It has been reported that Dinamo Moscow chief Konstantin Sarsania admits Arsenal were keen on Aleksandr Kokorin.
Sarsania says the Gunners were interested in landing the Russia international.
“I don’t know where Kokorin will continue his career,” Sarsania said. “There was interest on the part of Arsenal, but now there is not.”
Arsenal have already completed one signing this month, with Basel midfielder Mohamed Elneny joining for £5m.
