Yoan Gouffran: The winger was diagnosed with a bizarre grass allergy in 2010 which his boss Jean Tigana called 'embarrassing'
Bordeaux are braced for a bidding frenzy after confirming they would listen to any offers for the highly-rated winger Yoan Gouffran.
The 26-year-old caught the eye of a number of clubs around Europe with his 14 goals in an impressive season with the French side last time out.
Aston Villa, Everton, Newcastle and Sunderland have all been linked with the forward in recent weeks.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger tried to sign him after he was part of Caen's successful promotion push to the French top-flight and was named as Ligue 2 Player of the Year.
The winger, though, chose to remain in France and eventually signed a five- year contract at Bordeaux in 2008.
But the Frenchman has yet to sign an extension and as he is able to leave for nothing next summer when his contract runs out Bordeaux are eager to cash in on their prize asset.
