Arsenal fringe star linked with a move to Serie A

In rumours coming from abroad, Arsenals Johan Djourou has been linked with a move to the Italian side Napoli

The Defender is not considered first choice at the Emirates and at the age of 25, he needs to play more games to continue fulfilling his potential.

The Switzerland internationals only appearance this season was in a Capital One cup game, and it seems that he is not part of Arsene Wengers first team plans, so speculation is rife that Napoli are preparing a bid in January for the Gunners star.

There has been no formal contact between the club and player, though there are rumours circulating that the Seria A side are extremely interested in adding the versatile defender to their squad and would like to acquire his service this transfer window.

However, it is clear that Djourou wants to stay and fight for his place at the club where he has been playing since 2004, which means he may delay a move of any kind until he is certain that his Arsenal career is at an end and he is no longer wanted by the club.

Napoli are a rising force in Italian football and a move could be good for the player’s career.
