The rumour linking Arsenal with Benfica midfielder Javi Garcia has been ruled out by the player’s agent.
Garcia was reportedly a target for Arsenal with Manchester United also thought to be interested in the former Real Madrid player.
However, Garcia’s agent, Manuel Garcia Quilon said: “The only interest from Arsenal in the player is what I have seen in the Portuguese press.
“I can guarantee I have not had any contact with any club about a possible departure from Benfica.
“Javi is happy at the club and he is very happy to stay in Lisbon.”
Arsenal have been linked to a number of midfield players recently including Esteban Granero and Sebastian Giovinco.
