EPL: Samuel Umtiti Debunks Move To Arsenal

Barcelona defender, Samuel Umtiti, has debunked the claim that he had a meeting with English Premier League side, Arsenal.

There were speculations that the 25-year-old France international could make a move away from Camp Nuo after slipping down the first eleven.

A further report claimed that the France player was moving to Premier League, with Arsenal said to be leading the chase for Umtiti.

Umtiti, however, claims that a new challenge at Emirates Stadium is not something that he ever considered.

“Honestly, I don’t know where this rumour with Arsenal came from.”

“Overnight, I received messages from my friends ‘ah, so you are joining Arsenal?’ I’m not, I’m sorry but I’m staying at Barcelona.”

“Contacts with Arsenal? To be honest, I don’t know if they had conversations with my agent, I just told him that I didn’t care what was happening this summer and that it wasn’t even necessary to talk to me about it.”

“It was useless, I was going to have the same answer.”

“My dream as a child is to play for Barcelona. Last season was the most difficult of my career, especially in terms of injuries,” he told Canal Football Club.
