Djourou told to quit. Bendtner and Vela in talks with other clubs

Arsenal defender Johan Djourou has been told by Switzerland manager Ottmar Hitzfeld that in order to be able to start for his country he must play regular football for his club.

He advised the defender to quit Arsenal and move to a different club to get more playing time in order to boost his chances to represent his country for World Cup 2014 qualifiers. Talking to RTS Sport he said:

“For Djourou, the question arises of a transfer.

“If he wants to be selected, he must have some game time in the club. This is not the case at Arsenal.”

Djourou only extended his contract at Arsenal in February 2012 but has hardly featured for the club, often filling in at right-back position filling in for Sagna.

Striker Carlos Vela who had an impressive season on loan at Real Sociedad is reportedly in talks with other clubs, as he looks to leave Arsenal where he has failed to get first team football. His agent reportedly said:

“There are several clubs interested in him because he had an exceptional year. All the clubs are important, because Carlos has shown the talent and strength he has.”

“Back to Arsenal could be an option, but I do not know if it’s ideal. (They) are one of the biggest clubs in the world, but Carlos wants to play. The decision will be made by Wenger.”

Another player who is looking to leave the club is Danish Striker, Nicklas Bendtner who said that he has received several offer but will decide on his future after Euros.

Bendtner who scored against Brazil said:

“Yes, I have talked to other clubs. I have told all the clubs that I want to wait until after Euro 2012. We have got plenty of time to sort out the future.”

German giants Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are reportedly interested in the Denmark international.
