Arsenal have confirmed the departures of seven players on the released players list which was submitted to the Premier League.
None of them are much of a surprise. Petr Cech is retiring; Aaron Ramsey is off to Juventus for free; Danny Welbeck has also left for free at the end of his contract; while the club did not take up the option of another year for Stephan Lichtsteiner.
As well as that Julio Pleguezuelo has joined FC Twente; while Charlie Gilmour and Cohen Bramall are now free agents.
It now appears that we did trigger the option in Nacho Monreal’s contract, which will see him remain at the club until 2020 – unless we sell him this summer as we continue the search for a new left back.
Carl Jenkinson is not on the list either, despite it being widely reported he was out of contract this summer. His deal expires next year, but the full back is a player who will be urged to find pastures new ahead of the new season.
