Loïc Perrin: “There were serious contacts with Arsenal.”

Speaking to our colleagues at But!, St Étienne captain Loïc Perrin looked back on his January transfer window and talks with Arsenal.

He had the following to say:

“There were serious contacts via my agent. I think I was on a shortlist but not at the very top apparently. A transfer in this window, it is difficult. But it is difficult to refuse Arsenal. I have always said that if I have to leave St Étienne, one day, it would be for a bigger club, a club that plays Champions League. A club like Arsenal, I don’t think many Ligue 1 players would refuse.”
