Rome rejects Arsenal offer

The agent of Roma defender Kostas Manolas has claimed that Arsenal saw a £35million bid for him turned down in the summer.

“I cannot say where Kostas would like to play but it will be interesting to see which teams will come knocking for him,” Ioannis Evangelopoulos told Sport FM.

“Roma refused an almost €40m offer from Arsenal for Kostas in the summer. The Gunners were really interested but Roma’s demands exceeded what they were willing to pay.”
