Arsenal fans are well aware that as well as looking to use the summer transfer window to bring in new blood and strengthen the current Arsenal playing staff in key areas, the manager is faced with the task of stopping some of the Gunners from leaving our club.
Alexis Sanchez is obviously the main topic here, with the Chilean seemingly wanting to go and with just a year on his current contract. He is by no means the only Arsenal player being sought by other clubs though, and reports suggest that the boss could have his hands full this week to fight off transfer pursuits for two other big players of ours.
One is Hector Bellerin the Spanish right back, who The Mirror reports is still on the transfer wish list of FC Barcelona. They claim the next 10 days will be crucial to where the Spaniard will be playing his football next season, with Barca set to look elsewhere unless they can get the deal done in that time.
The other Gunner we are at risk of losing according to The Mirror is our England international star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who is said to have become frustrated about the lack of contact from Arsenal over an extension to his current contract which is now in the final year.
The report claims that our Premier League rivals Liverpool want the Ox and are ready to take advantage so have made the first step towards a summer transfer. So while Arsenal fans are keen to see new players join, is it more important right now for the boss to stop these two from leaving?
