Inter Milan join Arsenal in race to sign Lyon midfielder

Published Add your comment

Arsenal have been joined by Inter Milan in the race to sign highly-rated Lyon star Maxime Gonalons, reports talKSPORT.

The 24-year-old midfielder has been the subject of intense transfer speculation in recent months, with suggestions that he'll leave Stade de Gerland at the end of the current campaign.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is understood to be a long-term admirer of Gonalons - who commanded a £14million bid from Serie 'A' outfit Napoli during the January window - and is ready to make an offer to bring him to the Emirates Stadium this summer.

However, Arsenal will face stiff competition for the France international's signature from Inter, who - under the stewardship of new president Erick Thohir - are ready to break the bank to bring the player to the San Siro.

Gonalons remains under contract with Lyon until 2016, but an offer in excess of what was on the table in January could convince the Ligue 1 club to sell at the end of 2013/14.
