Cristiano Ronaldo would have been an Arsenal player if Wenger’s attempt to bring the then 17 year-old Sporting Lisbon player to Highbury

Arsene Wenger spotted Ronaldo but was hijacked by former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson and the Frenchman says that was his biggest regret

''My biggest regret, I was so close, to signing Cristiano Ronaldo, and not only did I not get him he signed for Manchester United, so that of course still hurts today.’’

Wenger also shocked the world when he disclosed who his greatest signing was

''I’d never say which player was the best, but I think it’s the signings like Lauren who you spot when nobody else does.

''He was a right midfielder who I played at right back and was one of the invincibles.’’

Meanwhile, Arsenal is reportedly chasing two free agents to cover up for its defensive woes

According to the Mirror, Wenger is looking at bringing former Nigerian international Joseph Yobo and Uruguay captain Diego Lugano who both were released by their clubs Fenerbahce and West Brom in the summer
