Galatasaray want Emirates favourite.
Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Eboue is in talks with Galatasaray over a move to Turkey and looks to be following Cesc Fabregas out of north London.
The 28-year-old struggled for first-team action last season and was expected to leave as he was not granted a squad number this year.
The Ivory Coast international joined Arsenal in 2005 establishing himself at right-back.
But he lost his place to Bacary Sagna and with the arrival of Carl Jenkinson this summer, he has slipped further down the pecking order.
Eboue has had mixed fortunes with the Gunners. In 2008, he was substituted after coming on as replacement against Wigan and was booed by the Emirates crowd.
But he worked hard and came back a better player and is now adored by the Gunners faithful.
He is known for his ‘jokes’ with fellow players and entertaining dance celebrations when he scores.
“Galatasaray has begun negotiations with Arsenal FC for the transfer of Ivorian-Belgian professional football player, Emmanuel Eboue,” a statement read on the Turkish club’s website.
“The public will be updated about the developments.”
Eboue will become the second major Arsenal player to leave this week following Fabregas’ £35million move to Barcelona being confirmed yesterday.
