Bayern Munich have told Arsenal not to bother making a bid to sign Mario Mandzukic this summer.

The Croatia international has been linked with a move to the Premier League in recent weeks, with Arsenal and Manchester United both touted as possible destinations for the striker.

It is simply amazing how much work he does for the team and how much running he does during a game

But Bayern’s sporting director Matthias Sammer has ruled out the possibility of the Bundesliga champions selling the 27-year-old at the end of the season.

“Nobody even has to bother making an approach for Mandzukic,” Sammer told Sky90.

“He is incredibly important to Bayern. I always affectionately say that he plays like an animal.

“It is simply amazing how much work he does for the team and how much running he does during a game.

“They always try to provoke him because he really hurts his opponents with his work-rate.”

Mandzukic has scored 17 goals and made four assists in 28 Bundesliga appearances this season.
