Transfer News: Flavio Ferraria, Johan Djourou’s agent, has insisted that his client will not be leaving the club in January.

The 25-year-old has been linked with a move away from the club with Roma and Napoli linked after failing to play a single minute of Premier League football so far this season.

He told calciomercato.it: “There has been absolutely no contact with Roma and I don’t know where these rumours have come from.

“I met Johan recently, but we did not talk about Roma because there’s really nothing to say.

“There is no real possibility that he will leave Arsenal as he is contracted to them until 2015. However, we will evaluate the current situation in January.

“Obviously he would like to play in Italy because we have discussed this several times before, but he hasn’t a preference for any specific club.

“I think he would do very well at Roma because he is young and versatile and the most important thing is that he wants to play with continuity.”
