Calciomercato – as reported by The Daily Telegraph – are claiming that the Gunners have failed in a bid to lure the 22-year-old Gabon international to Emirates Stadium in recent days.

The same report states that Arsenal’s offer was fell below Juventus’ €20m (£17.3m) valuation of the player, and that Schalke are also interested in the midfielder.

The Gunners have been linked with a host of players in recent days as the end of the summer transfer window draws ever nearer.
