BREAKING: Arsenal didn’t sign Liverpool star because he was ‘too nonchalant’

According to reports, Arsenal could have signed Virgil Van Dijk, when Dutch international was a Celtic player.

Gunners had suggested 12 m for Van Dijk, and the move was close to happen.

However, Steve Rowley, Arsenal’s chief scout at that time, thought Virgil was ‘too nonchalant’ and refused to sign him.

This is one of the worst decisions ever made by Arsenal, as they could have had one of the best defenders, who currently plays for their rivals.

Van Dijk has become the most expensive center back when moving to Liverpool from Southampton.

He is already a candidate for PFA player of the season award.
