Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is reportedly ready to swing the axe and cut his Emirates squad drastically in the summer as he looks to freshen things up at the North London club. A number of his first team squad have under performed this term and the Frenchman is ready to conduct a clear out when the season comes to an end, unless the offending parties can earn the praise of the Gunners manager before it’s too late.
Spanish keeper Manuel Almunia may find himself surprisingly back in with a shot of impressing Wenger after seemingly come to the end of his six and a half year spell at the Emirates. Now that Lukasz Fabianski has suffered an injury that will see him out for the remainder of the season and with Vito Mannone still very much learning the ropes on loan at Hull City, it is now just the 33 year old Pamplona born goalie and young Pole Wojciech Szczesny holding the fort. However it is still likely that come the end of the season the former Celta Vigo man will more than likely be on his way.
Tomas Rosicky has had an up and down season this term and though he signed a new deal a year it is reported that Aston Villa may make an offer for the Czech international and that Wenger may well allow the 30 year old to leave.
Emmanuel Eboue, similarly to Rosicky is by no means a first team regular and the Ivory Coast international has been linked with interest from Italy and may be on his way to Serie A in the summer. Nicklas Bendtner was reportedly close to leave Arsenal in January as the young Danish international apparently had something of a falling out with Arsene Wenger about his lack of first team options and the 23 year old may also look to be heading for Italy in the search of regular first team football.
Mexican international Carlos Vela is currently on loan at West Brom and appears no nearer to first team football at Arsenal and has made just three Premier League starts in his entire time at the club and is the subject of keen interest from Atletico Madrid and Valencia.
Perhaps the biggest player said to be potentially exit bound is Russian playmaker Andrei Arshavin who has been out of sorts all season, putting in consistently poor performances that led to the former Zenit man being dropped from the first team amid rumours of homesickness.
A lot of Arsene Wenger’s summer plans hinge on both what these seven players achieve come end of May and also whether Arsenal have ended their long silverware drought and if these issues are not resolved then he will feel he has no choice other than to make major changes at the club in order to secure much needed success.
