Yaya Toure will not move to Arsenal claims agent
Wednesday 10 June 2009
Barcelona midfielder Yaya Toure could move to England this summer, but his agent claims he will not be joining Arsenal.
Agent Dmitri Seluk says the Ivory Coast international is deeply unhappy with his current contract at the Camp Nou and could decide to leave the newly-crowned European champions.
However Arsenal, who were reported to be keen on teaming Toure up with brother Kolo at the Emirates Stadium, are not serious contenders for his signature, according to Seluk.
He said: "There are many teams interested in Toure.
"He will not go to Arsenal because he has better offers and nor will he go to Germany, but his future could be in Italy or in England.
Meanwhile, Espanyol goalkeeper Carlos Kameni has ended doubts about his future by signing a new four-year contract with the Barcelona-based club.
The 25-year-old Cameroon international had made noises that he was preparing to move on, but he now penned a deal running until the summer of 2013.
Sporting director, Ramon Planes, told the club’s official website: “We have arrived at an agreement for renewal and Kameni has told us that he is happy to stay at Espanyol.
“It is a good agreement for both parties and fits our philosophy well. We do not want negotiations to go on for too long.
