Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has no interest in bringing France international Yoann Gourcuff to the Emirates Stadium.
The Bordeaux star, who has also been linked with Lyon, is admired by Wenger although the Gunners boss is happy with his current midfield options.
Wenger told Telefoot: "We are not interested (in Gourcuff) and we were never contacted. He's a player I like a lot, but we are sufficiently covered in midfield."
Gourcuff was part of the Les Bleus squad that performed so pitifully in the World Cup finals in South Africa last month.
He started the game against Uruguay and the tournament hosts, although he was sent off against South Africa, as Raymond Domenech's side failed to progress from the group stages.
The ex-Rennes and AC Milan player has featured in 81 games for Bordeaux in the last two seasons, finding the net 21 times.
