Speaking to Elf Voetbal, Kishna has revealed that other big clubs, including Arsenal, were interested in signing him but he chose Lazio because they made him feel wanted.

Kishna said, “To play for Lazio i said no to other clubs that really wanted me, like Roma, Juventus and Arsenal.”

“I’ve always been a fan of Serie A and with the Biancocelesti there was immediately a special feeling.”

I met the sporting director Tare and the coach Pioli in Brussels. Immediately they made me realise how much they wanted me at Lazio because I can play in all the roles in attack.”

Kishna has made eight appearances so far for Lazio, scoring once and providing one assist.
