Paris Saint-Germain star Zlatan Ibrahimovic has denied claims that Premier League outfit Arsenal were interested in his signature this summer. 

As reported by, Ibrahimovic, who has been speaking in a press conference with the Swedish national side, has admitted that his former team AC Milan were interested in signing him, but claims he's happy in Paris with PSG. 

The future of Ibrahimovic was the subject of much debate throughout the course of the transfer window, with the duo of Manchester United and Inter Milan also linked with moves.

It's uncertain as to whether the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United were genuinely interested in the 33-year-old, but it certainly appears that AC Milan were ready to bring him back to Italy's elite division. 

When asked about the interest of AC Milan, Ibrahimovic responded by saying: “It was concrete from their side.

Summer interest 

“A lot of interest but I said from the beginning that I will stay with PSG. I like it, we have a good team, my family feel good and it's just positive with Paris and PSG. But they wanted, they wanted much.”

Ibrahimovic was then asked about interest from Premier League outfit Arsenal, where he claimed: “No, so the interest that existed, I have not committed myself to.

“It is Mino [Raiola] who takes care of the pieces. When I give notice that I want something to happen I get involved. But this summer I have been resting up, I enjoyed the holiday, but I know that Milan were a bit desperate.”

Too late

Let's be honest, it now appears to be more certain than ever that Ibrahimovic won't be plying his trade in the Premier League. 

Ultimately, having enjoyed stints in Spain, Italy and France, it's certainly a shame that the Swedish star has failed to move to England throughout the course of his career, but he will go down as one of the most enigmatic and exciting strikers to have played the game. 

There's no doubt about it, Ibrahimovic is a legend in his own right, and still has something to give before the end of his career.
