Man City PSR latest, Hato links, Lokonga, Smith Rowe and 10 players who could leave Arsenal

Your Arsenal questions were answered by football.london’s chief Gunners writer Kaya Kaynak, including the latest on Man City and PSR, summer transfer links and players who could leave

With one game remaining for Arsenal, full focus is on finishing the Premier League strongly right now. The Gunners can still win the league on the final day of the season, but after Manchester City’s victory over Tottenham on Tuesday, they’re left hoping for a miracle.

With that in mind, thoughts have slightly turned to the summer where Arsenal are once again expecting to be busy. There’s plenty of focus on incomings but the Gunners will also be looking to get a few players out the door as well.

With all that going on it felt like the perfect time for a Q and A session with our chief Arsenal correspondent Kaya Kaynak. Here are some of the highlights.

KK: So I think there are a few who we can say will be leaving for sure. Cedric and Mohamed Elneny are out of contract. Karl Hein is another who will probably move on. I think Eddie Nketiah will probably move on for the good of his career at this point. He has three years left on his contract so Arsenal can charge good money for a player who is a proven Premier League goal scorer. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem that Mikel Arteta fancies him over his other options right now.

I think Thomas Partey could leave as well with just one year on his contract. A few of the loan players could move on too. As mentioned in another answer Lokonga’s future lies elsewhere and Nuno Tavares will be on his way too ,you would think. Marquinhos, Kieran Tierney and Charlie Patino are unlikely to be at the club next season.

With Smith Rowe, I think it depends on what offers come in for him. He is quite fairly frustrated at the lack of minutes he’s been getting this season after overcoming some of the fitness problems that dogged him in years gone by. If a good offer comes in for him, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him go, especially given he has just two years left on his contract. Reiss Nelson has far longer left on his deal, but I think it’s a similar case with him.

SPORTArteta confirms Premier League trophy will be at Emirates for Arsenal vs Everton

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has confirmed the Premier League trophy will be at the Emirates on Sunday, when they host Everton in their final fixture.

The Gunners have a slim chance of winning the title on the day if Manchester City drop points at home against West Ham.

Despite the disappointment of seeing City beat Tottenham to go top, Arteta still believes his side can come out on top on the final day of the season

Speaking to the Spanish media, Arteta said: “This is the nice part, fighting for the title until the last day.

“It will be the first time that the Premier League trophy will be there waiting at the Emirates since it was built, with red ribbons on it, because if we win and they don’t, it’s ours.”
