Arsenal are reportedly close to selling Emmanuel Eboue to Galatasaray in a £4million deal.
The 28-year-old is surplus to requirements at the Emirates and is not part of Arsene Wenger's plans for the next season, with the Frenchman still unhappy about Eboue conceding a costly last-minute penalty against Liverpool towards the end of the season.
And according to The Guardian, Eboue looks to have played his last game for the club, with a £4m move to Turkish giants Galatasaray close to being agreed.
The Ivory Coast international is likely to be joined on the way out of north London by young striker Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, who is close to sealing a £1m transfer to Ipswich Town.
Another striker, Nicklas Bendtner, is expected to be sold before the end of August, while goalkeeper Manuel Almunia is also likely to be offloaded by Wenger.
The pending sale of Eboue comes at the start of a crucial few weeks for Wenger.
The Gunners boss has brought in Gervinho from Lille and Carl Jenkinson from Charlton Athletic in deals worth around £12m.
But with Gael Clichy having left the club, and with the future of captain Cesc Fabregas and contract rebel Samir Nasri yet to be resolved, Wenger knows he needs to strengthen his squad considerably if he is to challenge for honours next season and end a run of six years without a trophy.
Fabregas remains a target for Barcelona, while AC Milan are also interested (see below).
Nasri is still of interest to Manchester United and Man City, along with several Serie A sides.
