The Last of The Invincibles on the Verge of Leaving...

Kolo Toure is in talks with Man City, who will soon be their 5th signing this summer. Kolo played 326 games for Arsenal, scoring 14 goals. His last goal came last season at the Hawthorns in the 3-1 win over West Brom. He arrived at Arsenal in 2002, initially given a utility man role, he excelled in Centre-Back since the Invincibles season and helped the Gunners winning the Premiership in 2004, the FA Cup in 2005, and setting a Champions League clean sheet record in 2005. He's had a major dip in form since he came back from the 2008 African Cup of Nations, which indicated he might have been burnt out.

Kolo Toure was the last of the regular Invincibles. Only Gael Clichy is the remaining personnel who was a Gunner in the Invincibles season. Cesc Fabregas was in the club at the time, but he never played in the league that season.
