We are closer than we have been in a decade to a title winning team, and after a period of financial instability we look to be building a fantastic squad for the future. We reckon this summer could see a number of exits from the current crop of players however, as Arsene Wenger continues to mould a title-winning squad.
Here are six players we think are surplus to requirements.
6) Tomas Rosicky
The Czech international has been at the club since 2006, and when uninjured he has played a large part in our (limited) success.

He has been used sparingly this season though, despite a number of impressive performances in the tail end of the 2013/14 campaign.
The 34-year-old can arguably still do a job, and would be a decent squad player next season – but we wouldn’t especially miss him.
5) Mathieu Flamini
Although Flamini has looked a fairly shrewd signing on his second Arsenal spell, he’s no longer of the required standard to turn out for Arsenal, due to a lack of technical ability in the centre. Francis Coquelin is the superior player.
