Karim Benzema has no desire to leave Real Madrid despite reports of an offer from Arsenal, according to the striker's agent.

Benzema has only managed two goals this season and missed a clear chance against Tottenham in Tuesday's 1-1 Champions League draw at the Santiago Bernabeu.

"He signed a contract extension last month and has absolutely no intention of leaving the club."

Benzema missed four La Liga games with a hamstring injury but scored on his return to the side in last weekend's 2-1 win at Getafe.
