Antoine Griezmann claimed Arsenal kept him “waiting” over a potential move in 2013 and that he would not consider a move to the Emirates in the future.
“I waited, I waited, and I kept waiting… when there was no news, Eric called Grimandi, who said that the manager was still interested in me [and] to keep waiting,” Griezmann wrote in his autobiography.
“Finally a few hours before the market closed, he let us know Arsenal would not make a move. I don’t like to be told something and for it not to happen.
“So when Eric told me later that the London club were interested again I told him: ‘Forget it, after the blow they gave us’.”
