The Seven Player Arsenal may never play again.

ARSENAL are set for a busy transfer window this summer, with a slew of players expected to leave the club.

Arsenal have already lost the services of their long-serving midfielder Aaron Ramsey, who has signed a lucrative deal with Italian champions Juventus.

England international Danny Welbeck will also leave the north Londoners at the end season following the expiration of his contract.

Veteran goalkeeper Petr Cech is also set for the exit door and will hang up his gloves at the end of the campaign.

A further SEVEN players are in line to leave the Emirates at the end of the season, all of whom you can see below:

Stephan Lichtsteiner

Stephan Lichtsteiner’s time with Arsenalseems close to coming to an end.

The Switzerland international has struggled for first-team football in his debut season in England and has fallen behind Ainsley Maitland-Niles in the pecking order.

Arsenal are said to have declined the option to extend the former Juventus man’s contract, so don’t be surprised to see him ushered out of the door.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has struggled to replicate the scintillating form which prompted Manchester United to splash out £26million to acquire his services in July 2016.

His January 2018 move to the Emirates hasn’t gone to plan, though, so his future in Unai Emery’s side is well and truly up in the air.

Shkodran Mustafi

Shkodran Mustafi has endured a torrid time at the heart of Arsenal’s defence this season and has been at fault for several goals.

The Germany international has repeatedly shown his ineptitude this campaign, much to the frustration of many Gunners fans.

So his name will almost certainly be on Emery’s list of players to offload.

Laurent Koscielny

Arsenal’s second longest-serving player’s days at the Emirates seem to be numbered.

Laurent Koscielny has been plagued by injury for the last two seasons and has been restricted to a mere 57 appearances.

And with just 12 months remaining on his current contract, Emery could decide to give him the boot.

Nacho Monreal

Nacho Monreal is currently in the final year of his contract with Arsenal.

It’s understood there is a clause in his deal which will allow the Gunners to extend his stay by a further 12 months.

However, it’s currently unknown if the club has taken up that option.

If not, the former Malaga man will be on his way out of the Emirates.

Mesut Ozil

Mesut Ozil’s future at Arsenal has been up in the air for a number of months now.

Emery has dropped the former Germany international multiple times and is rumoured to have a rocky relationship with the 30-year-old.

Ozil is Arsenal’s highest earner and it’s understood the club are keen to get him off the wage bill this summer. So there’s a very real possibility the Europa League final will be the ex-Real Madrid man’s final game for the club.

Mohamed Elneny

Egypt international Mohamed Eleny has had a season to forget under Emery.

The former FC Basel man has spent the majority of the season warming the bench, making a total of 17 appearances.

And with Granit Xhaka being Emery’s go-to defensive midfielder and Matteo Guendouzi ahead of him in the pecking order, the future looks bleak for the 26-year-old.
