Arsenal look set for a clear out this summer with a number of fringe players and top stars entering the final year of their contracts.

Whether fans will miss many of the anticipated departures is up for debate with Arsene Wenger’s side falling behind their rivals this season.

The lack of clarity in the players’ futures only reflect their managers current contract situation. Wenger revealed last month he had reached a decision with the club to which he would announce in the coming weeks.

However no announcement has been made, although it the Frenchman is expected to continue to steer the ship at The Emirates.

Reece Dixon takes a look at some of the players who seemingly unlike their manager, could be out the door this summer…

David Ospina

The Colombian has enjoyed more game time this season, thanks to regular Champions League opportunities. Yet Ospina has failed to stake his claim as the man to replace Petr Cech between the sticks, despite his teammates inconsistent form this season.

Fenerbahce have been heavily linked with the shot-stopper who is thought to be interested in a move away.

Kieran Gibbs

Gibbs burst on to the scene at The Emirates in 2007 after graduating from the Arsenal academy. Yet the 27 year-old has made just 132 Premier League appearances in nearly 10 years.

Despite being offered a new contract at the club, Arsenal have set about plans for Schalke defender Sead Kolasinac to replace the England international.

Wojciech Szczesny

Wojciech-Szczesny_The Poland international has spent the past two seasons on loan at AS Roma and appears to be maturing in Italy. Szczesny has played every minute of Roma’s 32 Serie A matches, keeping 14 clean sheets in the process.

The long time Arsenal man is still only 26, but whilst Petr Cech continues to hold it down between the sticks, the Pole may have to look elsewhere.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

The 23 year-old remains a frustrating player from the wing and the word “potential” remains close to his name in conversation.

Regular opportunities for the Englishman are still few and far between. And with Liverpool rumoured to be lining up a deal for the forward, it could see the end of his six-year unfulfilled spell in North London.

Jack Wilshere

Where Is Jack Wilshere Going? | AFTV Deadline Day | ArsenalDespite his stop-start career, Wilshere leaving would be a disappointing sight amongst Arsenal fans. The England international who endured a horrible run of injuries in North London has since been shipped out on loan to Bournemouth in a bid to reignite his career.

The signs on the south-coast have been positive, with Eddie Howe praising the 25 year-old for “transforming” his side. Though it must be said, Wilshere is yet to regain a place in the England set-up.

Unfortunately Arsenal have an excess of centre-midfielders and with Santi Cazorla still to return next season, a place for the Englishman remains unlikely.

Alexis Sanchez & Mesut Ozil

Whilst speculation concerning Alexis Sanchez’s future remains uncertain. The 28 year-old who has netted 18 times this season is being headhunted by Chelsea and Manchester City.

Both players are entering the final years of their contracts and the Gunners could look to cash in while they can.

Are there any players not in the list who you fear or who you want to be out the door? Let us know in the comments below…

    I require one person to leave AFC this summer, just one, Wenger, fuck right off, you imbecile

    I want the Arsenal fans to know this about their fucked up manager who they think is a genius, my opinion, he is an overrated wasteful nitwit, a manager who wasted millions on a socialist wage structure for second rate players, giving useless cunts 50k a week to keep their mouths shut, but the mother of all fuck ups is DIABY

    Wenger paid Diaby 264,193k a game for his holiday at AFC, came to AFC 2006 – 2015, 9 years, played 124 games, scored 14 goals at 70,000 a week times 52 weeks = 3.6 million a year times 9 years = 32.7 million quid divided by 124 games, 264,000 per game

    And this cunt Wenger quibbles about paying Sanchez and Ozil their right dues, when he wasted, butchered a quarter of a million quid a game for Diaby, let that sink into your pea brains, 264,000k a game, for a fucking crock

    ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS, a great manager my fucking arse, the biggest fucking con man to manage in world football

      Walcott has to go, he epitomizes everything that is wrong with Arsenal on the pitch, no character no fight no passion, never shows up against the big teams complete and utter 2nd class player, anyone else but Wenger would have jogged him on years ago.
      He has been living on a reputation he has never truely earned.
      Off course Wenger has to go thats a given.
