During an interview with beIN Sports, Willy Boly responded to a tweet asking Arsenal to sign him, saying “no, never” to the prospect of a move. The 29-year-old believes Wolverhampton Wanderers are in a better position currently and then clarified that he’d only consider joining the Gunners if every other player did the same.

Which club did Wolves sign Raul Jimenez from?

Boly said: “No, never. I don’t think. Arsenal is a very good team, everybody can notice that. But, on paper, we are not afraid of Arsenal. They are coming on Saturday (Wolves v Arsenal at Molineux), but I don’t think they are going to win very easily. So, I don’t have to go to Arsenal. Maybe, if all the team goes there, I will probably be there.”

The French defender joined Wolves from FC Porto for £10.8m in 2018 and has gone on to make 105 appearances in all competitions, scoring eight goals with three assists. Boly has been a regular when fit this season, making 27 appearances across the board and being on the winning team 15 times, drawing eight and losing only three.

He’s been linked with a move to Arsenal for the longest time but is expected to sign a new deal this summer, so his future looks to be at Wolves. Boly is in the last year of his deal and initially opened talks over a contract extension in October but a fibula injury pushed discussions back a number of months.

With Wolves sitting sixth in the Premier League table, one place and six points ahead of Arsenal, it’s easy to see why Boly wants to stay at Molineux.
