Arsenal have shunned an approach Atletico Madrid for Emmanuel Eboue.
The Spanish side made an approach via his agent Franjo Vranjkovic, who forwarded the offer on to The Gunners.
However, a response from Emirates Stadium was quick and definitive as they insisted they do not want to sell him.
Indeed Arsenal have told Vranjkovic that they want to extend the Ivorian's contract at the club.
"We received an official request from Atletico Madrid which was passed to Arsenal," Vranjkovic stated.
"I have the fax from director Ken Friar who wrote to me to say they are not interested in the offer.
"Then I received a call from Arsene Wenger, who invited me to go to England to start negotiations over a renewal.
"I see no possibility that the player will leave Arsenal."
