Newcastle eyeing Arsenal defender Johan Djourou

Newcastle have joined the race to sign out-of-favour Arsenal defender Johan Djourou in the January transfer window.

The 25-year-old has not yet played a minute of Premier League action this season and is considered fourth choice central defender behind Thomas Vermaelen, Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny.

Djourou, who is also being tracked by a host of top Serie A clubs including Napoli, was persuaded to stay by Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger over the summer due to the Swiss international’s versatility.

Despite the fact Djourou has three years to run on his current deal, his agent is expected to help him find a new club in January following his fall down the defensive pecking order.

It’s ok. If he’s loosing his form due to competition then he’l be released to find his way out. But he’s a good defender only that a player can loose his form and retain it. That’s understood.

Am I the only one still holding out hope that he will get some minutes at Defensive Midfield??

I think there will definitely come a time when he’s needed at CB. I hope this is all just agent waffle!!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
