No Arsenal fans will be surprised that Nicklas Bendtner and Park Chu Young (did he ever join?) have been released by Arsene Wenger, but some of us thought that Chuks Aneke may have been given a new contract after scoring 16 goals on loan at Crewe this season. But it looks like Wenger thinks there are too many other strikers ahead of him right now (I thought we only had one!)
I am not going to be too hard on the Arsenal and South Korea striker Park Chu-Young, but it is safe to say that his time with the Gunners has been a big disappointment for all sides. Many expected him to be part of the mass clear out from the Emirates this summer, but he is still with the club.

Should Arsenal release Park? by AH
There have been recent murmurs going around world media that Arsenal have terminated the contract of Korean international striker Chu Young Park. The rumours started off from an independent Spanish press company, who are seemingly afflicted with Park’s old club Celta Vigo, where he spent last season out on loan.
Ramsey shows his worth by DG
Aaron Ramsey has not had an easy run of it. After showing so much early promise at Arsenal he missed almost a year of football thanks to Ryan Shawcross. On his return, Ramsey struggled to win over Gooners with some varied performances. However, the absence of Jack Wilshere and the sale of Alex Song this season has meant that Arsene Wenger has had to rely on the young Welshman more and more, and he is finally starting to reap consistent rewards.
Arsenal’s famous list of “deadwood” players seems to get bigger every year, but for some reason we can never get anyone to actually buy them off us and we have to struggle to send them out on loan every year. But we still do have some talented players out there that have a chance of coming back and becoming first team players of the future.
