Spanish giants reportedly track Arsenal full-back

Barcelona are tracking Arsenal full-back Emmanuel Eboue, according to reports emanating from Spain. Eboue joined The Gunners from Beveren in 2005, and has made 98 appearances since his switch. Manager Arsene Wenger initially utilised the Ivorian at right-back, however the arrival of Bacary Sagna has seen Eboue move up into right-midfield. And rumours in Spain suggest that Barca are keen to land Eboue in the summer, with Spanish television station TV3 claiming that preliminary talks have already been held. Eboue revealed that a number of 'big clubs' had approached The Gunners about signing him in the January transfer window. Meanwhile, Wenger has revealed that Saturday's 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough left his players with worryingly low morale.

Flattest

"I feel they gave absolutely everything, but there was a little fraction less of belief," he said. "There was a big disappointment in the dressing room. It was like a defeat. It is the flattest I have seen them after a game. "I feel the team fights, we came back again against Boro and this team will fight until the end. "I believe we need to keep fighting and then to turn things around. "We didn't lose against Middlesbrough, a draw was not enough - but we have to lift the spirits and go for the next one."
