Wolfsburg eager to keep Arsenal, Barcelona target Luiz Gustavo

Wolfsburg insist they want to retain the services of star midfielder Luiz Gustavo.

The 26-year old Brazilian, who joined die Wolfe from Bayern Munich last summer, has been linked with Arsenal as well as Barcelona in recent times.

Despite signing a five-year deal with Wolfsburg, Gustavo has suggested he would love to play for the Gunners while also welcoming interest from Barca.

But Wolfsburg general manager Klaus Allofs is not looking to offload the former Hoffenheim ace anytime soon.

"We are very happy to have Luiz Gustavo," Allofs told Kicker-Sportmagazin.

"He is a regular first-team player and he is also an important player for the team.

"He has a long-term deal at our club. Of course, he is a Brazil international player and we know there could be a lot of changes to this if he is going to play a pivotal role at the World Cup."
