It has been reported that Arsenal have received a boost in their pursuit of Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira.
It was said that the Gunners’ move for the Germany international appeared under threat after reports emerged of Bayern Munich making a rival offer.
However when asked about the Khedira rumours, Bayern supremo Karl-Heinz Rummenigge insisted: “It’s a myth.”
Arsenal received a boost in negotiations for Khedira after the Germany international agreed to climbdown over his initial £150,000-a-week wage demands.
Last week, Arsenal attacker Lukas Podolski said: “Sami knows how much fun he would have with me, Mesut Özil and Per Mertesacker at Arsenal. We had a great time at the World Cup.”
