More high profile players want to follow Luiz out of Arsenal

Arsenal is facing the prospect of losing several important players after it emerged that David Luiz is not signing a new contract.

The Brazilian has reportedly told Arsenal that he is leaving after this campaign ends in a matter of weeks.

He has been at the Emirates since 2019 after Arsenal signed him from Chelsea.

The Gunners have enjoyed his experience and leadership in their team since he has been around.

However, they will have to move on from him now, but he might not be the only senior player that leaves them.

The Athletic says Willian, Bernd Leno, Granit Xhaka and Hector Bellerin also want to leave.

Although Arsenal wants to rebuild, it would hardly make sense for them to lose that many key players.

Willian has struggled at the Emirates since he joined, but Xhaka remains an important member of the team.

The Swiss midfielder has showcased his versatility by playing as a left-back in recent games.

Inconsistency has plagued Leno, but he is still Arsenal’s number one though they might not raise as much money from his sale as anticipated.

The focus for everyone now should be ending this season as high as possible even if it means playing in the European Conference League.

    Exactly what we need to hear
    the rubbish wants to move on, now we replace with proper Arsenal quality, makes it a lot easier with them wanting to go.

  2. Kobin says:

    Beat GAI to it today Cuppers! Oh no and I wanted to be number one. But me move. Arsenal are going through a rebuild, anyone who wants to leave should. No one is bigger than the club.

  3. Muhedin says:

    Who cares about Luiz we had a number of reds and gave decisive penalties, he als restricted defenders like saliba not to polish. Willan I still see him important bur so long as we get 10 m it is okay. Xaka, I think he will stay. Ver professional but a times with useless temper. Leno, let him go an d bring someone useful and committed like Martinaze. Arteta has already made huge boyish mistake in allowing good goal keeper we brought us 2 trophies. Bellerin has already gone 2 years ago and I do not see him staying. Bring someone else.

    The Conference League whoop! Whoop!

      After we miss on that so-called “ Cinference League”,what UEFA is going to invent next fir Arsenal to finally have a chance in Europe?Mickey Mouse Cup?

  5. Atuliwa ochuko says:

    Better for all of them to go. What have they really brought to Arsenal?

    1. MartinelliTheBench says:

      Red cards

    2. Loose Cannon says:

      9th or 10th spot and nothing more. Good riddance to utter bad rubbish

  8. DantheMan says:

    Fine if they want to leave!!! We probably need to sell anyways to raise sufficient funds for the summer.

    My problem is, do you trust this board and manager to select quality signings to replace them? Track record so far for me suggests most likely not!!
    But I’m open-minded so Arse you have the summer to convince me!

    Luiz decision is correct. Bring in some midfielder to lighten the load on Partey. He is worked like a dog. Then a creative mid to replace Ceballos who scores goals as our midfield is shot shy. Odegaard can go or stay . Bellerin sell now. Xhaka sell next season but phase out. Leno keep until we line up the top keeper next year.

    1. TH14-TW14 says:

      “Bring in some midfielder to lighten the load on Partey. He is worked like a dog.”

      The hype for Partey is so nauseating. If anything, he has been underwhelming since he signed. Xhaka and El Neny (when he has played) have both had better seasons than him. He needs to step up because he can’t have another season like this one.

  10. Bida Isaac says:

    Luiz. Willian. Cedric. Niles. Arteta. Cebalos should all leave.

  11. Sekitya says:

    What’s so hard to buy back Martinez….sell Leno and buy our boy back give Villa 35m…. That will sort out our goal …

    I stick to my preferences arsenal need zaha, grealish, bissouma, max …..and dubois would do the deal for us …

    Grealish 70m…. Give Villa willock and add money.. we can even pay in installments

    Zaha 50m… Give palace Niles and some money we pay in installments

    Bissouma 30m pay it

    Max 20m pay that
    Dubois 20m pay that

    Sell Leno and bring Martinez back..
    Sell bellerin, guendouzi, kolasinac, toreira, mavronapos, we can raise some money from them..

    1. Dan kit says:

      Goals conceded this season

      Arsenal -38
      Villa -41

      So the goalkeeper you want back as actually conceded more goals .
      The way everyone goes on about Martinez you would think he was prime Buffon .

      1. kev says:

        Who cares?? Leno’s still error prone and if people want Martinez back it says a lot more about Leno. Yall should stop arguing quality into players. Hopefully he leaves Arsenal soon

        1. Dan kit says:

          Who cares! You must do Kev as you replied

          1. kev says:

            Your comment is pathetic. Keep on telling us about your favorite who will eventually get sold. I don’t even want to use the clean sheets argument because it easy and is just based on stats which could be way different from the eye test. From the eye test Martinez has been better than Leno this season. We can all have opinion s but the truth is the truth else if were for for opinion I could call Messi an average player.

      2. Loose Cannon says:

        Emi has 15 clean sheets this campaign.How many does Leno have?

        1. Dan kit says:

          You should know LC as your an Arsenal fan ,seeing you know how many Martinez has you shouldn’t need me to tell you how many leno has .

          Another 3 goals conceded 🤔

          1. Davi says:

            Pretty difficult to judge from just goals conceded – I thought this was because Arteta made us too defensive (and hence our poor attack), but now it’s all down to Leno?
            I’m sure there are plenty of more useful statistics you can go through which would give a better picture, but I’ve never felt as confident with Leno in goal as when Martinez was in goal, and I got the sense that the defenders felt the same.
            Martinez may have conceded 3 today, but the real question is: could he have prevented them?
            Anyway, we really should move on from these comparisons, just frustrated with the arguments being made.

  12. Adega Olatunji says:

    Please when are they leaving? Let me know so that I can fix the date I will start watching Arsenal matches again.

    1. Vernon says:

      They must go with Arteta. Useless bunch, together with the manager. Bring Allegro and a good goalie. Willock back as well as Salina.

  13. Davi says:

    I’d be happy to see them leave, but it’s critical that they be replaced with quality. That said, I’d much rather we promoted academy players (even if it didn’t immediately improve results!) than gamble on expensive “stars” with questionable motivations.

  14. jon fox says:

    Apart from LENO. it will be champagne time when the other deadwood on this list leave. CANT WAIT TO SEE THE BACK OF THEM!

  15. The-Real-Vieira-Lynn-4ever says:

    articles like this are music to my ears…there’s no way Willian is going anywhere unless he’s so disgruntled that he’s willing to forgo the remainder of his contract because no one’s going to pay his wage…as for the rest of the lot, I would be incredibly pleased if we saw the backside of Xhaka, Bellerin and Leno, as none of them are worth their respective current wages and all have become high maintenance entities along the way

  16. Vandall777 says:

    Can some one slap me, to make sure I’m not dreaming. The list of names wanting to leave/release are music to my ears. We have suffered from mediocrity for a long time now, I hope all associated with the club buy some proper players who are not weak and meek and know what it means to play for Arsenal.

  17. Bbb says:

    Arteta has pushed out the players who delivered the FA last season and retained the big name nothings. Leno is the weakest link in the current team and was never better than the gollie that was sold last season

  18. JW says:

    My worry is not so much who goes, but who replaces them.
    If the likes of Bertrand and Ramsey are anybody’s list, then surely nothing will have changed!
