Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is ready to cash-in on midfielder Mathieu Flamini before the close of the summer transfer window.

The Daily Mirror reports that Galatasaray are keen on adding the 31-year-old Frenchman to their ranks in Istanbul, and are confident of securing the player's services by the end of next week.

A move would bring an end to Flamini's second spell with the Gunners, although his recent two-year stint at the Emirates Stadium has been far less productive than the first one under Wenger.

After training with the club as a free agent in 2013 following the end of his contract at AC Milan, the three-cap international would sign a three-year deal with Arsenal.

However, he only started 15 Premier League games last season and struggled for opportunities. With just 12 months left on his current deal in north London, Wenger now appears willing to cut ties with the player once again.

Successful first spell

Flamini first joined Arsenal back in 2004, spending four years in north London and picking up the the first of his three FA Cup.

He also helped the club reach the Champions League final in 2006, losing 2-1 to Barcelona in Paris.

During his five years in Italy he also won a Serie 'A' title, but the veteran now appears set to get his chance to add to his medal collection in the Super Lig if a move to Gala now goes through as expected.
