Cesc set for final curtain call

ARSENAL captain Cesc Fabregas looks set to don a red and white shirt for the final time today at an open training session for the club’s members at Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal are bracing themselves for an improved offer of around £35m from Barcelona for the Spaniard, but are still expecting the 24-year-old to turn up for their team photo today.

One man unlikely to be in attendance is Ivory Coast defender Emmanuel Eboue, who was last night on the verge of becoming the second full-back to be sold by Arsene Wenger this summer.

Eboue is expected to follow Gael Clichy, who joined Manchester City last month, out of the club after agreeing terms with Turkish club Galatasaray.

Defender Kyle Bartley has signed a new long-term contract, while Wenger is also in the race to sign Real Madrid’s 16-year-old striker Jose Rodriguez.
