Barcelona midfielder Yaya Toure's agent hints at Arsenal summer switch

Barcelona midfielder Yaya Toure has been linked with a move to Arsenal this summer, according to the Ivorian's agent.

The Ivory Coast international's agent, Dimitri Seluk, admitted he couldn't rule out the possibility his client would be heading to the Emirates Stadium, with Gunners chief Arsene Wenger a keen admirer of the combative midfielder's abilities.

"Yaya [Toure] is happy at Barcelona and will only leave for a big project at a big club", Seluk told The People.

"But in England there are sides with great prestige and that could be decisive.

"Arsene Wenger knows Yaya, and I am convinced he could be a success with Arsenal."

The Catalans giant have made no secret of their desire to bring their youth product Cesc Fabregas back to the Nou Camp, but Wenger has consistently rebuffed any advances for his stellar performer and captain.

However, it remains to be seen whether Toure will play a part in persuading the Frenchman to part with his most prized asset.
