Anderlecht defender Cheikhou Kouyate admits he spoke with Arsene Wenger last month about a move to Arsenal.
In the end, Kouyate chose to stay with Anderlecht after their Champions League qualification.
He said: "Qualifying for the Champions League was also very important for me, because without that I think I should have been in London where I had a good contact with Arsene Wenger and Arsenal."
