Lucho Gonzalez has reignited speculation over a January move to the Premier League after his agent revealed the Marseille playmaker is available in January.

Gonzalez had previously ruled out a move away from the Stade Velodrome but the Argentine has recently found himself out of favour under manager Didier Deschamps and has once again fueled speculation over a move in the next transfer window.

The attacking midfielder was linked with Arsenal in the summer as Arsene Wenger looked for a replacement for Cesc Fabregas following his move to Barcelona.

Arsenal tried to sign the Argentine playmaker on loan, but the deal fell through and Gonzalez remained at the Stade Velodrome.

But the player's agent, Federico Simonian, told 10 Sport that the 30-year-old is available and interested in a move away from France.

"He wants to leave," said Simonian. "He wants to play in a championship that is better than Ligue 1."

Earlier this month, Gonzalez told reporters he would relish the chance to play abroad.

"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."

However, Wenger could face a challenge to sign Gonzalez after Simonian revealed he was the subject of serious interest from Roma and Fiorentina.

"Lucho and I want the transfer, and I think Marseille do, too," Federico Simonian told

"Lucho wants to play in a better league than Ligue 1: Serie A, La Liga and Premier League are examples of those leagues.

"Roma and Fiorentina are two possibilities, we are working on a permanent transfer, but it could also be a loan. In Italy, we work with [agent] Tullio Tinti: next week we will meet with him to talk and I think in the next couple of weeks the situation could be more clear."
