Arsenal were linked with a whole host of strikers during the summer transfer window, but perhaps the one they came closest to signing was Aleksandr Kokorin.
Dynamo Moscow coach, Andrei Kobelev, has confirmed that he and his peers snubbed a loan offer from the Emirates Stadium as they believe their man is worth more than a temporary spell elsewhere.
“There were substantial discussions on Kokorin, but it did not happen,” he said.
“We vetoed a loan. I believe that Aleksandr deserves more than a loan.”
Kokorin is said to have a release clause worth £13million embedded in his contract, but it appears Arsene Wenger didn’t want to pay that much.
Elsewhere, David Ospina could be the subject of a January transfer window hunt, with a number of club’s keen to take advantage of his position as Petr Cech’s backup.
Reports claim the goalkeeper has already had offers from elsewhere, and that he might well look to move on given his reserve position.
Lastly, Arsene Wenger has admitted that he had doubts over whether or not Santi Cazorla could adapt to the physicality of the Premier League before he signed him in 2012.
The Spanish midfielder stands at just 5ft 6in tall and so his frame was a natural worry for Wenger given the rough and ready reputation of England’s top flight.
The Arsenal boss recently confirmed that he did indeed have his concerns over Cazorla, but that they had since been put to bed.
