North London giants Arsenal have concluded plans to make a major summer clearout according to the publication from Goal.

The Gunners are on the cusp of missing out on the Champions League for the third successive season after finishing out of the top four on the Premier League table despite the fact that they still have one more league game to play this season.

The aforementioned report revealed that Arsenal won’t offer defender Stephan Lichtsteiner a new contract.

The Swiss national team skipper joined the Gunners on a free transfer last summer and he’s expected to leave the club after the one-year deal he signed at the start of the season.

It was also revealed that Arsenal will listen to fringe players like Carl Jenkinson and Mohamed ElNeny.

Arsenal missed out on finishing in the top four on the Premier League table after the disappointing 1-1 draw at home to Brighton and Hove Albion.

The Gunners can still qualify for the Champions League next season but they have to win the Europa League to achieve that target.

Arsenal have a 3-1 lead over Spanish La Liga club Valencia from the first leg of their Europa League semifinal tie ahead of the second leg at the home for their Spanish opponents on Thursday night.
