This isn’t the first time Atletico Madrid have shown an interest in Emmanuel Eboue and it would be interesting to see how the player and our boss would react if an actual bid came in for the £9m rated back up player.
We all know about the problems the Ivorian had after some shocking displays led to some sections of the Gunners crowd getting on his back, which in the long run didn’t do him any harm and perhaps made him buck up his ideas.
He is a very decent player to have in reserve in case of injuries and loss of form and can play in a number of positions to a pretty decent level. However in many ways perhaps both Arsenal Football club and Eboue himself would be better served if they went their separate ways.
Don’t get me wrong, I value his place in our squad, but surely he would like to get a steady run in a team and he won’t get that at the Emirates anytime soon.
