Players who almost joined Arsenal 10


10. Zlatan ibrahimovic

Arsene Wenger is known for his shrewdness, especially when it comes to handling the club's finances. He is known for signing young players for cheap rates and making them world-class players before selling them for huge amounts. So it is obvious that Arsene Wenger would have failed to pursuit his interest on many players because their clubs wanted more money than the actual value of the players. Here in this list, let us see ten players who almost joined Arsenal before deciding to join some other club.

Well, this may come in as a surprise to many, but yeah! Arsenal almost signed Ibrahimovic when he was a 19-year-old kid. In the year 2000, Arsene Wenger identified the talent in Ibrahimovic and wanted him to join him at Arsenal. He gave the opportunity for Zlatan to join one of the world-class clubs by inviting him for a trail. But the reply he got from Zlatan shook the world. Ibrahimovic announced that, "Zlatan doesn’t do auditions.” What an attitude even as a 19-year-old. A legendary sportsman with admirable attitude was in the making!
