On the move I am

Leaving aside the Yoda syntax – headed to the Dagobah system, Emmanuel? – the tweet seems quite clear cut: Frimpong looks set to leave the Gunners in the coming days.
His destination is currently unclear – though some speculation has emerged that the club taking him on could in fact be fellow Barclays Premier League club Fulham.
It would be an intriguing move for Arsenal too.
Arsene Wenger was without Mikel Arteta and Francis Coquelin against West Ham on Wednesday evening, and played Aaron Ramsey in the holding role in their stead.
That meant Frimpong was the only defensive midfielder left in the squad, and he only merited a place on the bench.
Perhaps after a promising youth career in which he looked set to graduate to the first team alongside Jack Wilshere, Frimpong – who has had loan spells at Wolverhampton Wanderers and Charlton Athletic – has not quite made it at Arsenal.
