Prolific Winger Says He Refused to Join Arsenal in the Summer.

Prolific Winger Says He Refused to Join Arsenal in the Summer.

According to reports from the Daily Star, Arsenal's attempt to sign a player in the summer was dealt a heavy blow all because the one involved turned down a move.

Ricardo Kishna was signed by Lazio during the last transfer window. He joined the Bianococelesti from Ajax for a £2.9 million fee and now that he has settled well at the Stadio Olimpico, he is letting us know that he was approached for a deal by Arsenal.

He said: “I had a good rapport with the Biancocelesti from the first moment.

“I was a fan of Serie A and Lazio were one of the most entertaining sides to watch. they had a fresh and enjoyable style of football, plus they scored lots of goals.

“When I met the Coach and director of sport in Brussels, they convinced me straight away.

“I thought this proposal was very important for me because I was looking for a club, but also people to work with who would satisfy me.

“They wanted me because I could cover any of the attacking positions. For Lazio I turned down sides like Juventus, Roma and Arsenal.”

The 20-year-old Dutch winger made a total of 40 appearances for Ajax, scoring seven goals and assisting thirteen in the process.

I bet you did not hear about Arsenal's interest in him when transfer activities were still on. The major talk of the period was 'Karim Benzema to Arsenal.' This goes a long way to show that many do not even know who Arsene Wenger actually wants to sign at a particular time. Majority of the news we get to hear and read about are false.
