The Arsenal manager is ready to let some of his outcasts leave in January…Arsene Wenger is preparing to let underused strikers Joel Campbell and Lukas Podolski leave the club in January, according to reports in the Times.
The arrival of Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck in the summer has meant limited game-time for either forward, and even Yaya Sanogo seems to be ahead of them in the queue for minutes.
With Olivier Giroud now recovered from injury, Wenger is happy to allow both of his under-used options go.

Germany international Podolski has started just one match this season, and is apparently being chased by former team Cologne and Inter Milan.
Joel Campbell, despite impressing at the World Cup, has not been able to break into the side, and has been linked with January moves to Everton, Swansea and West Brom.
Neither of the players is likely to attract a massive fee, but any funds raised will be used by the Arsenal boss in the much-needed reinforcing of his threadbare backline.
