Celta Vigo striker Nolito while speaking at Radio Marca, revealed that he had offers from an English club and also from China, Dubai and Russia for a potential transfer move in January.
“In December I had offers from England, China, Russia, Dubai.
“But I’m happy at Celta and I want to play at the Euros.
“The Celta president told me that he wouldn’t sell me. I said to him that’s just fine by me.”
It is no secret that Arsenal had been looking out for the player and this revelation states that the English club did try to approach the player for a potential move in January.
However, the striker is happy at Celta Vigo and wants to play in the Euros and further Celta president too will not be willing to sell the player.
On the other hand, Arsenal are looking to bolster their entire squad and hence are expected to be busy with many transfers this summer. They are currently in the third position in the run for the premier league title, eight points behind Leicester City after a 2-2 draw against Tottenham. Only time will tell if Wenger still has Nolito in his list of targets for the summer transfers and what will be result for the same.
