Arsenal Transfer News: Star Reveals “Interest Shown By Arsene Wenger”

By on October 4, 2011

Lyon’s attacking midfielder Johan Gourcuff was targeted by Arsenal this summer, as Arsene Wenger looked to reinforce his midfield line after the departures of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri. Arsenal were unsuccesful in their attempt to persuade the 25 year-old Frenchman to leave the Ligue 1 side, but there is some hope of a future attempt at his signing.

Gourcuff told of his delight that Wenger had showed an interest in him this summer, but thanks to an ankle injury, he has not had the chance to prove his worth so far this season. He said:

“I am flattered by the interest shown by Arsene Wenger. He is one of the top coaches in the world, he loves technical players so I am very, very happy to know that he was interested in me.”

“Now I am pushing to come back stronger for Lyon.”
