Arsenal Transfer News - Eboue to Follow Toure

Arsenal's coffers could be swollen by as much as £25m in the next week with Emmanuel Eboue poised to follow Kolo Toure out of the Emirates.

Toure's transfer to Man City is near completion with the defender scheduled to undergo a medical in the north-west later today. According to The Sun, Arsenal will receive £17m for the 28-year-old.

Meanwhile, The Times reports that 'Fiorentina have agreed a five-year contract with Emmanuel EbouĂ©, but the Italian club's £5.2 million offer for the midfield player is some way short of Arsenal's £8.6 million valuation.'

If the Gunners' negotiations are successful then Arsene Wenger will have raised approximately £50m in three weeks following the £25m departure of Emmanuel Adebayor to City earlier this month. It is surely no coincidence that the three Africans have been described as a close-knit unit in the Arsenal dressing-room or that Wenger has tolerated their departures ahead of a season that will be interrupted by the African Nations Cup in January.

It does, though, remain unknown just how much of the money recouped in transfer fees will be put at Wenger's disposal for new additions.
