Schalke defender Benedikt Howedes has claimed that Arsenal have made an offer for him this summer, but that he has snubbed interest from the Gunners to remain with his current club.

The German international, part of their World Cup-winning squad from last summer, has established himself as one of the most solid defensive players in the Bundesliga in recent times.

Manchester United and AC Milan have also shown an interest in his services, but it now looks as though he has his heart set on remaining with Schalke instead, according to the London Evening Standard.

“Milan and Arsenal have really been keen on my services, this is what I am able to confirm,” he said.

“Still I have not opted against them, I have decided in favour of Schalke. My job is not done here yet.”
