Arsenal's Johan Djourou set for Italian move, says agent

The representative of the Gunners' defender has revealed that Serie A is the player's most likely destination, having expressed his desire to leave the Emirates

Johan Djourou is set to leave Arsenal for a move to an Italian club, according to his agent.

The 25-year-old signed a new contract with the Gunners in February, extending his existing deal to 2015, however, after making only 14 Premier League appearances last season, he has recently admitted that he would consider a switch elsewhere.

The Swiss international's representative, Flavio Ferraria, has revealed that he and the defender will speak to a number of clubs in Italy next week, although he also added that a move to Spain is also an option.

"Can [Johan] Djourou join Napoli? It's certainly possible, especially as we will be in Italy next week for a series of appointments," Ferraria told Italian radio station Radio Crc.

"At the moment Napoli are not on the list of appointments, but everything is possible.

"If he leaves the Premier League, then he will play in Italy or Spain.

"I saw my client the other day and he was enthusiastic about both Napoli and Italy in general.

"So far we have received an offer worth €10 million [£8.1m], but it is up for negotiation.

"He wants to play for one of the top five Italian clubs."
