Arsenal Transfer News: Migliaccio – Wenger Not After Yoann Gourcuff

By on November 21, 2011

Arsenal have no interest in signing Lyon attacker Yoann Gourcuff, according to the players agent Alain Migliaccio.

The Gunners were thought to have made an approach for Gourcuff in the summer, only to be told he wasn’t for sale by Lyon, but reports over the weekend had suggested Arsene Wenger was lining up a £20m January move for the French playmaker.

However, the players representative Alain Migliaccio has claimed he has heard nothing from Wenger and the 25-year-old is concentrating on recovering from injury and not thinking about a move.

“Yoann is working to return as soon as possible to the field after an ankle injury,” Migliaccio told

“The rumours about the (Arsenal ) interest? At the moment he is only thinking about his recovery.

“Wenger is a dear friend of mine and I have never been asked about this player.”
