Real Madrid attacker Vinicius Junior happy he turned down Arsenal

Real Madrid attacker Vinicius Junior is happy he turned down Arsenal last summer.

Marca says Vinicius Jr was being eyed by Arsenal and PSG during the summer transfer window.

He has struggled for game time this season, with the 19-year-old making just eight La Liga appearances so far.

Yet the forward is still happy he didn't make the move to north London when the transfer window was open.

Vinicius reportedly feels that a move to a 'small club' wouldn't have helped him.

And he has ruled out a move to Arsenal in the January transfer window, with the teenager instead keen to challenge Eden Hazard on the flanks in the Spanish capital.
