When talking about transfer rumors, most of the talk centers around who a team can afford to buy, and at what positions these new additions can fit into.
Well, this list is a bit different. Arsenal do have their needs that need to be addressed in the January transfer window, but I won't mention the likes of Eden Hazard, Yann M'Vila or Mario Gotze here.
These are five players the Gunners cannot afford to sell.
Though considered by many to be deadwood and surplus to requirements, these individuals may yet have a significant role to play in the squad this season, and losing them would deal a significant blow to Arsenal's trophy hopes on all fronts.
