Arsenal this month.

The Gunners have been linked with the playmaker for some time, with stories circulating that previous bids have been made to bring him to the Premier League.

It has been suggested that Arsene Wenger may return with a fresh offer this month, as he looks to get his team’s Premier League campaign back on track.

However, Lyon’s chairman Jean-Michel Aulas has revealed that there has been no contact, and that the player will be staying put:

“Arsenal and Gourcuff? I don’t know about any offers,” he is quoted by The Metro via beIN Sport.

“I have never spoken with Arsenal.”

Gourcuff has struggled to live up to his potential with Lyon, following his £20m arrival in 2010.

This has led to rumours that the French club are willing to sell their man in the cheap, in a bid to reduce their wage bill.

Wenger is believed to be a long-term admirer of the 26-year-old, but he could face competition from Russian outfit Spartak Moscow.

Although he is technically gifted, Gourcuff has struggled with a series of injuries in recent years and has missed the majority of the current campaign with a knee problem.
