Gunners to allow attacking trio to leave.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger could be set to allow three of his attacking players to leave the club before the end of the summer, according to various sources.
The Gunners boss has spent big on the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Mathieu Debuchy and Calum Chambers this summer, and may now have to offload a few members of his squad to bring some cash in after these heavy investments.
It looks likely that the north London giants could bid farewell to three members of his attack, with Galatasaray thought to be jetting in to hold talks with the club over possibly signing two of them.
The three players set for the axe by Wenger are as follows:
3) Serge Gnabry
The first player looking likely to leave, albeit only on a season-long loan deal, is promising German winger Serge Gnabry. The immensely talented teenager impressed whenever given a chance by Arsene Wenger last term, and is now attracting interest from three Premier League sides in Newcastle United, Crystal Palace and Southampton, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.
2) Joel Campbell
Elsewhere, another highly regarded young forward could be set for an exit from Arsenal as Galatasaray declare an interest in Joel Campbell. The Costa Rica starlet caught the eye at this summer’s World Cup, also leading to rumoured interest from AC Milan, and he may find it tricky to claim a regular place in this Arsenal team with Wenger having so many other high class options to choose from in that area. Still, the Frenchman is said to be keen on keeping the player, and may instead be open to offers from Galatasaray for another player.
1) Lukas Podolski
The other player in question is experienced German forward Lukas Podolski, who could leave in a double swoop on Arsenal by Galatasaray, according to the Daily Star. The former Bayern Munich ace has performed well for the Gunners in his two seasons with the club, though he was not always a regular for the side at points last season, leading to suggestions that Wenger would be open to letting him leave for the right price.
