Arsenal Transfers: Potential Exits Before the Summer Window Closes
Arsenal supporters crave signings. With just two weeks of the transfer window remaining, Arsenal fans' focus is understandably on who might come join the club.
However, several players may yet leave the club. Incredible though it may seem, Arsenal's paper-thin squad could still get thinner.
Go to the next slide to discover which players might leave Arsenal before the end of this transfer window.
It was something of a shock to see Emmanuel Frimpong on the bench for Arsenal's opening day encounter with Aston Villa.
Frimpong has spent most of the last two seasons either on loan or on the treatment table. Two separate cruciate ligament injuries and unconvincing loan spells at Wolves, Charlton and Fulham appeared to have called time on his Arsenal career. The Daily Mail even speculated that he could be allowed to join the Cottagers for free.
That hasn't come to pass, but it's surely just a matter of time until Frimpong is allowed to leave and find a permanent home for his tenacious tackling.
Where on Earth is Park Chu-Young?
Park has ostensibly returned from an unsuccessful loan spell with Spanish side Celta Vigo. However, despite being listed as a member of the Arsenal squad, he was not spotted in any preseason fixture.
Park has been made exempt from national military service after winning a bronze medal in the London 2012 Olympics. However, it seems he will be forced to resume football service away from the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal would like to sell Nicklas Bendtner. Finding a club prepared to match his wage demands will be the tricky part, though.
According to the Express, La Liga outfit Malaga still hope to persuade Bendtner to move to Spain. The Dane ought to jump at the chance, as few other teams will gamble on a player with a history of fitness and attitude problems.
Bendtner has not taken the field for Arsenal in two years. He is unlikely to ever do so again.
The final potential departing player is Japanese flier Ryo Miyaichi.
A player with Miyaichi's undoubted potential will surely not be allowed to leave permanently, although he may be released on loan in order to gain more match experience.
Feyenoord are declared admirers and would gladly welcome Miyaichi back to Rotterdam.
However, Arsene Wenger will be keen to learn the full extent of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's injury before allowing Miyaichi to go.
