Arsenal cult hero hoping for Emirates return follow Galatasaray disaster

Arsenal cult hero Emmanuel Eboue has revealed he would love to return to the club in the near future, according to reports from The Sun via the Daily Mail.

Eboue spent six years with the Gunners from 2005-2011, making a move to Galatasaray in a deal worth €3.5 million four years ago.

However, the Ivory Coast international had a clash with the owners and Italian manager Cesare Prandelli last season, and was forced to play for the Under-21 side for the entirety of their campaign.

But after being released by the Turkish club in the summer, Eboue has claimed that he is looking for a return to football and that he would love to once again play at the Emirates.

He told The Sun: “I came back for training and was told I would not be playing.

“The president told the manager at the time not to pick me. The way I was treated was very unfair.

“We are looking for options but I’d love to come back to Arsenal.”

The Gunners could consider signing the 32-year-old on a free this month, with back-up right back Mathieu Debuchy already looking for an exit in his search for first-team football.

Eboue made 101 appearances for Galatasaray until his fallout, scoring five goals while providing 12 assists.
