Defender set to follow Fabregas out of Arsenal

Galatasary have bid accepted for Eboue

Arsenal look set to sell Emmanuel Eboue after Galatasary confirmed they have had a bid accepted for the Ivorian.

The 28-year-old has struggled to make his mark in the first team last season and his departure was expected after he was not issued a squad number.

“Galatasaray has begun negotiations with Arsenal FC for the transfer of Ivorian-Belgian professional football player Emmanuel Eboue,” a statement on Galatasaray’s official website.

“The public will be updated about the developments.”

Eboue joined the north London club in 2005 from Belgian side Beveren making 132 appearances.
