Tunisia playmaker Youssef Msakni has claimed that he rejected Arsenal in order to move to Qatar.

The 21-year-old was linked with the Gunners as well as Paris Saint-Germain and Lille.

“I wanted to play in Qatar, the opportunity was given to me and I took it,” he told Sky Sports.

“Lille were interested and wanted me but they did not show the willingness to have me in their club like the Qataris.

“I am looking forward to impressing in that league. Arsenal were also keen but not enough for me to choose them, maybe one day I will be in a very big league in Europe.”
