4 Arsenal players who could leave the Emirates this summer

4 Arsenal players who could leave the Emirates this summer

Arsenal have had a superb but ultimately frustrating season, with the Gunners throwing away the Premier League title at the very last moment.

Having led the way for the majority of the campaign, their 3-0 loss to Brighton on Sunday looks certain to have handed the title to Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola’s side now need just one victory from their final three league matches to clinch the Premier League trophy.

Manager Mikel Arteta and all of the fans will be gutted by the current situation, but there should also be huge pride and confidence taken from how far they have progressed in a small matter of time.

Many fans were calling for the manager to be sacked from the Emirates dugout not so long ago, with the former midfielder now an Arsenal hero.

Their talented young squad have impressed this season, but it seems that the bigger and more talented squad of Man City will come out on top, leaving Arteta with no choice but to shake things up in North London this summer.

The Spaniard will most certainly turn to the transfer window to bring in several new faces, but that will also mean a handful of exits at the end of the season.

4 Arsenal players who could leave this summer

Rob Holding

Rob Holding has found it difficult to land a starting role at the back given the strong partnership formed between William Saliba and Gabriel, with the reserve centre-back only really being called upon when either of the first-choice duo is unavailable due to injury.

Holding will perhaps want a regular playing spot elsewhere, and given how he has impressed when given the chance on the pitch, he may just have a few suitors this summer.

Kieran Tierney

Another defender that has found it hard to earn Arteta’s trust is Kieran Tierney, but that is largely because the left-back has constantly struggled with injury ever since his exciting transfer from Scottish giants Celtic.

Tierney has also found it hard to compete with Oleksandr Zinchenko for a starting spot at full-back, with the former Man City man excelling both defensively and offensively for Arsenal this season.

Reiss Nelson

Young attacker Reiss Nelson is another who has struggled for minutes under Arteta this season, with the 23-year-old limited to just 10 Premier League matches, where he has scored three times and registered two assists.

Given those impressive statistics in his limited time on the pitch, a handful of clubs look very likely of battling it out for his signature this summer, with the youngster unfortunately playing second fiddle to a number of very talented attacking Arsenal players.


Eddie Nketiah

Again, like Nelson, Eddie Nketiah has largely been forced to watch on from the sidelines at the Emirates this season, largely due to the presence of first-choice striker Gabriel Jesus, who has enjoyed a superb campaign despite his lengthy injury.

But even with that injury, Nketiah was overlooked for a starting position, with Arsenal boss Arteta instead opting for fellow attacker Leandro Trossard in an unfamiliar central role. That situation alone may lead to Nketiah forcing through a summer exit in order to be more appreciated elsewhere.
