Report: Agent of Arsenal midfield target denies transfer claims

Grzegorz Krychowiak has been linked with a move to Arsenal in recent weeks.

The Mirror have reported recently that Krychowiak could be on his way out of Sevilla, with the La Liga club agreeing to sign ex-Porto man Lucho Gonzalez as his replacement, but TMW look to have denied any claims that he could be heading to Arsenal.

The English report indicates that the deal has made the 24-year-old defensive midfielder available on the transfer market, and Arsenal are one of the clubs said to be keen on signing him as a solution to the ongoing woes in the middle of the park.

The former Reims man only signed for Sevilla at the start of this campaign, and he has featured regularly, but with the signing of Gonzalez, the Gunners could look to move for the Polish international.

However, it appears as if Arsenal’s interest will be nothing more than a pipe-dream in the January transfer window, and will have to look elsewhere for midfield reinforcements. Krychowiak’s agent, Cesary Kucharski, has all but denied that the player will be leaving Sevilla in the transfer window, telling TMW that there is no possibility of a transfer.

He said: “Is there a possibility that he will leave Sevilla? No, not even one. Grzegorz is happy in Sevilla, is well with his teammates, the company and the Spanish city. He has three-and-a-half years on his contract, I do not see he will go.”

Considering Gonzalez is 33-years-old, it is likely that his arrival will be nothing more than a squad signing, to provide cover for Krychowiak - who has been a key player this term. There was little chance he would have moved to Arsenal before the signing, and his agent looks to have now ruled out any switch to North London this month.
