Richarlison opens up on snubbing Arsenal

Speaking to FourFourTwo, Tottenham striker Richarlison explained: "Antonio Conte called me during the transfer negotiations and expressed how much he'd like to have me on board — that was vital for my decision.

"I know Chelsea made an offer, and I believe Arsenal also contacted Everton to ask about my situation, but Spurs came in and paid the fee, you know? It's as simple as that."

Willian opens up on Arsenal exit

Willian, who left Arsenal after terminating his contract at the Emirates ahead of the 2021/22 season, has lifted the lid on his conversation with Mikel Arteta.

The Brazilian said: "On my last day, I spoke with Mikel. I thanked him for what he had done for me. He is a good manager and I have great respect for Arsenal. They are doing well, they can achieve good things this season."

Arteta's international break plans

Mikel Arteta wants to spend some time with his family while also keeping an eye on Arsenal training during the two-week international break.

The Spaniard said: "Personal plans? I want to spend some time with my kids. Whether that will be in London or away and look after the boys that are here because we have quite a few. We need to look after them as well because some of them are injured and start to prepare."

Richarlison from what I just read did not snub Arsenal. Arsenal didn't even bid for him. The only club that wanted him so badly got him.
