Yoann Gourcuff Welcomes Wenger Interest

Olympique Lyon and France international Yoann Gourcuff says he is honoured by Arsene Wenger's highly reported interest in his services.

According to Skysports the 25-year-old former Bordeaux playmaker has spoken of his appreciation towards the kind gesture, but it is left to be seen whether he will don the colours of the Arsenal next year.

Wenger has never hidden his admiration for talent, and the attacking midfielder's comment suggest he is in tandem with his fellow country-man: "I am happy that Wenger has thought about me.

We are talking about one of the best managers in the world. He likes technical players, so I am glad that he is interested in me," Gourcuff enthused.
