Arsene Wenger has revealed he tried to sign Jadon Sancho from Manchester City when he was Arsenal manager.

However, the former Arsenal boss missed out on Sancho who joined Dortmund from Manchester City in August 2017, for a fee reported to be in the region of £8m
Wenger told beIN Sports: “I wanted to take him from Man City when he didn’t get the games.
“I tried to lure him because he’s from London. I tried to get him to Arsenal. He’s one of the best players of his generation. He can dribble, he has the arrogance.
“There’s something in there that is part of the big players. You can call it arrogance, confidence, belief; but it has to be there.”
