Arsenal & Liverpool face new transfer competition for international playmaker & free agent

Posted by

Reports in France indicate that En Avant de Guingamp are set to join the hunt for free agent Yoann Gourcuff, who has been linked with a move to the Premier League.

The playmaker left his contract with Olympique Lyonnais at the end of the season, and with the new campaigns in England and France fast approaching, he is yet to find a new club.

There has been considerable interest in his services from both sides of the Channel.

In England, the likes of Olympique de Marseille are understood to be keen on his services according to BeInSport [via Le 10 Sport]. However, Montpellier Herault Sport Club coach Rolland Courbis has expressed overwhelming confidence that the attacking midfielder will be joining his outfit over the coming few months [RMC as per Le 10 Sport].

Stade Rennais are also tipped to be considering a move for the 29-year-old [Ouest-France].

However, there may yet be an approach from England, with both Arsenal and Liverpool understood to be considering moves for the former AC Milan star [TalkSPORT via the Liverpool Echo].
