It seems as though although Eboue’s error-prone season has cost him dearly, with his error against Liverpool high up on that error list, and recent reports suggest that Wenger is getting tired of his errors.

Eboue is set to complete a move to Turkish outfit Galatasaray in the coming days, with the transfer fee hinted to be around 4 million pounds according to The Guardian.

Jay Emmanuel-Thomas is staying in England, and it’s reported that Arsenal have struck a deal with Championship side Ipswich Town over their young midfielder. Arsenal had accepted two bids over the weekend, with the other being to Burnley, however JET turned down the opportunity to move to Burnley.
