Arsenal boss Wenger: I was offered Adriano
"The agreement was for a loan. Adriano has qualities we don't need. They wanted to give us a player but wanted one back in return.
"I won't say who it was. I didn't want to lose the player they requested. I didn't necessarily think Adriano would upset the balance of the squad.
"I have big faith in my squad and they've proved me right so far this season."
