Arsenal reportedly see a bid in the region of £19m for Lars Bender turn down by Bayer Leverksuen.
Bayer Leverkusen have reportedly rejected an offer from Arsenal for midfielder Lars Bender.
The Gunners have long been linked with the German international and are reported to have bid around £19m for his services.
However, Bayer have turned down that financial package and have further insisted that the 24-year-old is not for sale at any price, according to Express.de.
It is believed that following the departures of Dani Carvajal to Real Madrid and Andre Schurrle to Chelsea, Leverkusen have no interest in losing any more of their key players.
