Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka says he wasn't interested in joining other clubs after manager Arsene Wenger made contact to sign him.
The former Borussia Monchengladbach star became the club's first summer signing after joining for a reported £35million on a long-term contract.
He made his debut against the MLS Stars and also featured in Arsenal's 3-1 win against Chivas Guadalajara.
"I personally never had contact with [Jurgen] Klopp or Liverpool," Xhaka told the Daily Mail.
"A while ago, I spoke to Arsene Wenger.
"But this club fits to me and I fit to it. Arsenal play attractive football and I enjoy that. I think you could see against the MLS side that this team has a lot of quality and we'll give our all to show that on the pitch.
"It's a really nice feeling to play for such a great and big club for the first time. I really enjoyed it and I think it showed on the pitch that I've been welcomed really well, that I have the trust of my team-mates.
"I'm really pleased to have finally played my first game."
