Arsenal target Joan Jordan chooses next club as Gunners target Aaron Ramsey replacement | Football | Sport
Emery is in the market to replace Juventus-bound Aaron Ramsey while Manuel Pellegrini has room on his wage budget after seeing Samir Nasri leave the London Stadium.
However, Spanish outlet Marca have now claimed that Jordan is desperate to secure a move to Sevilla, rather than England, this summer.
Marca had revealed last week that Arsenal had enquired about the possibility of signing the 24-year-old, but West Ham went one step further by submitting a proposal.
Emery was keen to bring Jordan to the club because he is likely to cost under £20million, which is around half of what the Spaniard will have to spend this summer after Arsenal failed to secure a return to Champions League football.
One deal that remains a possibility is one for Fiorentina midfielder Jordan Veretout.
The Frenchman has become a highly-rated creator in Italy after failing to impress at Aston Villa, and his agent, Mario Giuffredi, has insisted that the player’s future remains uncertain.
“As far as I know, Fiorentina have not given the all-clear for Veretout to join Napoli,’ he told Radio CRC.
“The problem is they [Fiorentina] don’t currently have a director of sport, so I don’t know who to communicate with.
“I also have no guarantees that Vincenzo Montella will remain as coach, it’s all up in the air after the club’s takeover [by Rocco Commisso].”
Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser is another target for Emery after he impressed for Eddie Howe’s men last season.
The Scotland international is approaching the final year of his deal on the south coast and he recently admitted that his future is unclear.
“The lads have been asking,” the winger told BBC Sport. “I don’t know myself so there’s no point thinking about it, wherever I’ll be, I’ll be.
“I don’t know what is happening. I’m not just saying that.
“Wherever I’ll be, if it’s Bournemouth or if it’s at somebody else, then all you can do is try your best and enjoy football.
“If you think about anything else, I’ll probably have a bad game.”
