Danish international Nicklas Bendtner is set to leave the Emirates for good.
After failure to make himself a regular on Arsenal's first team, Bendtner grew frustrated with his failure and has decided to leave Arsenal.
The money gained from this transfer will aid Wenger's plan for more additions, in preparation for a Van Persie departure.

With attacking midfielder Carzola's team, Malaga, faces serious financial troubles, Carzola may be moving to the EPL next season.
Wenger was interested in picking up the Spanish international a year ago from Villareal, but Malaga bought him for 17.5 million pounds.
Yet as Carzola prepares for a summer move, it could only cost 10 million pounds.
Arsenal's rivals, Spurs, have prepared their own bid for Carzola.
The 27 year-old would be one of many additions to the team this summer.
M'Baye Niang plays for the Ligue 2 team, Caen, and Arsenal are hoping to sign the teenager.
Niang impressed Arsenal scouts during his tryout.
Arsenal is willing to pay six million pounds for the teenager, but both Tottenham and Manchester City are also in the running.
As Caen want more than the six million Arsenal is offering and considering Wenger traditional transfer window strategies, they may miss out on this opportunity.

While many, myself included, grow weary of the constant transfer drama surrounding Robin van Persie, it is hard to avoid continuing it's coverage.
The latest news surrounding the Dutchman is as follows.
Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has forbade the striker from playing on Arsenal summer Asia tour. He will continue training in London while his teammates are abroad.
In other news, Manchester United are the frontrunners for van Persie. United manager, Ferguson, believes that the 2012 EPL runner-ups have nearly won the race for the player. He is confident that Robin will snub deals from Italian champions Juventus and Manchester City.
The sheer thought of Rooney and RVP, even with them having arguably reached their peak, is frightening. Two of the most prolific strikers in the world would be together on the same team.
