Karim Benzema does not appear to be distracted by the speculation surrounding his future at Real Madrid as the striker continues to be linked with a big-money transfer to Arsenal.

The Gunners are thought to be weighing up a bid for the France international as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his attacking options at Emirates Stadium.

Wenger has publicly denied that Arsenal are in the hunt for the 27-year-old forward, but his comments have not stopped the speculation from gathering pace in recent days.

However, the player himself appears to be ignoring the media reports about his future, if his latest post on social media is anything to go by.

Benzema shared the picture above on his personal Instagram account on Saturday morning and wrote: “Training/💪 #69500…”
