The Arsenal store have dropped a huge hint about our summer transfer business, with the store refusing to print the names of certain Arsenal stars on the back of the newly released shirts.
Lukas Podolski has been heavily linked with an exit this summer (via the Metro), having spent the second half of the campaign somewhat unsuccessfully on loan with Inter Milan. David Ospina has also been linked with a rather surprising switch to Fenerbahce (via talkSPORT), with the Colombian apparently set to make way for the arrival of Chelsea’s Petr Cech.
The two players’ exits now look to have been all but confirmed by the Arsenal store, with the club refusing to print shirts with the names of either Podolski or Ospina on the back.

The club are clearly looking out for the fans, who are unlikely to want to be stuck with Podolski shirts if the German World Cup winner does leave us to join Galatasaray (via the Metro). But whether intentional or not, they have given away a lot about the future of the two men.
