This long term Arsene favourite is apparently looking for a way out of Barcelona, at least that’s what his agent says.
The agent of Arsenal target Yaya Toure has hinted the player could seek a move if he remains on the bench at Barcelona.
The Ivory Coast midfielder, who is the brother of Gunners star Kolo, was a target for Arsene Wenger in the summer before he opted to stay at the Nou Camp.
However, he has struggled for action this season and Arsenal could go back in for him in January if the player is made available by the Spanish giants.
“Yaya would like to stay, he likes Barcelona, but at 25 years of age he cannot sit on the bench watching the others,” his agent Dimitri Seluk told Ona Radio.
“Those who seek him must talk with Barca. Juventus, for example, I understand they’re interested, along with another Italian club and an English one.” (eatsleepsport.com)
Many Arsenal fans see Yaya as the perfect man to fill the hole that youngster Denilson is ably filling at present, the role that Flamini excellently fulfilled before he treated the club with such contempt. The Ivorian is a class act and these comments from his representative seem to amount to a potential come and get me plea and it could be one that Arsene acts upon. Do Gunners fans see Toure as an essentially purchase if they are to challenge for honours?
