Arsene Wenger Reveals He Almost Signed Jadon Sancho

Former Arsenal Coach Arsene Wenger has revealed he tried to sign Jadon Sancho for the club.

18-year-old Sancho, has impressed this season at Bundesliga club Borrusia Dortmund since moving from Manchester City in 2017.

The teenager is now a regular in Borrusia Dortmund's squad, taking the place of Christian Pulisic with his fine performances every match.

Things could have been very different though with Wenger trying to take Sancho to Arsenal when it became clear he would be looking to leave the Etihad.

"I wanted to sign him from Man City when he wasn't getting games," Wenger said on beIN Sports.

"I tried to lure him because he is from London. I tried to get him to Arsenal.

"He is one of the best players of his generation. He can dribble, he has the arrogance. There is something in there that is part of the big players.

"You can call it confidence, belief, arrogance but it has to be there."

Wenger went on to suggest young players across the world pocket too much money before they have even made their name.

"The pressure on these young boys from an early age is very big.

"They get a lot of money before they have played games. It doesn't improve the hunger index.

"It is a test because they are rich before they play."
