The speculation continues between the Arsenal and one of Arsene Wenger’s all time wanted players and the French star. Its look like the French star has his heart set onto a move to The Gunners after Arsene Wenger signed the signing of the season in Ozil. Arsenal are currently playing free flowing football with a fantastic run of wins and any player in the world would like to join them at the moment.
The French play-maker Yoan Gourcuff is currently pocketing £90k-a-week. It’s not clear how substantial his pay-cut would be, but it does seem that Gourcuff isn’t too happy with the situation. It’s not that he won’t take a pay-cut. It’s just that he doesn’t want to take one if he has to play for Lyon. Check out these quotes from Aulas earlier this year:
“All that I know, if I understood correctly, is that he was ready to lower his salary to go to Arsenal, but that’s not the same thing [as taking a pay-cut to play for Lyon].”
One has to think whether Arsenal need a creative play maker in their current squad with having arguably the best midfield in the league? But one thing is for sure, his signing would end Abou Diaby’s career.
