Wonderkid set to snub Arsenal due to lack of trophies

Arsenal have seemingly ruled themselves out of landing a player due to their lack of trophies.


The player in question is Gent striker, Gift Obran.

Obran, 20, joined the Belgian outfit in the January transfer window and has had a superb start to life at his current club.

The forward has scored 20 and assisted two in 20 outings for Gent so far.

Such impressive form has caught the eye of several clubs, but one club who will not be signing the Nigerian is Arsenal.

Speaking about his future recently, Obran said:

“I dream about the Premier League and about Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool,” Orban told Het Nieuwsblad.

“I don’t really care much for Arsenal, though. They do not like winning trophies. It was like that for 10 years when Arsene Wenger was in charge. They only signed players to then sell them at a profit. I want to play for a club that competes for trophies.”

It is easy to see why some Arsenal fans may take offence to these comments given Obran lists Manchester United as a club he would like to play for despite them winning one trophy in six years, which is the same number as Arsenal.
