The Swiss centre-back started just 14 Premier League games for the Gunners last season and, as a result, recently admitted that he is considering his future at The Emirates this summer.
Despite signing a new contract in February, keeping him at the club until 2015, the 25-year-old has fallen behind Per Mertesacker, Thomas Vermaelen and Laurent Koscielny in the pecking order, and this seems unlikely to change, especially considering the partnership of the latter two defenders mentioned.
Ferraria was quoted on SkySports.com saying:
‘Can Djourou join Napoli? It’s certainly possible, especially as we will be in Italy next week for a series of appointments.
‘At the moment Napoli are not on the list of appointments, but everything is possible. If he leaves the Premier League, then he will play in Italy or Spain.’
‘I saw my client the other day and he was enthusiastic about both Napoli and Italy in general. So far we have received an offer worth €10m, but it is up for negotiation.
‘He wants to play for one of the top five Italian clubs.’
If he is ‘enthusiastic’ to leave Arsenal then I’m enthusiastic about it as well.
I really don’t rate Djourou and I think he has overstayed his welcome.
Ferraria says the club have received a €10 million (£8 million) offer for Djourou’s services; I think we should take it and run!
