Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has denied receiving any bids for reported Arsenal target Gonzalo Higuain.
The Argentine has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates this summer after his club announced their decision to sell him during the upcoming transfer window, as the club look to freshen up their attacking options after an underwhelming domestic campaign.
Reports last week suggested Arsene Wenger is ready to smash the club's record transfer with a €22 million bid to bring the Argentine international to the club, but neither the Gunners or the 25-year-old's other reported suitor Juventus haver tabled a bid, according to Perez.
When asked if the striker will be leaving the Bernabeu, Perez told Marca, "I have no idea. There has not been any offers received."
Although he has struggled to hold onto a starting place in Real Madrid's side this season, the former River Plate forward has found the back of the net with notable consistency. He fired 15 league goals in just his 18 starts which ensured clubs are still vying for his signature, despite being deemed surplus to requirements by Los Blancos.
Despite the respectable tallies amongst Arsenal's goal getters, the club remain consistently linked with a move for an established presence up front. The club's fourth placed finish ensures that they stay in the market for big European names, but the club will have to stave off the threat of Serie A champions Juventus.
Although the club have already secured a deal that will bring Athletic Bilbao forward Fernando Llorente to the club this summer, the Bianconeri remain in the market for a forward capable of getting the club back to the summit of European football.
Although blessed with and abundance of talent in other departments, the club remain light weight up front. Mirko Vucinic is the club's top scorer this season with ten goals, while the likes of Nicklas Bendtner, Nicolas Anelka and Vincenzo Iaquinta have failed to register a single goal all season.
