Gonalons has been scouted by the Premier League side extensively over the past two seasons, and was heavily linked with a move to the Emirates last summer.

However, he decided to stay with Lyon in the end, though reports are already linking him to leave the Ligue 1 high flyers at the end of the current campaign with Arsenal once again favourites for his signature.

It is believed that Arsene Wenger has personally sought him out, citing his desire to finally add a no nonsense holding midfielder to his squad.

But Arsenal may also face competition from the likes of Spurs and Napoli – both of whom have also been credited with an interest in his services.
