Maxime Gonalons says that he wants to stay at Lyon, amid rumoured interest from Arsenal.

Lyon midfielder Maxime Gonalons has played down speculation linking him with a move to Arsenal by confirming that he will stay in France this summer.

The 24-year-old, who also reportedly attracted the interest of Napoli, has been rumoured to be leaving the former Ligue 1 champions.

However, Gonalons has outlined his intentions to stay at Lyon in order to develop and win silverware.

"Things are clear. I'm going to stay at Lyon next season because I still have things to learn and things to prove," Gonalons told RMC.

"I want to win with Lyon. I have been approached this summer and it's always good to know that you're been followed by great clubs."

Gonalons has three years left on his current deal at Lyon.
