Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is finally looking set to bid adieu to club veteran Matheiu Flamini, with reports in The Daily Mail revealing that Galatasaray have become interested in signing the 31 year old today.
Flamini, who joined the Gunners for the second time, in the summer of 2013, has fallen down the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium, with Wenger placing immense faith in Francis Coquelin in recent times. And as a result of that, it is believed that the player may be allowed to move now, with Wenger himself known to be open to that prospect.
The 31 year old has made 218 appearances for the north London giants over the course of his two stints at the club, even scoring 11 goals in the process. At times, the player has proven to be an immensely useful performer for the side, with him capable of playing as a defensive or a holding midfielder, as per the needs of his team.
Flamini, however, has suffered a marked dip in form in recent times, which has only brought him even closer to the exit door.
It was recently revealed that the player may demand a huge payoff to move away from the Emirates Stadium only a year before the expiration of his contract.
Galatasaray, meanwhile, have already been linked with potential moves for the likes of Joel Campbell and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, having already landed Lukas Podolski from Arsenal earlier this summer.
