Ligue 1 side Bordeaux have revealed they are ready to listen to offers for star striker Yoan Gouffran.
Gouffran, 26, has set his sights on leaving les Girondins after spending last four and a half years at the club and has rejected a contract extension from Bordeaux.
The French giants are now prepared to cash in on their prized asset, but club president Jean-Louis Triaud admits that the player’s desire to move to English Premier League is limiting his options.
“He was offered an extension, but this did not seem to please him”, Triaud told French radio station Radio Monte Carlo.
“In order to consider his departure, it is necessary to have offers or contacts. He is thinking. He is on the lookout.
“His only potential choice is England and this limits the possibilities. In June he had an offer from Reading, he refused it, it makes sense.”
Yoan Gouffran joined Bordeaux in a €6.5 million deal from Caen and didn’t need a lot of time to establish himself as a first team regular at Stade Chaban-Delmas.
He has scored a total of 31 goals in 139 Ligue 1 appearances for les Girondins despite being rarely used as a centre forward.
Gouffran has been in fine form this term, netting 8 times in 19 Ligue 1 matches.
