Former Black Stars forward, Kevin-Prince Boateng has revealed that Arsenal could have been one of the numerous clubs he played for.
The former Barcelona player said he was scouted and offered to Arsenal at the age of 17 but his Mother and brother blocked the move.
Boateng said his family cited his young age as their reason to reject the offer for him to join the Premier League.
““Back in the day when I was 17, I could have joined Arsenal. This guy came to talk to me but my mom and brothers were like no. I stayed in Berlin.”
“I was playing for the German u-18 and this guy came to me that he is an Arsenal scout and that Arsenal were interested but my mom and brothers were like its too early,” he said on Vibes on 5 podcast.
4 years after rejecting Arsenal, Kevin-Prince Boateng joined Tottenham Hotspurs in July 2008.
