In the recent summer transfer window the Gunners were linked to a number of players for number of positions including the Right back position replacement for Bacary Sagna as he had some doubts over his future at The Arsenal. Arsene Wenger did his best to try and land quality players including Juanfran from Atletico Madrid. But the Spain international has something interesting revealed about the Arsenal’s interest.
Juanfran has declared that he turned down the opportunity to join Arsenal who were interested in the player.
Sky Sports are reporting that Arsenal made a very good offer for Juanfran but the Spaniard refused to join the North London club citing the fact that he is very happy at Atletico Madrid and sees no point in leaving. Arsenal are currently in need for a Right Back as their main man Bacary Sagna has been given duties at the Center Back while Jenkinson has not been able to continue his performance with consistency.
The 28 year old has experience in the right wing back position which adds versatility to his game because it proves he can play further forward.
“It is true that I had an offer from Arsenal that any player would have liked to have accepted, But I am very happy here.” Juanfran said.
