Arsenal have attracted the best of talents around the world and this is largely due to the club’s culture of giving opportunity to all the players.
However, Nigerian international and Wolfsburg striker Victor Osimhen has revealed that he rejected a move to Arsenal because he feels he will get more playing time at Wolfsburg.
The 18-year-old has joined the Bundesliga club from Ultimate Strikers Academy on a three-and-a-half-year deal worth £3million.
Osimhen, the CAF’s Youth Player of the Year in 2015, had been linked with a move to Arsenal after the world youth Championship.
But the teenager has revealed he rejected the Gunners as he feels he will have more playing time with Wolfsburg.
“There were many clubs that were interested in me,” Osimhen told German outlet Bild.
“But my choice was Wolfsburg because I think that my development opportunities are highest here.
“If I had gone to Arsenal, for example, I might not have found the route to the first team so quickly.
“I love football and I have worked hard to get where I am now.”
