Jakub Kiwior’s agent has named three clubs that wanted to beat Arsenal to January transfer.

Jakub Kiwior became the Gunners second signing of the January winter transfer window and it was one of the most secretive deals that caught even the media unawares.

However, some clubs made attempts to hijack the deal, a development that would have hurt the Gunners.

‘All the important Italian clubs other than Inter Milan showed interest, including Napoli, AC Milan and Juventus,’ Sasha Baranov told TV Play.

‘However, with Napoli’s current situation, they didn’t need to change their team in January and wanted to continue talks in the summer.

‘You all know what happened at Juventus, while Milan also waited, and you know what happens when the Premier League clubs come in.

‘When a side like Arsenal come along, it becomes difficult for a 22-year-old to say no. If it was Juventus or another big club coming in, it may well have been the same situation, but Arsenal are the only side who really pushed the talks forward.

‘We honestly didn’t expect it to all move so fast, we thought he would stay in January and leave Spezia in June.

‘Arsenal came in and the player did not put pressure on his club, he just said that if the move was to happen, then good, otherwise he was happy to wait.’
