Arsene Wenger has started to splash the cash over the past couple of seasons and no doubt he will be looking to add more players to his squad at the end of the season. They are in a good position in the Premier League and with the new players coming in, there is going to be some players leaving. But which players could be shown the exit door?
Jack Wilshere has been extremely injury prone throughout his career – and he is only 24. With new players joining the club, it looks more and more likely that soon Arsene Wenger will lose patience with Wilshere and sell the midfielder. Much was expected of Wilshere at Arsenal, he came up through their youth academy and became Arsenal’s youngest ever league debutant at the age of 16 years, 256 days in 2008. He has earned the PFA young player of the year and Arsenal’s player of the season award during his time at the Emirates.
Tomas Rosicky has been a good servant for Arsenal but his playing time has been dramatically reduced over the past couple of seasons and he finally looks set to end his spell with Arsenal in the summer. With the performances of Cazorla, Ramsey and Coquelin, Rosicky has found it very hard to earn a place in the team. During his time at Arsenal he has won two FA Cups and the Community Shield.
Mikel Arteta is another midfielder who has struggled to get playing time. The Arsenal captain has been a leader for the club during his time there but with his contract ending in the summer, he looks certain to be leaving Arsenal at the end of the season. His recent injuries have also prevented him from much game time.
Wojciech Szczęsny is another player who looks certain to leave Arsenal at the end of the season. He is currently on-loan at Roma and with the last summer signing of Petr Cech, Szczęsny doesn’t look to have a future at Arsenal.
Mathieu Debuchy has recently left on-loan to Bordeaux to improve his chances of making France’s Euro 2016 squad. He lost his place at right-back to Hector Bellerin and made a sensible choice to go out on loan and get more playing time. Arsene Wenger blocked a potential move to rivals Manchester United in January but when his loan deal expires at the end of the season, Debuchy will undoubtedly be looking to leave the club permanently.
Yaya Sanogo has only played 11 league games for Arsenal since joining in 2013. With his lack of goals and playing time, Wenger sent him out on loan to four different clubs over the past year. With Sanchez, Welbeck and Giroud in the squad, Sanogo will more than likely be looking for a new club in the summer.
Carl Jenkinson has been on loan at West Ham for the past two seasons where he has been a regular starter. With the emergence of Hector Bellerin at Arsenal, Jenkinson will more than likely make his loan deal to West ham permanent in the summer.
