Ligue 1 club wanted German before Gunners switch.
PSG boss Laurent Blanc has confirmed the French club tried to sign Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid before the midfielder joined Arsenal.
Ozil, 23, signed for the Gunners in a club record £43.3m deal on transfer deadline day but there was speculation that mega-rich Ligue 1 outfit PSG were also keen on the playmaker.
Blanc has admitted he regrets not landing an additional midfielder this summer and says the club did bid for Ozil before his move to the Emirates Stadium.
“I regret that we did not sign an extra midfielder. The only bid made to my knowledge was for Özil,” Blanc said.
