Reports in Italy had suggested that a deal to take the France international to Italy was close, with Lyon prepared to sell in order to free up funds.

The 24-year-old holding midfielder has, however, always maintained that he is not looking for a move.

He has played down talk of a switch to Arsenal and has now moved to bring an end to the Serie A switch rumours.

Gonalons told Radio RMC: "The situation is clear. I'll stay in Lyon this year because I have to try and learn many things. I want to win with Lyon.

"I have been approached and it's always nice to know that big European clubs are following me, but I understand that the club want to keep me.

"That is good news because it shows that they have big faith in me."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
