Arsenal have few fringe players in the squad and Soccer Souls will take a look at three possible players Arsene Wenger could probably offload in the January transfer window.
Bendtner has been away from the North London side, having spent the last two seasons at Sunderland and Juventus. Unfortunately for the Dane, his time during the Black Cats and the Italian champions was a disappointing one as poor performance coupled with injuries saw him suffer with his form
The 25-year-old started in only two Serie A games for Juventus during the title winning campaign last season. Bendtner failed to score or manage an assist in all competitions for the Turin club during the previous term.
During the striker’s time at the Stadium of Light, he managed eight goals and registered five assists in 28 Premier League appearances. After two long years on loan with Sunderland and Juventus, the striker returned to the Emirates in the summer.
Bendtner made only one appearance in the Premier League coming from the bench and has failed to add any value to the squad. Wenger has been fielding Olivier Giroud as the lone striker up front and it is likely that the Denmark international’s future at the North London club is coming to an end.
Chu-Young is not a familiar figure at the Emirates and his contribution to the Gunners have been barely minimum. The South Korean international joined Arsenal in the summer of 2011 from Monaco after having decent years with the French outfit.
However, the 28-year-old has failed to cement a place either in Arsenal’s starting lineup or on the substitute’s bench in the Premier League. Chu-Young has played a mere six minutes in the league during his time at the North London club and was with Celta Vigo on loan during the last season.
With Chu-Young and Bendtner being the two forwards at the club, it is unlikely that the duo would have any significant role in Wenger’s plan at the club. The Emirates club may be looking to offload the two once the transfer window opens in January.
Fabianski was given the chance to shine in front of the goal when his compatriot Wojciech Szczesny was suffering with the form with a pair of gloves. However, the Polish international was unable to impress Wenger as Arsenal’s stopper, forcing the Frenchman to recall his No 1 to take guard between posts.
In addition to this, Wenger has Emiliano Viviano on loan from Palermo. It could be a possibility that Fabianski could be shown the exit door in the winter transfer window.
