Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger is likely to do a bit of a spring cleaning in January when the transfer market will be opening, and will look to sell some of the players which are no longer motivated enough at Arsenal.
Rosicky is one who was often linked with a possible departure, but the French manager denied the rumours:
“Rosicky is at Arsenal and he remains at Arsenal,” Wenger said.
The most likely to leave Arsenal this January are Squillaci, Arshavin and Chamakh.
Chamakh is wanted by Bordeaux and PSG and is very likely to leave after he’s been forgotten on the bench ever since he can’t seem to bounce back into form.
Arshavin is wanted back “home” at Zenit and is frustrated about not getting a first team chance since Gervinho came at the club, and Squillaci is wanted by Sevilla. The centre-back got a bad injury and he only got Cup action ever since so he’s a certain departure in January.
The big question is not who leaves though, but who comes. Two attacking players are leaving so Wenger is likely to transfer at least one, full-backs also seem to be on the list and the biggest issue at Arsenal is who to transfer between Hazard, Gotze and Reus. What do you think?
