Turkish side Galatasaray have confirmed via their official website that they’re in negotiations with Emmanuel Eboue over a possible transfer to the club.
That they’re speaking to the player suggests an agreement has been made between the two clubs. The Ivorian, who only signed a new Arsenal contract in late 2010, has been available for transfer this summer – with suspicions Wenger’s patience ran out after that calamitous penalty incident against Liverpool last season.
When youngster Carl Jenkinson was the prefered understudy to Bacary Sagna in pre-season, and Gervinho took his squad number, the writing was very much on the wall for his Arsenal career.
Eboue joined Arsenal in 2004 from Beveren and has made a total of 214 appearances for the club, scoring 10 goals.
