Big names at Arsenal reluctant to sign new contracts after dismal season

Some big names at Arsenal are reportedly reluctant to sign new contracts at the club after this hugely disappointing season.

The Gunners are all the way down in 9th in the Premier League table and look likely to miss out on European football next season after performing so poorly domestically and exiting the Europa League at the semi-final stage.

Arsenal may now be set to offload a number of players this summer, according to the Guardian, who add that some big name players like Hector Bellerin and Granit Xhaka are reluctant to enter into talks over extending their stays at the Emirates Stadium.

There is some more positive Arsenal transfer news in the piece, however, with no worries over Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s future for the moment.

Granit Xhaka’s Arsenal future may be in some doubt

The Gabon international has not been at his very best this season, but remains a world class player on his day and an important part of Mikel Arteta’s team.

It would certainly make Arteta’s job easier if Aubameyang stayed put while other experienced figures in the squad may move on.

    Let those big names go as they are just a bunch of losers. the only players worth of an arsenal jersey are Saka, ESR, Pepe, Tierney, Partey, Martinelli, Gabriel, and Balogun.The rest may just pack their bags for all i care

      Arsenal do not have big name players,I think the right label is senior players. Big name players make a difference for the clubs they play for, this has not been the case for Arsenal this season and hence Arsenal’s so called ‘big name players’ are a mirage.

      Arsenal needs a complete overhaul in the playing unit in order to have a team with a winning mentality, I however have my reservations whether Arteta is the man to oversee this transition if his audition is anything to go by.

        The headline said “big names” and I always only read the headlines. And there are big names… The Royal Family including the Queen Herself, and the rockband Queen, and Sir Mick Jagger, Roger Daltry, the Davis brothers of the Kinks, Lewis Hamilton… I could go on forever. Henry, Vieira and Bergkamp, are three big, big names who nowadays are related to the Dan Ek campaign for the saving of the club from owner and manager. Bless them.

    Malik, be patient. Kronk is 74 this summer. He will be leaving. And Arteta? Before 2022 he is sacked, after another wasted year. MA simply don’t know the job. He was Pep Guardiolas handyman – and he will never get closer to greatness than that.

    The younger players have done more, Lacazette is passed it now and never does enough, makes loads of fouls and misses loads of goals

  6. Patrick says:

    Arteta, had decisions on players is what brought us down. He lacks flexibilities. He is regid in his playing style. No free role player. He is in experience Coach

  7. Mateh says:

    Arsenal… Ohhhh!!! ARSENAL… since 2005…I’m tired.
