Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is reviving his interest in Lyon midfielder Yoann Gourcuff.

The attacking midfielder has long been a target for boss Arsene Wenger and the Frenchman hopes to take advantage of Lyon's financial plight, says the Daily Mail.

President Jean-Michel Aulas revealed last month they may have to let some of their star names leave.

"We’re planning to sell two or three players for a total of €30million," Aulas said. "If he (Gourcuff) returns to the highest level and he wants to go, then there could be a transfer."
