arsenal. It's never been a question for him and no contact has been made.

"He will stay at Madrid. The probable arrival of Gareth Bale at Real Madrid doesn't threaten him at all. Cristiano Ronaldo and Bale will play on the wings and Karim in the centre."
