Reported Arsenal transfer target reveals January offer from England

Nolito reveals that he turned down a transfer to the Premier League in January

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.
