Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is set to lose Kyle Ebecilio this summer as the young midfielder is ready to move to FC Twente, according to talkSPORT.

The 19-year-old arrived from Feyenoord in the summer of 2010, and quickly established himself as a key player in the Arsenal reserve set-up.

The Dutchman was also one of the stars of the under-17 European Championships in 2011 - where he won the Golden Player award - but he's failed to break into the first team at the Emirates Stadium.

Cousin of Chelsea's Jeffrey Bruma, reports in Holland claim Ebecilio is set to join FC Twente at the end of the season.

He's out of contract this summer, and has not yet agreed an extension. As a result, he's free to join the Dutch club on a free transfer.

The hard-working central midfielder has found it difficult to get a game at Arsenal, despite the departure of Alex Song last season.

Mikel Arteta, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere and Abou Diaby all block his path into the first-team squad, and he's rarely on the bench.

FC Twente currently sit fifth in the Eredivisie after an impression season, and they're pushing Vitesse for a top four spot.
