Arsenal defender Gael Clichy is set to move to Manchester City, MirrorFootball understands.

The Gunners left back is expected to complete a £7m switch to Eastlands once he has passed a medical and agreed personal terms.

The news is a blow to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger who had hoped to convince the 25-year-old to stay and sign a new contract. But with just one year left on his current deal, the club were reluctant to risk losing him for nothing next summer.

Liverpool were also keen on signing the Frenchman and reportedly had a £5m bid turned down earlier this month.

The move also raises question marks over the future of Aleksander Kolarov at Eastlands. The Serbian joined the club last summer for £16m from Lazio but has failed to make the position his own.

Clichy joined the Gunners from French side Cannes in 2003 when he was just 18.

He became the first-choice left-back in 2006 when Ashley Cole moved to Chelsea.
