The Mexican international has been in scintillating form since his move to Bundesliga from Man Utd in summer. He has scored 11 goals in 14 league appearances for Leverkusen and has recently been linked with a move to the Gunners.
But Leverkusen sporting director Rudy Voller has quashed any chances of the Mexican moving back to Premier League.
The German said: “We’re not selling Chicharito to Arsenal or anyone else. He is not for sale.”
Voller explained his decision, “Chicharito has played a big part in our success so far, through his style of play, through his goals. That’s why we brought him here. In the first half of the season, everything has worked out fine.”
Despite the current stance, speculation continues to grow. Arsenal has reportedly been given a £25 million price tag if they want to secure a deal.
