Olympique Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas insists Yoann Gourcuff is not on his way to Arsenal.

Aulas previously claimed that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger tried to sign the France international in the summer and it is rumoured the Londoners are preparing another swoop for him during the current transfer window.

"The journalists writing that Gourcuff is on his way out are simply getting it wrong," said the president.

"He will be staying. I brought him here because I thought that with him in our ranks, we would have a side with added value, especially in the Champions League."
