Full back Wayne Bridge could be on his way to Arsenal after Roberto Mancini told him it is time to leave Manchester City.
The 90,000-pound-a-week fullback is unwanted at the Etihad and the Gunners are favourites to pounce, The Sun reports.
Boss Mancini said: "It should be important for a player to play football. I don't know why someone would want to stay when they know they cannot get in a team. I hope he will go. It's difficult for a player to stay here every day then, on a Saturday, nothing. When we are here he trains with us and, sometimes, he trains with the young players."
Former England left-back Bridge, 31, has not started a Premier League game for City since October 2010.
