According to SkySports, Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey will leave the club at the end of the season on a free transer, after it was confirmed that he would not be offered a new contract.
The Welshman has been a lynchpin in the Arsenal midfield since joining from Cardiff a decade ago, going on to win three FA Cups, two Community Shields, and receiving the Arsenal Player of the Season Award twice.
However, the 27-year-old is seen as surplus to requirements under Unai Emery and will be looking for a new club.
So, with all this in mind, we take a look at which other players may leave Anfield to pursue careers at other clubs…
Like Ramsey, Danny Welbeck has been a tremendous servant to Arsenal since joining from Man United in 2014. He has played over 100 games for The Gunners but has seen his playing time limited as of late.
The arrival of Frenchman Alexandre Lacazette last summer, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in January this year has seen Welbeck become the club’s third-choice striker. He has been deployed on the wing subsequently, and rarely starts in the Premier League.
However, whenever he plays, he puts in a great shift and is impressive for the club, meaning he can still play at the highest level, and there must be a huge host of clubs that are interested in him.
Therefore, it makes sense that Welbeck decides to ply his trade elsewhere, as, at the age of 27, he still has plenty to give.
Sead Kolašinac was signed by Arsenal last summer as the answer to the club’s defensive woes in recent years. A physically formidable, versatile defender was just what the club were lacking, and this looked to be the man to and grit to a notoriously feeble Arsenal defence.
He started well in north London, but the Bosnia and Herzegovina international’s flaws grew increasingly apparent as the season developed. He was shown to be cumbersome and unable to handle quick defenders and eventually struggled to make the Arsenal team.
That has continued this season as he looks severely out of favour under Emery, and should definitely look for an exit.
