Arsenal are set for a major overhaul in the summer with six players of the British core likely to make their way out of the club. Kieran Gibbs, Aaron Ramsey, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Calum Chambers, Theo Walcott and Carl Jenkinson will have their contracts reviewed as Arsene Wenger will look to raise money to bring in new talent who can add more zeal to their title challenge.
According to the Daily Mail, Wenger is dissatisfied with the performance of his British players, on whom he had vested much faith and tied them to long term contracts. Gibbs is likely to leave after the season, as he has given up his starting position to Nacho Monreal and would want to move in search of first team football.
Oxlade-Chamberlain is another player who has struggled for form all season, coupled with a myriad of injuries, which has not helped him regain his charm. Walcott, who signed a long-term contract in 2015, went from being Arsenal's first choice striker to starting from the bench and is currently behind Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck in the pecking order.
Aaron Ramsey has also missed a lot of action due to injury and has failed to impress in the midfield, where Wenger is already looking for reinforcements. Mohamed Elneny signed for the Gunners in January and the north London club have already made a bid for Granit Xhaka. The Welsh international has mostly been deployed on the right when he is available, which is not his favoured position.
Carl Jenkinson, who is out for the entire season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury is another player who has found himself out of favour while Calum Chambers has struggled to get a game in his preferred centre-back role.
However, Jack Wilshere is almost certain to stay at the club beyond the summer, despite having missed almost the entire campaign with a broken fibula. The England international is finally back in full training and played against Newcastle in an U-21 game at the Emirates on 8 April.
