Galatasaray are preparing an £18million double swoop for Arsenal stars Andrey Arshavin and Emmanuel Eboue.

The Turkish side want the two Gunners to spearhead their attack on winning back the league title from rivals Fenerbahce.

Arshavin, 30, did not enjoy his best season last year despite making 11 assists, and lost his place on the wing to Samir Nasri and Theo Walcott.

The Russia international was expected to leave during the summer but the possible departures of both Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri gave him hope his Gunners career may not be over.

But with Nasri expected to stay for one more year and the imminent arrival of Juan Mata from Valencia means manager Arsene Wenger will cash in on the £14million-rated winger.

Another summer arrival, in Carl Jenkinson, has pushed Eboue, 28, further down the pecking order for the right-back position.

The Ivory Coast international is seen as a fringe player and Wenger could use the money from the £4million sale to strengthen other areas for the team.

The Frenchman is still keen on signing a centre-back with a reported £13million bid for Everton’s Phil Jagielka about to be tabled.
