Yaya Toure : “Wenger Tried To Convert Me Into A Striker”

We all know that Yaya Toure once had trial with Arsenal before joining Barcelona. Toure revealed that Wenger wanted him to be striker during the trail period.

In his recent interview, Yaya Toure said,

“When I was in Belgium, I went to Arsenal for a couple of months to give me some training and I remember my first chat I had with Arsene.

“He asked me, ‘Which position do you want to play?’

“I said, ‘Midfielder’.

“He said: ‘Why? When I saw you training, for me, you looked more like a striker.’”
