It seems that even though the summer transfer window has just closed the media are still intent on linking players with a whole range of different clubs. In the spotlight today is Bordeaux midfielder, Yoan Gouffran. The player is reportedly available for £3 million and is on the wish list of sides such as Fulham, Everton and Aston Villa who are all reported to be taking a keen interest.
Gouffran, 26, is out of contract next summer and the French club would rather sell him cheaply than let him leave for nothing next summer. The striker, has already revealed that he is interested in moving to the Premier League in the future despite insisting that he is committed to the Ligue 1 outfit.
“Today, I am completely focused on Bordeaux,” he said in L’Equipe. “Of course, I have friends in England, and it is a league that attracts me.
“I am attracted to play abroad and I can’t see myself joining another French club. Meanwhile, I am doing my job the best I can. There will be no conflict with Bordeaux, I won’t start any trial of strength. If I have to stay there will be no trouble.’
The club however, look resigned to the fact they will lose star forward Yoan Gouffran after the player declined to sign an extension with the club. This in turn has led Bordeaux to listen to offers in an effort to cash in on their talented scorer.
Arsenal and Newcastle United are also among the interested parties.
