Gonzalez was heavily linked with a move to Arsenal in the summer, but a loan deal for the 30-year-old was rejected by the French club. The Argentina international has also been previously linked with Everton and Serie A sides Roma and Fiorentina.

"You'll have to ask Marseille why he wasn't allowed to leave in August," Gonzalez's representative Federico Simonian told The Sun.

"Like every player he wants to make progress. He wants to be transferred to the Italian, Spanish or English leagues. Of course, he will be transferred to a team that deserves and appreciates him."
