Blood Demon: Player by player – who will be leaving Arsenal this summer?

Posted on March 27, 2012 by Nitesh

Arsenal has successfully bought Thomas Eisfeld this window. We have 7 first team players coming back from loan and 1 player going back to his club. In all, we will have 35 player(including Eisfeld) in the summer fighting for a place in the first team. If we want to buy more players we will have to sell some too, to free up some space and reduce the wages. So the big question is, who will be leaving??

Manuel Almunia – With Szczesny appointed as the first choice keeper this season, Almunia has gone down to third choice keeper and with the return of Mannone, forth choice keeper. Almunia has not played even one game for Arsenal this season. It is clear that he wont be playing for Arsenal again.

Sebastien Squillaci – With the arrival of the German giant Per Mertesacker, Squillaci had gone down to forth choice center back. And with the reserve team captain Ignasi Miquel looking promising, he has gone down to fifth choice center back. Although Squillaci has played some League Cup games, Wenger used youngsters instead of Squillaci in our defensive crisis suggesting that he wont be playing for Arsenal again.

Andrey Arshavin – The Russian captain has been out of form this season and hasn’t started much games. He has been low on confidence. The booing at the game against Manchester United just adds to the occasion. He had clearly stated that he will be leaving if he is not give many games. He is currently out on loan, and his future will be decided by his performances at Zenit.

Carlos Vela – Vela is out on loan to Real Sociedad and they have expressed their intention of a permanent deal. So Vela has high chances ofleaving in the summer.

Nicklas Bendtner – The self proclaimed “Best Striker in the World” has expressed his desire of leaving Arsenal and joining a team playing in the Champions Leagues this summer. It is more than clear that he will be leaving Arsenal in the summer.

Denilson – He is currently out on loan to Sao Paulo and is happy in Brazil. So there is 99.99 percent chance of him leaving in the summer.

Abou Diaby – Although a great talent, Diaby’s career at Arsenal is filled with injuries. Wenger has kept faith in him so far, but no one knows for how long this will go on. If Diaby doesn’t gather his laces by summer, he MIGHT be leaving.

Ju-Young Park – Park was bought by Wenger in the last summer, but he has only played a few League Cup games and only made one appearance in the Premier League. His agent has said that if he is not given playing time he will be looking for chances at other clubs.

So there are a possible 8 players leaving in the summer, freeing up some space to bring in the likes of Podolski, Vertonghen, Gotze, M’Villa etc…

So who do you see leaving and joining us in the summer?

    In Wenger I Trust…he will figure out the best options because he is the most qualified to do so. Personally, I would like to see a couple of our young reserve players promoted into the spots of denilson and squidface. For example, Lansbury and Miquel.

    But those of you who think we are going to see Podolski, Vertonghen, Gotze and M’villa come in…WAKE UP! Why would gotze be brought in? so that wilshere can sit on the bench? or maybe gotze on the bench? WAKE UP! Why would M’Villa be brought in? so that song could sit on the bench? so that Conquelin can’t break into the first team? so that M’villa could sit on the bench? WAKE UP!
    Podolski is the only signing that would make sense because Arshavin is leaving, otherwise, you’re just wanting to spend money like immature children in a toy store, just for the sake of spending money. Look at liverpool for example, where did spending tons on money get them? Further into debt, and they’re in a terrible predicament. Loosing to wigan, really?

        to be completely honest, and maybe a bit harsh, squillachi never earned the title of “Arsenal player”, he is the only one that I seriously dislike with a passion because he is truly a horrible footballer

      M’Vila would be a fantastic signing! Song isn’t an out and out defensive midfielder, he likes to get forward and has some great skills getting 8 great assists this season. M’Vila is an absoloute beast of a player. Song could blossom. WAKE UP!

    I agree with jason,seems like people dont actualy put thought into the areas that need strengthening as we have lots of players currently and cuming up the reserves,Pedro for left back so forget about baines,we can only get 1 stricker as Afobe,Wellington and J Cambell are gud young strickers,Bartley might just return to help out 4 all the positions vertogen can play,but maybe he myt come.Gotze and Hazard are no go’s,they wont be bought.Anyone who thinks we dont have a good squad should luk at what our current squad has done from the moment the new signings adapted to the team,October.We have collected the same amount of points as the manchester clubs,even with our injury issues while even going further than them both in Europe,so without that early season slump we would have been in the title race if not leading it.

    Vermaelen koscielny mertesacker djourou by my counting squillaci is already behind them making him 5th choice now. bartley and miqel will probably both be a head of him in the summer hoyte brislen-hall and probably botelho will be.joining him in leaving this summer. almunia fabianski and mcdermott are all unhappy at the club. szcesney martinez not so. i expect the 3 mentioned to all leave and possibly mannone and shea too.

    in midfield denilson benayoun eastmond will all go and possibly diaby and lansbury.

    park chamakh arshavin bendtner vela murphy will all leave this summer

    Don’t think the main problem is who would and would not leave rather which clubs will buy them. For instance Bendthner wants to go to a club playing in UCL, so which of them will come for him (I like the lad though, jst trying to make a point). Once offers come for them I’m sure Je prof knows good business

    This man has forgotten the issues of injuries.Once you have M’villa it does not means that he will play throughout the league.Sometimes we need to rotate them so as to give them a rest,just see what Man U does. If you have only first 11,at the end of the league players becomes so tired.Another advantage of having many good players in a similar number,the team increases competition of the number,i.e each player will plays hard to make sure that he becomes regular player.

    To leave- Almunia, Squilaci, Denilson, Arshavin, Vela, Bendtner, Chamakh& Park. Promote Miquel, Ryo , Yennaris & Conqulin. Buy Poldoski & Vertongen. 4get the rest! Our mid is full jst like Arsene said earlier; 1st choice – Song, Rosiky, Wilshere. 2nd – Conqulin, Arteta, Ramsey & Diaby. If we hd Vrtogn we wldnt be woried of Koscelny’s yelws or scare! Thus nxt season 1st 11- Szszcny, Tv5, Kos, Sagna,Gibbs mid- Song, Wilshere, Rosicky. Front- Theo/OX, Rvp, Pold/Gervinho. CUP games – Fab/Mannone, Miquel,DJ, Per’ Mtz,Yenneris, Santos, Frim/Diaby/Conqulin, Arteta, Ramsey, Ox, Ryo, Campel/Afobe!+ the cvr plyrs in tm A!!

    Don’t forget that AlexSong and Carl Jenkinson can play centre-half very well. So Squillaci could be leaving.

    At the end of the day, it’s up to a player if he joins another Club. He can choose to stay at Arsenal and pick up his weekly wage while winding down his contract, then leave on a Bosman. This is what Almunia will do and Bebdtner will do if deals aren’t made in their favour.

    Now Ju-Young Park has had his national service postponed by another 10 years, he may actually be staying.

    Diaby is a top favourite player of Wenger. He really rates the guy. We have had other perma-crocked players like Van Persie, Walcott, Gibbs, Rosicky and they were kept at the club. Personally I can’t imagine Diaby being moved. He’s a great player too.

    Denilson is a very good player who has been played out of position alot. His leaving will depend on how much he likes it back in Brazil. With the new formation at Arsenal since Fabregas has left, I can see Denilson coming back and doing well in his natural position. He could be another Martin Keown, coming back better than when he left.

    Off-loading: Almunia, Bendter, Chamakh, Squillaci, Vela, Denilson

    Hopefully Arsene brings in 1 or 2 solid players, I’d like to see Vertongen and Podolski, Wilshere and Diaby will be back and I think Park will get chances as well.

    It would save a lot of speculation by supporters if we knew the contract duration of the 25 man squad, after all it`s no use saying X-Y-Z should leave if they are contract bound. We don`t need to know their salaries just the duration of their contract. Is theis information readily available?

    Denilson is the next Xavi and you want him to leave?I realy hope he comes back because if played in the right position he can dictate any game.And for all those who say he only makes sideways passes,thats the reason our fullbacks are important to arsenal,when we didnt have them we couldnt spread the play and it ended up in us having to force our way through the middle.

    Replacements:
    GK: Shea, Martinez
    CB: Bartley, Vertonghen, Miquel
    LB: Bothelo
    MC: M’vila, Ozzy, Lansbury, Yennaris
    Wings: Ryo, one new signing and maybe Welington, Galindo?
    ST: Podolsky, Matias Suarez, Benik Afobe, Campbell(if he gets the WP)

    Besides the 8 above, I believe Chemackh, manonne, fabiansky, Djourou can all be sold if the right offer comes in. Also Watt, Eastmond, Hajrovic, Angha and a few others from reserved will be sold in order to free up some space and gather som money.

    We just need a forward player and that’s Podolski; a back-up keeper because the remaining ones are bad.

    We already have loads of players. What we do need to do is sell those players you mentioned. I think Bendtner is a lot better option than anybody we have presently and if he can get his attitude right, I’d keep him. Him and Park would be nice back-ups for RVP and Podolski.

    sell: Almunia, Fabianski, Mannone. Squid. Park, Chamakh, Bendtner.
    i dont want Vela or Denilson to leave, they’re still very young and still could make it at arsenal, i rate diaby (when he plays)i dont think we actually need to sign many players, possibly Vertonghen, but definitaly Podolski, got so much fresh talent in that reserve + youth squad BIG UP MR BANFIELD + MR WENGER

    Chamack has not played badly once this season! He is a good player who never starts same as djourou. They dont deserve to be sold! Look at how many where calling for Rosicky’s head before he got a decent run of games
