Arsenal May Face Summer Exodus As Several First-Team Players’ Futures Remain In Doubt

Arsenal are facing a bit of mass exodus of their top performers this summer as problems increase for Arsene Wenger.

Mesut Ozil has already been offered a new contract worth more than £200,000 a week but there are growing tensions that he may reject it.

The German midfielder, whose current deal ends this season, is yet to agree on an extension, although the club hierarchy is still hopeful they will sort it out. But as the current situation stands the Gunners may listen to offers for the former Real Madrid play maker this summer to avoid losing him for nothing next year.

And in a further blow, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has only 15 months left on his current deal, is the latest first-team player to seriously consider his future with the north Londoners ahead of next season, according to The Telegraph.

Despite the humiliating 5-1 defeat to Bayern, the 23-year-old impressed in a central midfield role. But news of his uncertain future will no doubt alert the Premier League rivals.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has been a big fan of Oxlade-Chamberlain, and adding the former Southampton man to his wealth of attacking ranks would be an intriguing proposition for the Portuguese.

Pep Guardiola considered a move for the Arsenal star last season and will be interested again this summer.

Also, Arsenal haven’t opened talks with Jack Wilshere yet – who is right now on loan at Bournemouth – over a new contract despite entering the final 12 months of his contract this summer.

Wenger may have already resigned to losing Alexis Sanchez, with the star attacker refusing to sign a new deal worth £180,000 a week.

Lucas Perez is another name among the possible summer departures who is ready to quit the club due to a lack of regular football since joining from Deportivo La Coruna in August, while goalkeeper David Ospina is also keen to taste regular football.
