Marseille midfielder Lucho Gonzalez has refused to rule out the possibility of a January move to Arsenal, reports talkSPORT.

The 30-year-old Argentine international was heavily linked with a move to north London in the summer, but primary negotiations failed to materialise.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger admitted he had been keen to take Gonzalez on loan, but never discussed the option to bring him to the Emirates Stadium permanently.

But, after failing to hold down a regular spot in the Marseille side, speculation has re-emerged about the player's future, and Gonzalez intimated he is prepared to move.

"Arsenal? It's a great club who we [Marseille] have already played twice in this season's Champions League," he told Portuguese newspaper Mais Futebol.

"I feel I will continue at Marseille because I have signed a contract here, but it all depends on the offers and Marseille's interest.

"If there is a good club that comes in for me then what will happen remains to be seen."

Arsenal have been linked with a host of midfielders in the January transfer window - but with previous interest in Gonzalez having already been confirmed, this transfer could be one of the more realistic options for the Gunners in the New Year.
