Naby Keita reveals he turned down a potential move to Arsenal despite a personal call from boss Arsene Wenger.

The Guinea midfielder left Austrian champions Red Bull Salzburg to join promoted German Bundesliga club RB Leipzig this summer having been the subject of serious interest from the Gunners.

Regarding the rumours linking him with Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool and Southampton, Keita said: “All those clubs got in touch with me about a move.

“Yet I chose Leipzig as they have great potential and I didn’t yet want to join a big Champions League club.

“Leipzig’s sporting director Ralf Rangnick has treated me like a son. He came to France in 2014 to sign me for Salzburg and I trust him entirely.”
