Declan Rice - Keep. One of Arsenal's world-class players. Hopefully, he is at the club for the long-run and he completes his mission of turning Arsenal back into a feared super-club.

Martin Odegaard - Keep. The captain and one of the best midfielders in the world. He will be raring for yet another excellent season in 2024/25.

Kai Havertz - Keep. Havertz has proven to be a great signing and he's had a particularly impressive 2024. He will be kept in the hopes of further development next season.

Fabio Vieira - Keep. I could understand if Vieira was loaned but with the number of Arsenal midfielders expected to leave, his squad role could increase next season. It'll be a "make or break" season for Vieira.

Thomas Partey - Sell. I feel like I am in the rare camp of people who like Thomas Partey. However, given the fact that his contract expires in 2025, he should be sold this summer to avoid losing him for free.

Jorginho - Sell. Jorginho's contract expires in 2024 and he's already talking with clubs in Italy. A good player to have in the squad for the last 18 months.

Mohamed Elneny - Sell. Perhaps the most likeable Arsenal player, it will be sad to see him leave when his contract expires this summer.

Emile Smith Rowe - Sell. Yep. Some fans won't like this one but Emile Smith Rowe is a shell of the player he once was, unfortunately. It would be great to see him excel at a club where is a regular starter. Arsenal cannot promise him that.
