Speculation – Villa linked with Yoan Gouffran

Another random link or the truth, soon find out.

On footmercato we along with Sunderland are linked with one time Arsenal target Yoan Gouffran.

Under contract until June 2013 with Bordeaux striker Yoan Gouffran attracting interest from two English clubs according to the team. This is Aston Villa and Sunderland.

Arrived in Bordeaux in 2008 and after a difficult start to the club, Gouffran just completed a full season under the command of Francis Gillot with 14 goals in 34 Ligue 1 matches. His qualities of speed that characterizes his game are quite compatible with the Premier League especially as Jean-Louis Triaud has announced plans to degrease his staff of 31 players for next season. The question is at what price?

  1. 16 goals in 121 appearance in Ligue 1 is nothing to write home about.

  2. when he has played for France in the past, he has looked a class act

  3. U21’s even…..didnt he play in one of the U21 tournaments or some other Eurosport filler

  4. seen all this before with Makoon dont know how to spell his name still you know who I mean.. This is agents selling their player to the highest bidder looks good but is he? if hes midfield that’s one of the position needed, and if its Lambert choice that’s what hes here for. keep the news coming in Ian, the best one so far is Hutton you know he might go to the Blue noses they will have any shite now..

  5. An immediate area of concern for PL must be goalkeeper –
    Given has come in for some criticism for his performances in Poland, with Ireland
    albeit he still has 4 years of his contract left at 60k per week with us.

    We let Brad Guzan walk , re-enforcements will be required – Ben Foster ?

  6. He’s the Bizzaro world Yoann Gourcuff.

  7. “…has announced plans to degrease his staff” … They do things differently in France don’t they?

  8. Hes the french Stephan Irealnd

  9. 16 goals in 121 games, No thanks

    • 14 goals, 6 assists after moving up front. He has more than 16 goals in a 121 games. This is his first time being an actual true out and out starter, he was mainly used as a sub the last couple seasons starting half the games at most.

    His real stats. 6th in Ligue 1 this season, played more forward with 14 goals and 6 assists this season and where he’s much more a starter than the last few seasons.

  11. 6th in goal scoring charts.
