Busy summer ahead for Emirates Stadium side.
Walcott faces chop in mass Arsenal clear-out with Van Persie still wavering on new deal
Arsene Wenger is running out of patience with Theo Walcott and could sell the England forward in a summer clear-out.
Arsenal’s humiliating 4-0 defeat by AC Milan on Wednesday night will have far-reaching consequences as the Gunners manager prepares to wield the axe, with Walcott the highest-profile player on his radar.

There is growing speculation that Arsene Wenger is not a happy man and the Emirates Stadium boss apparently read his players the riot act following their meek 4-0 drubbing in Milan.
Winger Theo Walcott is perhaps the most high-profile of those named by the Daily Mail as being set for a Gunners departure and there is no doubt that the England international is a frustrating player to watch. The former Southampton man clearly has the ability and potential to be a world beater but is unable to consistently perform at the highest level.
The youngster was hauled off at half-time in Milan and with teenager Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain getting rave reviews Wenger may feel that if a decent offer came in for the 22 year old then it may well be considered, not least as come the summer he will have just one year left on his current contract.
Walcott is just one of half a dozen players said to be set for an Arsenal exit, here are the rest, as well as the three big name stars that the Daily Mail believe Wenger is ready to make moves for.
