6 Players set to leave Arsenal in the January transfer window

The Gunners have a handful of players whose contracts are coming to an end and who may be forced to go sooner than expected.

The January transfer window has typically been a time when Arsenal looks to fix holes in the squad or bring in players to cover for injured players.

 

Prices are normally higher since clubs are aware that this is an important time of year and many teams are hesitant to let players depart halfway through the season.

However, there will always be squad players who want to go, and young players might be sent out on loan to obtain more experience early in their careers

The following are five players that could leave the club permanently or on loan in January.

 

 Alex Lacazette,

The Frenchman’s current contract runs out in the summer of 2022, and sources close to the player have stated that he has no plans to extend it.

Lacazette was available for sale during the summer transfer season, but Arsenal struggled to offload the 30-year-old due to his astronomically high wages.

Although football, Roma and Atletico Madrid were among the clubs associated with Lacazette.

According to reports in London, neither team has made a formal offer to the Gunners.

With a number of clubs vying for the Frenchman’s signature, he might sign a pre-contract with a foreign squad as early as January.

 

Eddie Nketiah 

Nketiah, who has a deal that expires next summer, is keeping his options open ahead of the January transfer window.

West Ham and Crystal Palace had previously expressed interest in the England youth, but no solid proposals have materialized.

Bernd Leno 

Aaron Ramsdale has taken Leno’s goalkeeping spot, and Leno’s days at Arsenal are numbered.

The German goalkeeper wants to leave Arsenal, and January appears to be the ideal time for a transfer to take place.

 Sead Kolasinac

Kolasinac was close to joining Fenerbahce this summer, and his contract is set to expire in June 2022.

Arsenal’s left defender is out of favor, and manager Mikel Arteta does not consider him a first-choice option.

Mohamed Elneny

Last summer, the Egyptian international was on the verge of leaving Arsenal, with Besiktas and Galatasaray showing interest.

He’ll be abroad for the Africa Cup of Nations in January, but with his contract set to expire next summer, the Turkish giants are anticipated to be back in the market for him.

 

Balogun, Folarin (loan)

Balogun signed a new contract with Emirates Stadium last summer, and his long-term future remains with the club.

With his playing time-limited, a loan move would be beneficial to both the club and the player.
