Genuine but funny typo - Sellback was supposed to be Wellbeck!

Thin owe could regret letting welbeck go. If we don't replace him we are very short up front and wide right for a whole season

Wellbeck is a bang average injury prone player. But we do need to replace him, just with better.

So much for Bramall's "great promise". Was never convinced with Gilmour but quite surprised with Julio's release. Good playing out from the back, solid enough without dominating for the U-23. I supposed they decided he won't be able to make the step up. Pity.

As for Wellbeck, he's been here long enough, although I agree he is very useful and a decent 3rd choice forward but with his recent horrid injury record in the past few years, it's probably the right decision.

But like everyone else, I am screaming out for real wingers who can penetrate, score and create havoc.

Surprised there weren't more players on the "released" list.

I wonder what is going to happen to Macey, Asano, Bielik, Nwakali all on loan - I hope Chambers returns to us

Strong rumours that Ospina is about to move permanently

Just need to shift Jenkinson, Mustafi, Elneny, Suarez, Monreal or Kolasinac, Mkhitaryan and Ozil

Then we should have enough room and funds for what we need

Feel Pleguezuelo should've been given more of an opportunity. He was always one of our better performers for the U23s.

Bramall was a gamble that was never likely to come off. I have to say though that when he was involved in preseason a couple of years ago, and every time I saw him for the u23s, I was never impressed. Makes me wonder what anyone saw in him in the first place.

Heard today that Bielik is going to return for preseason so they can have a look at him before making a decision.

Two more youth players will be released after their scholarship expired - Adams and Campbell.

We are stuck with these players, with Jenkinson and ELneny refused to move, happily see out their contract in comfort.

And the rest of the squad...

Nacho Monreal -2020
The Spaniard arrived at Arsenal from Malaga in 2013 and has been a huge hit at the Emirates.
Linked with La Liga club Real Sociedad in the summer, it was reported in January that the club had in fact decided to activate the clause in his contract to extend it by a further year.

Carl Jenkinson - 2020
The defender signed a five-year deal in 2015 but his future looks to be elsewhere.
Tipped to leave the club ahead of this season, his time at the Emirates could well come to an end in the summer.

Laurent Koscielny - 2020
The French defender has been a stalwart since arriving in 2010.
The 33-year-old is back following injury, but it appears that he will leave once his contract expires.

Sokratis - 2021
Signed from Borussia Dortmund in the summer, the Greek international joined the Gunners on a three-year deal.
His father confirmed in an interview that Sokratis has the option of extending his contract by a further year.
However, the player revealed at the start of the month that a future move to either China or the United States could be a real possibility.

Mesut Ozil - 2021
The German international signed a contract extension last January after well over a year’s worth of negotiations.
Ozil signed from Real Madrid in 2013 and is a hugely popular figure at the Emirates amongst fans, but his relationship with Emery has been questioned this season.
He is now the biggest earner at the club, with his new deal said to be worth up to £350,000 a week.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan - 2021
Mkhitaryan joined last January as part of the deal that saw Alexis Sanchez move to Manchester United.
He has split opinions amongst supporters, although his form has improved a lot in 2019.

Shkodran Mustafi - 2021
The German had a difficult start to life at Arsenal after arriving in 2016 and there were suggestions he could be sold last summer.
Inter Milan were heavily linked but no move materialised and Mustafi continues to be a regular for the Gunners.

Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang - 2021
Arsenal signed Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018, allowing Olivier Giroud to leave for Chelsea at the same time.
The Gabon international has provided the goals that Arsenal lost when selling Sanchez to Manchester United.


Emiliano Martinez - 2022
The goalkeeper penned a long-term deal with the club in November 2016.
The summer arrival of Leno saw him head out on loan to Reading in January.

Alexandre Lacazette - 2022
The French striker joined from Lyon in 2017 and was Arsenal’s club record signing before Aubameyang arrived in January.
Lacazette has become a very important player at the Emirates after netting some crucial goals.

Calum Chambers - 2022
The young England defender is currently on loan with Fulham after previously spending the 2016/17 season on loan at Middlesbrough.
Handed a new contract in October 2017, it came as a surprise in the summer when the ex-Southampton man was handed another new deal in July to extend his stay in the capital.


Sead Kolasinac - 2022

The Bosnian defender joined on a free transfer from Schalke ahead of the 2017/18 season.
Kolasinac missed the start of the season after picking up an injury in pre-season, but has benefited from Monreal's fitness issues.

Mohamed Elneny - 2022
Arsenal accepted an offer from Leicester City for the Egypt international in the summer of 2017 but he decided to stay at the Emirates.
He was rewarded with a new contract back in March, but is even further down the pecking order following the arrivals of two new midfield faces in the summer.

Matteo Guendouzi - 2022
The young Frenchman has made a huge impression since his move from Ligue 2 side Lorient.
Joining Emery's side on a four-year deal, Guendouzi has the option of extending his deal by a further year.


Bernd Leno - 2023
The German goalkeeper signed in the summer from Bayer Leverkusen.
He has replaced Cech as the club's No.1 after starting the season on the bench.

Hector Bellerin - 2023
The Spaniard signed a huge six-and-a-half year deal in 2016 having established himself as one of the most exciting young full-backs in world football.
Getting back to his best form under Emery, the right-back will return to action next season after sustaining a bad knee injury against Chelsea in January.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles - 2023
Having enjoyed a breakthrough season in 2017/18, the Arsenal academy product signed a new long-term deal at the Emirates last June.
Maitland-Niles was a regular on the right-hand side following Bellerin's season ending injury is expected to be a key figure for the club going forward, possibly in his favoured central midfield role.

Rob Holding - 2023

The young defender joined from Bolton in 2016 and ended his first season as a regular in the side, starting in the FA Cup final win against Chelsea.
He earned rave reviews for his performances but struggled to replicate them during his second campaign in north London.
Holding put pen-to-paper on a new deal at the start of May and forced his way into Emery's plans until a serious knee injury away at Manchester United ended his season.

Lucas Torreira - 2023
The Uruguay international sealed a move to the club in the summer from Sampdoria after impressing in Serie A.
The highly-rated midfielder penned a deal until 2023.

Granit Xhaka - 2023
Arsenal signed Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach in 2016 and so far he has divided opinion at the Emirates.
A regular in the team under Wenger and Emery, the Swiss international penned a new long-term deal last summer.


Konstantinos Mavropanos - 2023
Arsenal signed the young Greek defender from PAS Giannina in January 2018, he was the first player signed on the recommendation of former head of recruitment Sven Mislintat.

Alex Iwobi - 2023
The Nigeria international burst onto the scene during the 2015/16 and continues to be a favourite at the club.

His progress has slowed in the past year and his performances dipped, but Arsenal handed him a new long-term deal in August.
