    Players who could be gone this January

    Lots of talk again about players in and players out but here are a list of players that could leave and some who should leave!

    Mannone
    Sagna
    Santos
    Djourou
    Squillaci
    Arshavin
    Walcott
    Chamakh

    Whilst some of these players wouldn't be missed and in fact do not need replacing, there are some that do.

    If Sagna and Santos leaves then cover is paramount in the fullback positions, and as for midfield there are no real worries there but I would never say no to another Cazorla type player.

    As for Walcott and Chamakh, I think the Ox has clearly edged ahead of Walcott in a starting role and is more versatile being a two footed player.

    If these players do get sold on I can see Arsen being quite busy in a transfer window he has never really liked.

    I could possibly see another two full backs/ forward plus another keeper coming in.

    I personally think Sagna will stay so maybe just the 1 fullback but what ever happens I see January being quite productive even if it just means getting rid of players that drain on the Arsenal kitty!

    • It's nearly impossible to speculate at this stage, especially as it is very rare for teams to change dramatically during the January transfer window. It is also good to see the improvement of some of the players, that seems to have meant they have come off the list of who we might like to leave. As for those who should, or might leave. I wouldn't want Santos or Sagna on there, but the latter has begun to sound off a bit.

      My list would be:-

      Should go:

      Squilacci
      Bendtner
      Chamakh

      Might go:

      Walcott
      Arshavin
      Fabianski

      Other than that, I don't think much will change until after the end of the season now. Then again, AW could surprise us all and buy a £35m striker.....but the chances are slim.

    • Walcott/Arshavin to be sold. Lopez in:-

      AS THEO WALCOTT lies in his bed having been mangled by San Marino's keeper on Friday, the Arsenal winger's health won't be improved by what he reads in the Mirror. For the paper claims that the Gunners are lining up a bid for Atletico Madrid's Spanish striker Adrian Lopez as a direct replacement for Walcott.

      Apparently Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is increasingly unsure he wants Walcott at the Emirates and so he's started eyeing up the 24-year-old Lopez. According to the Mirror, the Spaniard is in a similar situation to Walcott after "stalling on a new deal" at Madrid.
