Arsenal boss Wenger prepared to sell Clichy to Liverpool

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is ready to sell Gael Clichy to Liverpool.

The Daily Mail says Liverpool are weighing up a £5million bid for Arsenal's Clichy as their search for a new left back intensifies.

Wenger was confident towards the end of the season that he would be able to persuade Clichy to commit to a new deal but, despite the promise of big spending this summer, their poor finish to the season and growing discontent among other squad members has cast doubts over his future.

Clichy is Arsenal's longest serving player after making his debut for the club in the 2003-04 season following a switch from Cannes but Wenger knows he could be forced to cash in rather than risking the player running down his contract.

Liverpool are making a determined effort to rebuild their squad into a title force and that could prove an attractive challenge. They would also be willing to give him a considerable pay hike on his £55,000 a week salary.
