Ferraria opens door for Arsenal defender exit

The agent of versatile Arsenal defender Johan Djourou admits his client could be sent out on loan in January, reports Sky Sports.

The 25-year-old Swiss international was heavily linked with a move away from north London in the summer, and now speculation has suggested he might be a target for Serie A side Napoli, when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.

"At the moment there is no negotiation with Napoli," confirmed Djourou's agent, Flavio Ferraria, in an interview with Radio Crc. "In football anything is possible, but there has been no contact with them for now.

"I agree that Djourou would be a useful addition for Napoli, but only in January when we find out whether Arsenal want to keep him or send him out on loan."

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has used Djourou sparingly in 2012/13, featuring twice in the Capital One Cup, without having played a single minute in the Premier League so far this season.

His future at the Emirates Stadium might appear bleak, but Ferraria insisted that his client will continue to keep his head down, and work hard, in a bid to get back into first-team contention.


"Johan is a professional and so far this season he has played just two games in the League Cup," he added. "He wants to play more.

"He is fit, but things can go like this sometimes. Maybe in a few weeks Djourou will be a regular for Arsenal."

The Gunners return to domestic action with an away trip to Carrow Road on Saturday, where they face Norwich City in the Premier League.
