Girondins De Bordeaux have distanced themselves from claims that Arsenal are on the verge of completing a move for their highly-rated midfielder Yoann Gourcuff.

The 23-year-old French international has been widely tipped as the man Arsene Wenger wants to bring in as a replacement for Cesc Fabregas should the Spaniard depart for Barcelona this summer, however, Bordeaux president Jean-Louis Triaud told L’Equipe magazine that he refuses to be drawn into such speculation;

“I’m not going to comment on anything from the English newspapers. Today, I have received no offer for Gourcuff or anybody else for that matter. We know what the English tabloids are like…

One day Fabregas was going to Barcelona, everything was done, and I just saw Wenger say that Fabregas will stay in London. I will not be drawn into this game.”
