Arsene Wenger will this summer conduct a major squad clear-out as he prepares to add to his transfer fund budget from sales and more crucially help to meet the wage demands of three crucial members of his first team squad who are still yet to agree new contracts.
Senior Gunners stars Robin Van Persie, Theo Walcott and Alex Song all have a year to run on their current deals and will all look to secure a significant improvement on their current salaries which in turn will lead to other members of the Emirates Stadium playing staff looking for improved deals in line with their team-mates.
The emphasise therefore is towards quality over quantity and as such ten members of Wenger’s squad are reportedly being made available to any prospective suitors to help balance the books.
Having already secured the signing of Koln and Germany attacker Lukas Podolski Wenger will turn his attentions to more possible additions to help his North London side challenge for major honours and end a seven year silverware drought. The Arsenal manager will be handed a modest transfer budget by the club’s board, who in turn will insist that the shortfall in expenditure be made up from the sales of players.
The ten players who will be set for possible exits include the following.
Moroccan has been a huge disappointment for the majority of the two seasons he has been at Arsenal and Wenger is ready to offload the 28 year old and is looking to garner around £5m from the sale of a player who cost the club nothing but is on a fairly hefty pay package.
