Chelsea Striker wants to get one thing straight – he has never been close to joining Arsenal.
Remy was spotted watching Arsenal at the Emirates last season sparking talk that long-term admirer Arsene Wenger was about to finally land his man.
His appearance was an innocent one, according to Remy, as he was invited by former Gunner Bacary Sagna.
Wenger finally made a dramatic last ditch late bid for Remy just before he joined Chelsea.
“Arsenal, I think they were talking with my agent a few years ago but they never wanted to sign me really because if they wanted they would have signed me a long time ago.
“When Chelsea came it was very good. They told me I can really enjoy being in this team, I can win titles.
“I spoke to the manager in Chelsea and he really wanted to sign me. I never spoke, for example with Wenger.
“He never took his phone and called me so the choice was quick.”
