Marseille midfielder Lucho Gonzalez has refused to be drawn on speculation linking him with a January move to Arsenal.

Gonzalez, 30, was linked with a move to 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 midfielder has struggled to hold down a regular starting place under Marseille coach Didier Deschamps, leading to speculation he was considering his future at the club.

"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 his agent 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."
