Arsenal Legend Martin Keown doesn’t believe the club will sign Paris Saint Germain’s striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic this summer.
The 34 year old has been in superb form for PSG this season, proving he is one of the best strikers in the world by scoring 42 goals in 46 games.
To the disappointment of the French club’s faithful, they won’t have the opportunity to watch the striker next season as the 34-year-old is reportedly interested in moving to England when his contract expires this summer. In England, Manchester United, Chelsea as well as Arsenal have been linked with a move to sign the striker and it is being reported that the 34-year-old favours a move to the Emirates hence Wenger has an edge over his rivals.
However, Martin Keown is one person that doesn’t think Arsenal will be able to sign the striker. Wenger reportedly turned down the opportunity to sign the striker as a 16 year old because of his attitude and Keown believes that attitude could still be a stumbling block to Wenger signing the striker this summer.
“No. I don’t see it happening,” Keown told the Daily Mail, via Squawka.
“He didn’t want to play for Arsenal back when he had a chance all those years ago and I don’t think Arsene Wenger would give him another chance now.
“I’m not even sure he’d want to come and play for Wenger. Of course he’s a fantastic player with so much pedigree but I don’t know whether his attitude would be right for the youngsters at the club and the money involved would be huge.”
