Outgoing Arsenal rumours – Who will make way for our top targets?

Officially the transfer market is yet to open but the Arsenal rumours never fail to flood the papers. Reportedly, the arrival of Petr Cech is done and dusted and is waiting to be announced. Not taking anything away from the last minute surprises, let us safely assume that Cech will be a Gunner this summer. There a plethora of rumours that link players left, right and center, but there are as many stories that also talk about outgoings.

The biggest question mark is on the future of Jack Wilshere. The injury-prone midfielder is reportedly the target of Manchester City. The cash rich club from Manchester is looking to increase their home grown quota. Wilshere fits the bill and so the interest.

Wilshere is currently one of the club’s lower earners at £50,000 per week. Arsene Wenger will surely be fixing his attentions on handing Wilshere a new contract. The 26 year old is still an integral part of the squad and Wenger believes that there is still to come from the English midfielder. The arrivals of Mesut Ozil, Danny Welbeck and Alexis Sanchez may have pressurized Wilshere but by no means is he near an exit.

Talking of other outgoings – we have many players who will be dispensable this summer. Lukas Podolski, Mathieu Flamini, Tomas Rosicky, David Ospina, Joel Campbell and Yaya Sanogo are looking likely to the candidates to be shipped out.

The impending arrival of Petr Cech would mean the end of Ospina at the club. Podolski has returned from his loan deal at Inter but looks to be out of the club permanently. Reports already link him of inking a deal with Galatasaray though these are unconfirmed yet. However, the German is sure to leave the club.

Same is the case with Flamini. The search for a defensive midfielder is taking Wenger to different continents. There are reports linking with William Carvalho, Morgan Schneiderlin, Arturo Vidal and many others. But, at the same time, it may mean an exit for Flamini.

A quality striker is another on the priority list for Wenger. Searching for a proven option will be complemented by hearing offers for Campbell and Sanogo. The French club Lille is interested in a loan offer for the French youngster Sanogo. The Costa Rican forward Campbell could join Benfica on loan or on a permanent basis.

Wenger knows very well that culling his squad is as important as signing new ones. This summer could mean an interesting squad overhaul.

    Wenger was given a transfer budget of 8 letters this summer and he’s used his entire budget on 2 players. Vlad & Cech.

      Actually if we get Vidal and cech, that would be two world class signings. It will be enough for me, I would settle with that. Would take it right now

        Bellerin, Chamberlain, Fabregas, all examples of wonder kids we signed that started at 16. This kid could be the real deal if they gave him Rosicky’s shirt

    Why are you writing as though you know what areas Wenger is looking to strengthen. We all have an idea of what areas we would like to strengthen but as we should all know by now it doesnt mean that Wenger has the same idea as us. How many times have we thought we were going to buy a CB(for example) then we end up with a midfielder

    Wenger will not buy an out and out striker. He will go for some one who can play anywhere across the front 3. Yes, aubameyang comes to mind here.

      who knows what he’ll buy IF he buys any more at all I fear, though hope differently that Cech, if he comes will be the only marquee signing this season I hope not but echo’s of Wengers words from earlier in the year are bouncing round the inside of my head and Ive been here with AW far too many times in the past.

      When it comes to Arsenal transfers, I don’t cross my fingers, I cross my mind.

        Shut your mind down its the only way its telling that everyone else appears to be busy while our gaffer is away on holiday never a good sign. But a regular one with us I.e the Welbeck transfer which to my mind was confusing and not really needed

    My gut feeling says (PS its more reliable than Metro, goal, caught off side and the likes)

    – Flamini aint going anywhere
    – Arteta staying
    – Ospina – 50/50 as at now
    – TR7 – staying – Cech will need a buddie
    – Poldi SHOULD go
    – Campbell will leave

    Wana bet.

      @007
      mate I fear that you could be right its a worry that Flammini wont go as that will mean NO DM
      Poldi should but again I fear that wont happen.

    I’m starting to take note of Liverpool, they’re signing some good players and they are doing it early. Say what you want but you have to envy their decisiveness in this window. Meanwhile it seems like we don’t even know where to start, being linked with a new player each day….smh.I just hope wenger is not waiting for deadline day drama coz that would be our downfall

      Maybe Arsenal will have signed someone else by next week as well? Then show both of them with the shirt on the same day.

    Vlad might be out before he gets in the first team. So many young talent have come in previous seasons only to leave or be sold after a couple seasons.

    Aubameyang makes perfect sense. He could play on the right therefore replacing Theo who would move to pay central. If Theo does not stay fit then Aubameyang can be used central too and Ox/Wellington could cover the right flank.
