William Gallas is ready to leave Arsenal on a Bosman.

The Guardian says Gallas is expected to leave, together with another defender, Mikaël Silvestre, who is to be released as a free agent. Wenger has been willing to break his policy of offering only one-year contract extensions to players over the age of 30 by granting Gallas two years on significantly reduced wages.

But Gallas is not prepared to accept this and Paris St-Germain, his hometown club, are at the head of the queue to take him away on a longer-term deal. There is also interest from Italy's Serie A.
