thumbnail Hello,

The 18-year-old made four appearances in all for Paris Saint-Germain before moving to the Italian giants and says he rejected offers from London and Merseyside

Kingsley Coman claims he rejected offers from Arsenal and Liverpool before joining Juventus.

Coman completed his move to Italy from Paris Saint-Germain earlier this week, signing a five-year deal with the Serie A champions.

And the 18-year-old claims he had a number of offers from England – as well as Germany and France – before he eventually opted to move to Antonio Conte's side.

“Juventus has a history with French players,” he told L'Equipe. “Some of them did very good. So I told myself, why not me? I thought about it a lot. I had to take a decision regarding PSG.

“Then there was Arsenal, Liverpool, Leverkusen, Bayern Munich and Bordeaux. I've hesitated a lot about Bordeaux and I talked with Willy Sagnol, I knew him from French U21 and he promised me playtime.

“But this process came a little too late. I was already thinking about Juve.”

Coman made his PSG debut aged 16 – which saw him become the club's youngest ever player – and went on to make four appearances in all for the French giants.
