Vivianne Miedema's agent, Leoni Blokhuis, has said the Netherlands striker will stay at Arsenal for the 2021-22 season.
A report in the Guardian on Wednesday said the Gunners were willing to do a swap deal with Lyon for Nikita Parris, but the Women's Super League record goalscorer's agent has said: "Vivianne will stay as it looks now and that will be at Arsenal next season."
Miedema was Arsenal's top goalscorer in the Women's Super League in 2020-21 with 18 goals, and she also registered five assists as the Gunners finished third securing a Champions League spot.
The Netherlands top goalscorer of all time was linked with a move to France as she is in the final year of her contract but her agent has been quick to shut down those rumours.
Miedema is currently the record WSL goalscorer with 60 goals in 67 games in the division.
