Arsenal’s €40m Bid For Roma Player Rejected
Category : News
AS Roma has rejected Arsenal’s €40m bid for Kostas Manolas, his agent confirmed.
Kostas Manolas’ agent has revealed that Roma rejected Arsenal’s approach in signing the centre-back last summer. The Gunners were interested in bringing the defender to the Emirates and made a bid of nearly €40m.
“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,” Loannis Evangelopoulos the player’s representative told Sport FM, as quoted by Goal.com.
The 25-year-old has played a key role in helping Giallorossi sit second in the table, four points behind leaders Juventus. Roma boast the second best defence in the Serie A after conceding 18 goals so far this season, four more than the Old Lady.
