It was officially announced today that Arsenal has released seven players including four first-teamers and they will now need to be replaced.
The first team players now off the books are Petr Cech who has retired, Aaron Ramsey left of his own accord and Stephan Lichtsteiner and Danny Welbeck have been released without being offered new deals.
Bernd Leno will definitely need a backup and that could possibly be David Ospina, however, the club has been linked with the likes of Valencia goalkeeper Norberto Murara so a new signing maybe on the cards.
Stephan Lichtsteiner position is almost certainly going to be taken by the returning Hector Bellerin but he will need cover that is for certain.
The role of Aaron Ramsey is one we have been trying to find a successor for some time now and if the latest reports are to be believed that could well be Sampdoria Dennis Praet.
Finally, Danny Welbeck, now that he has gone we could take the opportunity to give one of our talented youngsters a chance but just today it was reported that we have tabled an offer for Club Brugge striker Emmanuel Dennis, which we covered here.
Of course, there are a ton of other players we have been linked within most of those positions, though not so much a back-up keeper and so it could easily be totally different to the names I have mention but regardless, replacements will be needed.
The question is, who?
