Yoann Gourcuff

With Draxler rumors still going on, Arsenal are already looking elsewhere for an alternative in case if their pursuit for the German star fails. Yoann Gourcuff is the alternative we are talking about.

According to Daily Mail, Arsenal are interested in signing French playmaker Yoann Gourcuff from Lyon. Wenger is said to be a long-term admirer of the player as Gourcuff  was linked with Arsenal many times before.

Gourcuff’s career has been full of ups and downs, and Wenger likes these kind of struggling raw gems. Buy them cheap and make them classy players is one of Wenger’s specialty.

More over, Gourcuff will cost much cheaper than Draxler and the deal can be reached much easier too. This season, he is showing some glimpses of his old form, scoring 3 and assisting 5 in the French league. But the question is do Arsenal need another playmaker?
