Three players who could leave and three that could come in at the Emirates Stadium before the end of the transfer window.
Arsene Wenger will still be hoping to wrap up some deals to strengthen Arsenal’s challenge for silverware this season, and seems likely to continue selling unwanted players to raise the cash to do so. So far, the likes of Andrey Arshavin, Sebastien Squillaci, Denilson and Gervinho have left the club, and here is a look at more movement that could go on this month before the transfer window closes in September.
Out: Marouane Chamakh
The Moroccan striker has been a spectacular flop in his time at Arsenal, and a deal for him to join newly-promoted side Crystal Palace looks very close to completion. The Gunners have struggled all summer to offload the misfiring 29-year-old, who has scored just three goals in the last two seasons.
Life in England had started a little more promisingly for Chamakh, who looked an astute free transfer from Bordeaux in his first few months at Arsenal. Having been one of the best players in the French league and Champions League the previous year, he found the back of the net 10 times for Wenger’s side in the first half of the 2010/11 season, though from that point onwards his confidence and form dropped dramatically.
It is hard to see what he could bring even to a side like Palace at this stage, but Arsenal fans will certainly be hoping that Ian Holloway is willing to take a gamble on him so he can finally be off the books at the Emirates.
