Arsenal transfer target, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa has revealed that Arsenal tried to sign him over the summer. The Montpellier defender wanted to move to AC Milan instead, but the move never materialised.
The France international told L’Equipe:
“Arsenal tried to sign me, but I had my attention elsewhere,”
“Milan wanted me, but even though my president was ready to sell me, the deal didn’t go through in the end.”
“I was really disappointed about not joining Milan, but our president is the owner of the club and he must be respected.
“Milan made an offer but it was rejected. It was then I understood that it would be difficult for me to leave Montpellier.”
