Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has narrated how the Gunners missed out on one of the most exciting young players on the European scene.

England international Jadon Sancho has grown to become an important player for German Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund since he moved to the Signa Iduna Park from Premier League champions Manchester City at the start of last season.

His Borussia Dortmund form has attracted the interest of several European sides in the past few months.

Arsene Wenger spoke about him while he was on BeIN shortly before Jadon Sancho and his Borussia Dortmund side played Tottenham Hotspur in the last 16 of the Champions League.

The Frenchman said that he tried to lure the 18-year-old to Arsenal while he was not getting much playing time at Manchester City but Wenger was not able to achieve his aim.

£100m-rated Sancho left Manchester City at the start of last season to join Dortmund on a free transfer and he has been a hit at the German Bundesliga club since then.

Jadon Sancho has churned out impressive performances to propel Borussia Dortmund to the top of the German Bundesliga table.

He was unable to inspire his team to a positive result against Spurs in the first leg of the Champions League as they lost 3-0 to the North London giants.
