Eboue's future as a Gunner unsettled

The season is over and the transfer windows all over the world are squeaking open. In England and Arsenal in particular, fans expect lots of going in and buzzing off.

Emmanuel Eboue has been unsure of his place in the team and has speaken about his future:

"My future at Arsenal is not clear yet, I did not play a lot in the season and the World Cup is coming.

"There are many clubs interested in me, so let's wait.

"Before the season's start I will make a decision."

The Arsenal blog Arseblog doesn't doubt there are many clubs interested in the Ivorian but thinks the final few months of the season are a good indication that his future lies elsewhere.

He was a barely used substitute for much of it, as clear a sign as any that Arsene Wenger didn't really count on him. There are those who think he's a handy utility player but he's been one of the most frustrating players seen in an Arsenal shirt and many won't be shedding any tears if he leaves.

Arseblog says they might even have a party! Gross...
