Arsenal targets Gourcuff

Gourcuff Arsenal London manager Arsene Wenger is currently looking at the option of buying Yoann Gourcuff from French site Lyon.

The Gunners were previously interested in Schalke’s 04 midfielder Julian Draxler but apparently the clubs haven’t agreed on the transfer as Wenger now turned his attention forwards the French player.

It’s still unknown how much Arsenal would need to pay to secure the signing of the 27-year-old midfielder. Lyon is not in the best financial situation recently and after PSG and Monaco made big investments the club can’t really seriously challenge for the Ligue 1 title anymore.

Gourcuff is in pretty good form this season. He played in 13 league games for Lyon scoring 3 goals.
