So that spices it up a bit, doesn’t it? A new twist in the Gael Clichy saga, now he looks apparently (sort of) destined to move to Goodison Park, where he will swap teams with current Everton left back, Leighton Baines. Although it does seem unlikely that Clichy would want to leave Arsenal for an arguably smaller club.
It is the Metro that are in fact claiming this rumour to be true, so well, a bit of doubt regarding the source but Arsenal are definitely after the Englishman, so possible that the move would happen, strongly against the fact that this would result in Clichy joining a smaller team, just doesn’t sound like him.
Apparently they were considering making a £10million bid for Baines but may now simply offer Clichy in exchange. The paper reports that with Clichy having just a year left on his contract and refusing to discuss another, Arsenal will try and get rid in the summer.
I can reliably tell you guys that this rumour is in fact probably false!
