Toure agent cools Arsenal talk

20 May 2010 09:55
The agent of Yaya Toure has dismissed suggestions that his client could be heading to Arsenal in a swap deal involving Barcelona target Cesc Fabregas. Fabregas is wanted by the Spanish champions in a deal which could be worth up to £40million to the Gunners should they decide to let their skipper return to his boyhood club. Ivory Coast international Toure could head in the opposite direction as a makeweight in any transfer. However, agent Dimitri Seluk has dismissed speculation that his client could be on his way to north London. The 27-year-old defensive midfielder and brother of former Gunners defender, Kolo, has been strongly linked to Arsenal in the past. "Toure is not Cesc and nor is he going to replace him," said Seluk. "He will not go to Arsenal."
