What will Arsenal do with exit-linked strike duo?

Both Yaya Sanogo and Chuba Akpom have been linked with moves this month, but have so far failed to secure one.

The former is into the final six months of his contract, so a permanent transfer was believed most likely, but we have either failed to drum up interest in his signature, or Arsene Wenger is willing to to give him six more months with the club to prove his worth.

Which Arsenal stars could head for the exit door in January?

We have just over a month until the winter transfer window opens, so we thought we’d take a look at the players which could find themselves leaving Arsenal.

Why are Arsenal yet to extend Cazorla and others contracts?

Santi Cazorla is out of contract come the end of the season, so why have Arsenal failed to extend his deal?

The Spaniard has been one of our most influential players this season, being one of the first names on the teamsheet when fit, and I can think of no reason why he would be left to run his contract down this season.

Could Wenger promote Akpom instead of buying a new Arsenal striker?

Will Arsenal invest or promote Chuba Akpom?

Whilst it remains well anticipated that Arsenal will be looking to recruit a striker this summer to join the front line, just who will be signing for the club, remains largely unknown. But instead of seeing a new face at the Emirates, could Wenger instead promote Akpom to first team duties?

Will Yaya Sanogo ever be ready to play for Arsenal?

When Arsenal bought Yaya Sanogo from the French side Auxerre three seasons ago, he was hailed as a hot young talent and was expected to flourish under Arsene Wenger’s tutelage. But after two years of doing not-very-much at Arsenal, he was sent out on loan at Dutch side Ajax, where it was hoped he would be learning from our past-master Dennis Bergkamp and manager Frank De Boer.

Failed Yaya Sanogo set for Arsenal return

The French youngster Yaya Sanogo looked to be an incredible prospect when Arsenal signed him from Auxerre two summers ago. He was 20 years old, 6ft 4in tall, and had an excellent scoring record of 26 goals in 52 games for the French club.

Ozil was brilliant – but a word of warning…..

It is easy to get carried away with Arsenal’s pre-season form, especially when your team slots six goals with no response. Naysayers will be quick to remind us about Yaya Sanogo. The lanky forward burst into the scene with a wonderful exhibition of skill and finishing at the Emirates Cup last pre-season. But when the season started, he faded away and was recently shipped to Ajax on loan. The point is not to get the expectations too pumped up but to look at the preparations with pragmatism.
