Arsenal Target Will Be Allowed To Leave Bordeaux This Summer

Bordeaux star could be a cheaper alternative to Cazorla.

Ligue 1 outfit Bordeaux have confirmed they are prepared to listen to offers for Arsenal target Yoan Gouffran.

The two-footed winger is wanted by a host of European clubs after netting 14 times for the French outfit last season, reports Sky Sports.

The Gunners are likely to face competition from Aston Villa, Everton, Newcastle and Sunderland for his signature.

Bordeaux are bracing themselves for a bidding war after reluctantly confirming their intention to cash in on the 26-year-old, who has just one-year left on his current deal and is refusing a contact extension at Chaban Delmas.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger tried to sign Gouffran after he was part of Caen’s successful promotion to Ligue 1 in the 2007/8 season and has kept tabs on the star ever since.

Wenger is desperate to sign Spanish playmaker Santi Cazorla but with Malaga holding out for £20 million for the Euro 2012 winner, Wenger could turn to his more affordable compatriot.
