Which Arsenal stars will STAY and which will GO in the post-Arsene Wenger regime?
Arsene Wenger’s imminent departure will herald the start of a new era at Arsenal.
But how many of the club’s current squad deserve an opportunity to be part of the Gunners’ next chapter?
Here, Sportsmail examines the chances of those who featured against West Ham.
David Ospina – Unlikely to be Arsenal No 1 under the new manager. He’s twice come close to leaving the club due to his lack of football. He may finally get his wish. Out.
Hector Bellerin – Has potential to be one of the world’s leading right-backs but his progress has stunted over the past 12 months. But he can thrive under a new coach. Stay.
Shkodran Mustafi – The club’s most expensive defender started his Arsenal career well. But his performances have deteriorated badly. Arsenal were open to selling him last summer. Could easily be part of a summer cull. Out.
Laurent Koscielny – Is having to be nursed through the season because of a chronic Achilles problem. But when he plays, Arsenal look a far sturdier outfit. Stay.
Nacho Monreal – His attitude has been exemplary. He cares, and he shows it. A new left-back will be a priority this summer, but the Spaniard deserves a chance to stake his claim. Particularly if he keeps scoring goals like he did today. Stay.
Mohamed Elneny – Has been a bit-part player since his arrival from Basel. He will continue to be a bit-part player in the new regime. But having just signed a new contract, you’d imagine he won’t be leaving anytime soon. Stay.
Granit Xhaka – Flattered to deceive so often since his arrival, but his performances have improved somewhat in recent months. Has the ability to dictate the pace of games. Has a future at the club. Stay.
Aaron Ramsey – Has shown a reluctance to sign a new deal. Will that change now Wenger’s leaving? Quite possibly. It should be the next manager’s priority to get the midfielder sign up. Stay.
Alex Iwobi – His career has petered out since bursting onto the scene. Bags of potential but needs something to reignite his career. A new manager could do the trick. Stay.
Alexandre Lacazette – Has found his place under threat by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in recent weeks. But his goals underline why Arsenal will not give up on their £52million signing so quickly. Stay.
Danny Welbeck – Like Ramsey, has just 12 months left on his contract. Looks to be over his injury woes, but is that enough to convince Arsenal to offer him the sort of deal he’s looking for? Out.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles – Looks to have the raw materials of a good central midfield player. The club want their new manager to show faith in Arsenal’s youth stars. Maitland-Niles is one of he brightest coming through. Stay.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – Another goal for the club’s record signing. Will be have an integral role to play during the post-Wenger season. Stay.
Calum Chambers – The club will look to sign at least one new centre-back this summer. Chambers needs to be playing regularly. Could be one that leaves. Out.
