Could these 10 Arsenal stars leave this summer?

Arsene Wenger’s future remains up in the air at present, and while he is known for not liking too change much in personnel in a short time at Arsenal, the club may not have too much choice this summer.

Every one of you readers will be aware of the ongoing reports linking Alexis Sanchez with the exit door, with the Chilean believed to have told team-mates that he wants to leave, as well as the fact that he is entering the final 12 months of his contract this summer.

He is not the only player entering the final year of his deal at the end of the season however, and unless extensions can be agreed before the transfer window closes on August 31. we could be forced into further transfer sagas.

Mesut Ozil has this week backtracked on comments which implied he was seeking assurances over the future of Arsene Wenger before considering a new contract, and we would be relieved to see him extend his time with the club in the near future.

One player who has so far refused to talk about his intentions for next season is Jack Wilshere, who is currently enjoying a spell on loan with fellow Premier League side AFC Bournemouth. Jack has made it perfectly clear that he is solely concentrated on his temporary side’s season, prioritising their importance over Arsenal’s, and with many teams supposedly eyeing his signature, he may well force a summer exit also.

There is four more players who you are most likely unaware of that have less than 18 months remaining tied to our club. Carl Jenkinson is the least important squad member in that bracket, and his exit will have very little impact on our team-sheet.

Kieran Gibbs is also on that list, and we have been on the lookout for his potential replacement for some time now. He is our only senior back-up to Nacho Monreal at left-back currently, but at 26, he may be keen on leaving in search of more regular action.

Aaron Ramsey is also out of contract in 2018, and being a favourite of Arsene Wenger, may well question his importance to Arsenal should the Frenchman leave for pastures new. The Welshman has failed to nail himself down in a regular position in his time with our club, and most recently, was thoroughly disappointing against Lincoln this weekend.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is the last of the long list of stars who will enter the final season of their contracts, although despite the recent links with other clubs, he seems most settled within our squad. The Ox has found himself excelling in a newfound central midfield role under Wenger, and I would be most surprised to see him leave on a permanent basis.

Away from those whose contracts could implement a move, Yaya Sanogo looks certain to leave on a free transfer this summer, while a number of others have come under fire.

Mathieu Debuchy has been surplus to requirements within our squad for some time, and we will most likely try and offload him if we can find a buyer.

Petr Cech has also come under criticism for a number of below-par displays, and with Joe Hart supposedly becoming available, we should maybe consider replacing the shot-stopper, who turns 35 in the coming months.

Are you certain of any of these stars staying, regardless of whether Wenger stays or goes? Which players should we be looking to replace?

    We need to lighten our load especially our forwards : Alexis, Giroud, Walcott, Oxlade, Iwobi, Lucas, Campbell, Sanogo, Akpom, Welbeck

    We have 1wc and rest are decent to below average.

    We should use funds towards another top forward, two if Alexis leaves.

    I think we should say adios to Ramsey, Sanogo, Debuchy and Jenkinson and get two backup RB and a Top DM

    Say goodbye to either Gibbs or Monreal and get a Top LB

    But this is all dreaming

    Without A new manager we are screwed
    WENGER OUT PLEASE

    from all the bunch you have listed I will only consider keeping 4 of them,
    Alexis, ox, jack and Ozil.
    all the rest should find their way out, I can even add some few in the out list.
    Coquelin, Gabriel, and per mertesacker.

    People who need to stay at Arsenal
    Alisha Usmanov
    Sanchez
    Kos
    Bellerin
    Ozil
    Mustafi
    Wilshire
    campbell
    welbeck
    Perez
    Xhaka
    Czech
    Holding
    Carzola

    As for the fans ,the AOBs need to stay.

    Wenger should form a football club with the deadwoods in the French league where he can be humiliated by a French non league side.

      I don’t know why you got thumbs down. I like everyone on your list. I had to give a thumbs up

      I’d be so happy and surprised if all those players were with us next year

      Maybe its because theo, Giroud, Ox are not on the list????

      But in order to get another World Class forward that we desperately need we need to free up salaries : Theo alone is £140,000 per week. So I am okay losing a good player like Theo, Giroud, Ox, Campbell, if it meant getting a better quality forward

          He got thumbed down, because some people simply did not agree with him. Plain as that. You know it happens all the time in reality…

    It’s a shame that we are a club that loves mediocrity.. why did we give Mertesacker a new contract when we have Chambers n Holding? why is Theo earning 140? Why did We sign Lucas n then keep him on d bench? Why did we sign d guy from the J-league? Why did we loan Campbell? What’s Sanogo still doing at Arsenal? Why did we keep Wenger as coach till now?
