Reported Arsenal transfer target Nolito has revealed that he received an offer to join an English club during the January transfer window.

The Celta Vigo striker was touted as a possible target for the north London club in the winter transfer window as Arsene Wenger considered bolstering his attacking options at Emirates Stadium.

However, a transfer to England failed to materialise for the striker, who also said that he had offers from China, Russia and Dubai.

Speaking to Radio Marca, Nolito said: “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.”

Arsenal are expected to be busy in the summer transfer window as Wenger looks to bolster his squad ahead of the 2016-17 season.
