Big three-year deal to be signed after President tells Arsenal they can sign up Frenchman

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas revealed that long-term Arsenal target Yohann Gourcuff is surplus-to-requirements.

The Frenchman has had a difficult season with the French giants and that has led to talk that the Gunners are planning to make a move.

And they have been given a boost after Aulus admitted he is no longer wanted.

“He’s a great player but he just couldn’t fit in,” Aulas was quoted on the Sky Sports website.

The Lyon president was talking the morning after Paris Saint Germain’s 2-1 win away at Montpellier erased their slim hopes of winning the Ligue 1 title with a game to spare.

“What would have been wonderful is if he could have proved with Lyon what a great player he is,” Aulas told French television on Sunday.

“This is not great news for him,” Aulas admitted. “But it stops here.”
