Lille director general Frederic Paquet has re-affirmed that Moussa Sow is not for sale during the winter transfer window despite reported interest from Arsenal and Tottenham.

Goal.com reports how the 25-year-old Senegalese star has attracted attention from a host of clubs around Europe after a series of scintillating performances in Ligue 1 over the past 12 months.

Sow scored 25 goals in 36 appearances last season, to help Lille to a domestic double, and the reigning French champions fought tooth and nail to keep their star striker in the summer.

TalkSPORT reported on Wednesday that both Arsenal and Tottenham had made enquiries about signing Sow, with a fee of £20million being touted.

Arsene Wenger and Harry Redknapp are both looking for goalscoring reinforcements during the transfer window, with a host of names linked with moves to White Hart Lane and the Emirates Stadium.

However, contrary to reports linking Spurs and Arsenal with Sow, Paquet revealed that the only offer Lille had received for the striker was from Turkish giants Fenerbahce.

"There has never been negotiations between Fenerbahce and LOSC. We received an offer from Fenerbahce yesterday, but we haven't responded," he told La Voix du Nord.

"No squad member will leave in January. I will be very clear: Moussa is not for sale, there's no negtiation with Fenerbahce."

Meanwhile, L'Equipe is reporting that Sow is not tempted by the prospect of a move to the Super Lig, and if he is allowed to leave, would prefer to test himself in the Barclays Premier League with the likes of Tottenham or Arsenal.
