Arsenal midfielder exit imminent - reports

Arsenal midfielder Henri Lansbury is reportedly set to join Barclays Premier League new boys Norwich, having spent a successful spell on loan at Carrow Road last season.

According to The Sun, the 20-year-old will complete a £1.5 million move to Norfolk, as the Canaries look to bolster their ranks ahead of the new campaign.

Lansbury made 23 appearances in the Npower Championship for Paul Lambert's side, scoring four times, but returned to Arsenal after his loan expired.

It had been claimed that Arsene Wenger was hoping to keep the England under-21 international at the Emirates Stadium, with some reports suggesting the Arsenal boss had rejected an offer for Lansbury last week.


However, if today's claims are to be believed, Lansbury's fledgling senior career with Arsenal could be coming to an end, after only six games in the first-team.

Wenger, meanwhile, is still hoping to reinforce his squad before the new term kicks off on August 13, with renewed bids for Phil Jagielka and Juan Mata touted in Friday's press.

Arsenal had an initial approach for Jagielka rejected last week, but have been tipped to return to Everton with an improved offer in the region of £17 million.
