Kevin Anin has confirmed that Arsenal made an approach to sign him.

The Sochaux midfielder has recently courted controversy in France after failing to turn-up for training with his current club, prompting speculation that the player was attempting to force through a move to England, with Tottenham Hotspur also thought to be interested.

However, the player has revealed that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger made the move for his services, but that the interest was not concrete and appears to be over.

"There was an enquiry [from Arsenal], it went away and in the end there was nothing concrete," the 25-year-old told L'Equipe.

The player enjoyed a trial spell with Spurs back in 2009, but aimed to further his personal experiences with a move back to Ligue 1.


Anin spent four years with Le Havre, where he developed as a junior, before moving to the Stade Auguste Bonal in 2010.

He's one of a number of midfielders thought to be on the Arsenal radar, with Yann M'Vila and Blaise Matuidi also thought to be potential targets for the Emirates outfit.

Time appears to be ticking for Arsenal to make a move though, and with less than a week remaining in the transfer window, Anin now appears to be out of the question.
