The Gunners are extremely keen on signing Celta Vigo ace Nolito, facing competition from Barcelona, but the Spanish international has said he will not be leaving the club in the New Year.
Nolito has been a star for Spain’s surprise package this term, who currently sit level at the top of La Liga alongside Barcelona and Real Madrid; the latter of which Celta clash with this weekend.
Quoted by Goal ahead of the tie, Nolito didn’t rule out a move away from Celta Vigo but expressed his desire to finish the season with his current employers.
“God will decide my future. I’m not leaving in January. I’m happy in Vigo,”
The news comes as a blow to the Arsenal fans in the smoking area, who strongly believed that the addition of Nolito would fire them to success in the Premier League; completing a deadly attacking trio alongside Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.
