Marseille tells Arsenal they can only have Lucho Gonzalez in straight sale

Olympique Marseille boss Didier Deschamps cannot rule out selling Lucho Gonzalez to Arsenal.

Following rumours of the Gunners' interest, Deschamps confirmed he had been approached by his countryman Arsene Wenger about the 30-year-old South American but insists the interest has been rebuffed.

"I talked to him and the one that really interests them is Lucho Gonzalez," Deschamps reportedly said at a press conference.

"Arsene Wenger believes that he is a great player who could be useful to his team even though he does not fit in with his recruitment policy (due to his age).

"He wanted him on loan but it was not acceptable to us, there are no negotiations."
