French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche understands that Arsenal have been presented with an opportunity to sign Lyon midfielder Yoann Gourcuff.
The France international has been offered to a host of clubs in England, including Arsenal, but also sides from Spain and Turkey.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been keeping close tabs on the midfielder for a quite a while now and could decide to make a bid in the January transfer window.
Lyon officials need to sell a couple of star players in order to balance the books and they appear to be ready to cash in on Gourcuff.
Gourcuff, 26, was regarded as one of world’s best midfielders when he arrived at Stade Gerland in a €22 million deal from Bordeaux, but has utterly failed to prove his worth at Lyon.
Numerous injuries also halted the player’s progress, and he only managed to make 46 Ligue 1 appearances for les Gones since joining the club in 2010.
