Arsene Wenger is set to offload two players this week after reaching the limit on non-homegrown players.
Alexandre Lacazette took Arsenal’s quota to 17 foreign players which is the maximum allowed in any Premier League squad.
But Arsenal fans need not worry that will prevent them from making another signing with Monaco’s Thomas Lemar and Leicester winger Riyah Mahrez still in their sights.
Arsenal are set to allow misfit forward Lucas Perez return to Deportivo La Coruna after his frustrating stint at the Emirates.

It is also understood out-of-favour Mathieu Debuchy is also likely to miss Arsenal’s pre-season tour to sort out his future.

Debuchy has one year left on his current contract and may even be granted a free transfer.
Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud is also a target for West Ham and Everton and there could yet be more comings and goings at the Emirates.

Foreign players to leave:

1 - Perez
2 - Debuchy
3 - Alexis?
4 - Ozil?
5 - Coquelin?

Perez. He's the only that seems to want to play football and isn't happy just collecting wages. Others don't want to take pay cuts which is why debuchy is still here.
Lucas looked a better overall footballer compared to lacazette. I'm just hoping lacazette gets us goals.. He aint gonna do much else

I feel that Perez if given a run can play the Alexis role with his high work rate and smart running behind the opposition defence. Perez is a better passer of the ball than Alexis but Alexis scares the @#$%& out of opposing defence with his direct dribbling. Only concern with Perez I have is he is easily injured compared to Alexis who is like the Energizer Bunny.

Unless we are blind, Wenger must have seen something in Perez which he deemed not good enough to start at Arsenal.

Debuchy, Perez, Ospina, and Elneny should be sold. If we need more then throw Gabriel in there too.



"A club is a union between players, supporters and directors". - Wenger.
Arsene wenger has done an absolutely masterful job within the constraints he has... Every single year, he has outperformed our spending every single year he has been manager. It is extraordinary. -Gazides.

Going back to the list I compiled in another thread, these are the players currently contracted to the club that are "over 21" and would need to be registered in our 25 man squad in order to be eligible to play. For the 2017-18 season, players born before 1st January 1996 would class as "over 21".

Goalkeepers

1 - Petr Cech.
2 - David Ospina.
3 - Wojciech Szczensy (HG*).
4 - Emi Martinez (HG*).
5 - Matt Macey (HG).

Left Backs

6 - Sead Kolasinac.
7 - Nacho Monreal.
8 - Kieran Gibbs (HG).

Centre Backs

9 - Laurent Koscielny.
10 - Shkodran Mustafi.
11 - Per Mertesacker.
12 - Rob Holding (HG).
13 - Gabriel.
14 - Calum Chambers (HG).

Right Backs

15 - Hector Bellerin (HG*).
16 - Mathieu Debuchy.
17 - Carl Jenkinson (HG).

Central Midfielders

18 - Aaron Ramsey (HG).
19 - Granit Xhaka.
20 - Santi Cazorla.
21 - Francis Coquelin (HG*).
22 - Jack Wilshere (HG).
23 - Mohamed Elneny.

Attacking Midfielders

24 - Mesut Ozil.
25 - Jon Toral (HG*).

Wide Midfielders

26 - Alexis.
27 - Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (HG).
28 - Theo Walcott (HG).
29 - Lucas.
30 - Joel Campbell.

Forwards

31 - Alexandre Lacazette.
32 - Olivier Giroud.
33 - Danny Welbeck (HG).
34 - Chuba Akpom (HG).

HG = Homegrown.

HG* = Homegrown under current ruling but may lose homegrown status under the newly proposed ruling, though it isn't clear if/ when that will come into effect.

Notable U21s include Krystian Bielik, Julio Pleguezuelo, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Alex Iwobi.


So essentially we need to lose 9 players from this current list, plus more if we wish to make anymore signings.

Frightening that the amount of dross that Wenger had accumulated since 2013.
11 players to lose for a 25-man squad:

1 - Ospina
2 - Szczesny
3 - Debuchy
4 - Jenkinson
5 - WIlshere (may not given a number until January?)
6 - Cazorla ( out of squad and given a number in January?)
7 - Joel Campbell
8 - Akpom
9 - Lucas
10- Jon Toral - make way for Mahrez or Lemar?

11- Martinez or Macey make way for a new goalie?

12- Alexis make way for new ACM?
