Arsenal star Hector Bellerin is one of the players who could leave the club during the summer transfer window as Mikel Arteta is preparing for a huge summer overhaul. According to the Guardian, five players are on the list of departures after the Gunners missed the chance to qualify for Champions League and Europa League.

The Spaniard’s deal with Arsenal ends in 2023, however, he has made his desire to leave clear for the club. Goalkeeper Bernd Leno, meanwhile, will be a free agent after two years and has not discussed his future. Granit Xhaka is reportedly in a similar situation. The quintet is completed by David Luiz, who looks likely to depart when his contract ends in June.

Alexandre Lacazette, whose deal expires next summer, has an uncertain future. Arteta has been coy about the prospect of offering a new contract but is believed not to have ruled out trying to keep him on.
