Arsene Wenger expects more Arsenal departures this summer – 101 Great Goals


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that he is expecting more players to leave the Emirates this summer, admitting that the squad is ‘too big’.

Speaking after Arsenal’s Community Sheild victory over Chelsea this afternoon, Wenger admitted that too many players in each position could be damaging for his players.

Olivier Grioud’s place at Arsenal has come under scrutiny following the £46.5m arrival of Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon.

We will let some players go. Too much competition for places is detrimental, but not enough competition for places is detrimental as well,” he added.
