No bid for Arsenal target Kouyate says Anderlecht

Belgian club Anderlecht have insisted that no clubs have made an official offer for Cheikhou Kouyate.

The 22-year old Ivory Coast midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal in the past few days but Anderlecht boss Herman van Holsbeeck has made it clear that no club has bid for his services as of yet.

"There has been no bid for him," van Holsbeeck told Het Laatste Nieuws.

"We know some clubs have looked at him and he has been in the spotlight."

He added: "I don't see anybody leaving, but if he leaves it would be for a lot of money.

"But Kouyate cannot move to the Premier League because he has not played matches for Senegal."
