St Etienne captain Loic Perrin admits Arsenal regrets

St Etienne captain Loic Perrin has lifted the lid on past interest from Arsenal.

The veteran came close to moving to the Gunners three years ago.

He recalled: "If my contacts went to the end with Arsenal, I think I would have tried the experiment because it's one of the clubs that are hard to refuse.

"I always said that if I left Saint-Etienne, it was for a bigger club and to discover a club of another level. I never had the opportunity.

"I did not see myself leaving just to leave. I know what I have in Saint-Etienne, I know what this club represents."
