Oostende striker, Landry ‘Nany’ Dimata, has snubbed both Arsenal and West Ham in favour of a move to Bundesliga side Wolfsburg.

  • Dimata signed for Wolfsburg
  • West Ham and Arsenal reportedly snubbed
  • Wolfsburg pay £8m for striker despite Oostende signing him for £425k last August

According to German outlet, Bild, Dimata chose to shrug off rumoured interest from Arsenal and West Ham in order to move to Wolfsburg.

The striker only signed for Belgian side, Oostende, for £425k last summer, having never made an appearance for his boyhood club, Standard Liege, but was so impressive that the Bundesliga club are willing to pay £8m to bring the 19-year-old to Germany.

While it’s unclear whether Arsenal’s interest was genuine, he’s definitely likelier to get more game time at Wolfsburg.

Last season, Dimata scored 14 goals in 34 appearances for Oostende, as well as two for the Belgium u21s since last September, and 13 (nine assists) for the u19s before that.

He had three years left on his former deal before signing for Wolfsburg.
