Abou Diaby is ‘unhappy’ at Arsenal, according to agent Roger Boli who has urged Fenerbache to make a move for the midfielder.
The Turkish side have shown an interest in out of contract former Gunner and mercenary Mathieu Flamini, but Boli is quoted in the Turkish press as saying “Consider Diaby. He’s unhappy at Arsenal. If you like I could help.”
Quite what Diaby is unhappy about at Arsenal remains to be seen. The club have stood by him through a litany of injuries which stem from the shocking tackle by Sunderland’s Dan Smith, but last season was a total write-off for him. Arseblog News suspects that it’s agent talk in some respects but this is not the first time Diaby has been linked with a move away from the Emirates.
Last summer the club rejected a £10m offer from an unnamed Turkish side in the hope he’d be fit for the season ahead, but two surgeries and barely 90 minutes of playing time saw those hopes dashed.
Clearly a decision has to be made about his future this summer and while Arsene Wenger is a huge believer in Diaby’s ability as a footballer, his inability to play football very often may well be the deciding factor.
