Arsenal could be set for a clear out in the summer transfer window with players being sold and being replaced by better ones. Fringe players could also be sold to make funds and free up the wage bill.

Here are the five players that could leave Arsenal in the next transfer window:

1. Hector Bellerin

Bellerin has been linked with an exit this past week with Juventus, PSG and Barcelona all registering interest in the Spanish right-back.

The Gunners are seriously considering letting go of Bellerin who has been at Arsenal since 2011. Bellerin used to have blistering speed, sharpness and a lively display but ever since he recovered from a knee injury that ruled him out for close to a year, he has been average.

Arsenal would accept an offer in the region of €30m for the right-back and replace him with a better player.

2. Alexandre Lacazette

Laca’s contract will be expiring in 2022 which means Arsenal should either renew his contract soon or consider cashing in on him otherwise risk losing him for free.

The 29-year old has scored 11 times for Arsenal this season and is their top scorer in the League with 9 goals. But of recent Arteta has opted to start Aubameyang as his central striker leaving Lacazette on the bench.

Laca may opt to leave rather than extending his contract and Arsenal could sign a younger centre-forward as his replacement.

3. Eddie Nketiah

Nketiah may choose to quit Arsenal since he has been deprived of playing time on the field. The 21-year-old may want to save his career and look elsewhere for regular football.

The English youngster hasn’t been so impressive and as players like Martinelli continue to be left aside, this shows how difficult it is to get into the Arsenal team. Nketiah could fetch Arsenal up to £15m.

4. Reiss Nelson

Nelson failed to secure a loan move away from Arsenal during the January transfer window and has now been relegated to the U23’s squad.

The 21-year-old is unfortunate to play in positions that are highly competed for. Arteta has even opted to give minutes to Willian who has been badly out of form which shows how far behind Reiss has fallen.

At his age he may want to seek a move away and save his career.

5. Matteo Guendouzi

Out on loan at Hertha Berlin, Guendouzi has continued to show his bad boy character in Germany. He isn’t a bad player, he could have a bright future. But Arteta made it clear he wants players that are 100% committed to the culture.

Guendouzi’s issues are mainly with his temper and behaviour, Arteta may not be the manager who knows how to handle such players and may decide to sell him off.
