Gunners ready to accept Man City's Wayne Bridge
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.
