Arteta’s staff takes form
Mikel Arteta has set his stall out early within the season, having clear favourites whereas others wrestle for gametime.
As such, in contrast to final season the lineups are fairly predictable, barring maybe one or two adjustments for damage causes.
With the primary XI choosing itself as a rule, some gamers are caught on the skin trying in, maybe grabbing 5 minutes off the bench right here and there however for essentially the most half making up matchday, or squad, numbers.
This might change come January. With no European soccer, Arteta can proceed to function with a streamlined squad for the rest of the season, realizing that at most he should play throughout three competitions (and with the FA Cup co-ordinated to keep away from the Premier League).
As such, there may very well be scope for gamers to depart in January. 101 appears at 5 gamers who could want to take that choice.
1. Mohamed Elneny
All the way down to the final six months of his contract, first up is Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Elneny. The 29 yr previous defensive midfielder has performed simply 48 minutes within the Premier League to date this season. That is regardless of an damage to Granit Xhaka that has stored him out of motion since September.
Mikel Arteta has turned to new signing Sambi Lokonga, and versatile Ainsley Maitland-Niles, forward of the Egyptian.
Arsenal’s midfield shall be restricted come January, as a result of Africa Cup of Nations, however Elneny shall be a kind of jetting off to participate, which means that he shall be unable to assist. As such, it appears as if his playtime shall be very restricted, and Arsenal might take into account getting his wages off of the books earlier than his contract is because of finish in July.

With golf equipment in Turkey rumoured to have an interest, might he be set for an early exit?
2. Eddie Nketiah
One other man wanting recreation time to this point this season is Eddie Nketiah, together with his choices restricted to simply Carabao Cup appearances, and no Premier League motion.
It was thought that Nketiah was heading to Crystal Palace final switch window, however a potential transfer fell by, and he has struggled to make an impression at The Emirates Stadium.

Additionally with simply 6 months left on his deal, the Daily Mail revealed that he has no intention of signing a new one in north London, which means that any supply that is available in in January might effectively be thought of by the Gunners. With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leaving for AFCON for a month from Boxing Day, nevertheless, it might rely on one other switch.
3. Folarin Balogun (mortgage)
On this case, it feels as if it’s both this or an Eddie Nketiah departure, not each.
Balogun has already spoken of his need to have a brand new problem in latest days, revealing:
“I do really feel like I’m prepared for a brand new problem however I’m undecided what that could be, it could be a mortgage or if I’m wanted at Arsenal then I’m right here & the gaffer is aware of that.”
The teen has clearly outgrown the U23s, because the video reveals under, the place he has registered 10 targets and offering 2 assists in 8 video games.

A mortgage transfer certainly beckons, until Nketiah departs, by which case he might keep to play second fiddle to Alexandre Lacazette come January.
4. Calum Chambers
Calum Chambers has not performed within the Premier League since Arsenal’s 5-0 defeat to Manchester Metropolis, and has not even been within the matchday squad for the final 7 video games, however has appeared twice in three Carabao Cup ties.
Now 26 years previous, he’s within the prime of his profession and can certainly be searching for common minutes at his subsequent membership, ought to he determine to maneuver on.
With six months left on his contract (as per Transfermarkt), and the membership but to take up the choice of a further yr, January might effectively show the optimum time for him to depart for all events. Arsenal would obtain a charge, Chambers would get common recreation time, and Everton would get a reliable Premier League right-back.
Everton are rumoured to have an interest within the defender, and there would certainly be different suitors ought to Arsenal make his availability public, whereas with each Cedric and Ainsley Maitland-Niles forward of him within the pecking order to backup new signing Takehiro Tomiyasu, his future in north London appears bleak.
5. Nicolas Pepe
To be clear, there was little credible hypothesis linking Nicolas Pepe with a transfer away from The Emirates stadium in January.
Nevertheless, ought to there be, it might not be an terrible time for Arsenal to chop their losses. The Ivorian has misplaced his place within the aspect, and seemingly Mikel Arteta’s religion.
Pepe has began simply 5 occasions within the Premier League to date this season, and for Arsenal’s final three wins has solely seen a mixed 5 minutes on the pitch, being left as an unused substitute for 2 of the video games.
Having didn’t dwell as much as the 72 million price ticket that Arsenal paid Ligue 1 outfit Lille in 2019, and can have simply two years left on his contract come the summer time. Ought to Arsenal get an acceptable supply for his or her winger, they simply may take into account it.
Honourable point out: Sead Kolasinac
Sead Kolasinac’s probabilities of a transfer away could lie in ruins after he suffered a serious-looking damage in opposition to Finland whereas representing Bosnia and Herzegovina in the latest worldwide break.
The left-back has been little used this yr, and with Nuno Tavares now forward of him as Kieran Tierney’s understudy, the potential of minutes on the membership had he been match appear scarce.
Now, nevertheless, he might discover himself pressured to stay at Arsenal till his contract expires subsequent summer time, with suitors more likely to keep away from him ought to he have picked up an damage as severe as feared.
