Chelsea striker Loic Remy has revealed that his agent was previously in contact with Arsenal, reports the Daily Star.
The former QPR forward - who moved to Stamford Bridge in the summer - has insisted, however, that Arsenal weren't in contact with him over a move to the Emirates this time around after previously speaking with his agent a couple of years ago.
Remy has also revealed that he never spoke with Wenger over a possible move to north London, and is now determined to succeed at Stamford Bridge under Jose Mourinho.
The forward said: "Arsenal, I think they were talking with my agent a few years ago but they never wanted to sign me really because if they wanted they would have signed me a long time ago."
"When Chelsea came it was very good. They told me I can really enjoy being in this team, I can win titles.
"I spoke to the manager in Chelsea and he really wanted to sign me. I never spoke, for example with Wenger.
"He never took his phone and called me so the choice was quick."
For now, then, Remy's immediate attention will turn to Chelsea's clash with Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge this afternoon. The forward could be in line for his first start in England's elite division at Stamford Bridge, and will be hoping to keep the team at the top of the table.
The striker could get the nod in Mourinho's starting XI ahead of Diego Costa or he could play out in a wide left-role for the Blues this afternoon.
Mourinho's side have made a fine start to the campaign, having secured 13 points from their opening five games. Villa, meanwhile, are just three points behind the Blues after a fine start themselves.
