Johan Djourou's agent has dismissed reports the Arsenal defender is set to join Serie A giants Roma in the January transfer window.

The Switzerland international has not yet played a minute of Premier League action this season and the 25-year-old has slipped down the defensive pecking order at the Emirates.

Djourou had previously been linked with a move to Napoli over the summer, but Gunners boss Arsene Wenger kept hold of him due to his versatility.

Agent Flavio Ferraria insists Djourou's future remains at Arsenal and has denied any contact from Italy.

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."

isse should have appealed and explained that it was just a retaliation, just like Matic did. Apparently the FA are ok with retaliation.
