Antoinne Greizmann has revealed Arsenal tried to sign him in the past on more than one occasion.
The French international has developed into one of the finest footballers in European football and every Gooner would want to see him play for our club.
The chances of that happening are currently slim to none after Arsenal blew their chance of signing him in the past.
Speaking in a recent interview, Greizmann said Arsenal tried to sign him on two separate occasions. However, it is the first time that would hinder our chances of signing him, after we left him disappointed when we refused to follow up our interest.
After the first blow he suffered, he was quick to turn down Arsenal when we came calling the second time.
Speaking in a recent interview, Just Arsenal reports Greizmann said:
“I waited,” he said. “I waited, and I kept waiting … when there was no news, Eric called Grimandi, who said that the manager was still interested in me [and] to keep waiting.
“Finally a few hours before the market closed, he let us know Arsenal would not make a move. ‘I don’t like to be told something and for it not to happen. ‘So when Eric told me later that the London club were interested again I told him “Forget it, after the blow they gave us.”
So it looks like our chance of ever signing Greizmann in the future has been blown by that single act.
The French international can now be added to the long list of top class players who the Gunners have missed out on under the stewardship of Arsene Wenger.
