Marseille midfielder Lucho Gonzalez has revealed that Arsenal were interested in his services this summer.

The veteran Argentine was heavily linked with a move away from the Ligue 1 side this summer, with Malaga and Roma also thought to be keen on the player.

However, the Gunners now appear to have been chasing the 30-year-old strongest in the summer window, although Arsene Wenger eventually took his search elsewhere.

The player himself admitted his excitement at the possibility of an Arsenal switch, but excepts that the possibility of a move to the Emirates is now likely to be gone because of his age.

"I did not want to go, but an opportunity to play for Arsenal appeared and that interest should make any player proud, especially when one is reaching his 30s," he told La Nacion.

"An agreement was not reached because they wanted a younger player whom they could later sell and they went after that kind of player."

Areteta is younger isnt he? Also, they gave him a 4 year deal, I would expect that within that deal he will be sold on to somewhere in spain
