Arsenal transfer news: Bruno Guimaraes not focused on January move from Lyon with contract extension possible

By Marc Mayo

Arsenal target Bruno Guimaraes has insisted that he will not push for a January transfer away from Lyon.

Juventus, Everton and Newcastle are also said to be interested in the 24-year-old with his club demanding a fee of around £40million.

But Guimaraes will leave any transfer offers to his agent this month after impressing for Lyon and the Brazilian national team.

“It’s normal to be mentioned like this when you are an Olympic champion, have been called up for the national team and are performing well individually,” he told Globo Esporte via GFFN.

“But I don’t really like to think about it. I let my agent manage that.”

Lyon hold Guimaraes under contract to June 2024 and a renewal has not been ruled out by the player.

“There has been a change in management,” he added. “We talked about it briefly when [former sporting director] Juninho was at the club.

“When the time comes, we’ll talk about it again. The focus now is on moving up the league table and putting Lyon in the correct position.”
