Arsenal have confirmed the sale of Ismael Bennacer to Italian club Empoli.
Last season he spent the second half of the campaign on loan at French club Tours but has not been able to force his way into Arsene Wenger’s plans and has been allowed to leave.
Arsenal said in a statement: “We’d like to wish Ismael well for the future.”
Bennacer joined the youth academy in 2015 and he made his sole appearance for the first team in the same year in a 3-0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday in the League Cup.
