Arsenal defender Stephan Lichtsteiner will leave the North London club at the end of this season.

This is according to the report from popular media outlet Goal which claimed that the Swiss international skipper will leave the Gunners when his contract expires this summer.

Stephan Lichtsteiner signed for Arsenal on a free transfer last summer as he put pen to paper on a one-year deal with the option of another year.

Arsenal will not take up the option of another year.

Stephan Lichtsteiner will be the fourth Arsenal player to leave the club this summer after Petr Cech, Danny Welbeck, and Aaron Ramsey.

Cech, Welbeck and Ramsey are all expected to leave the Gunners upon the expiration of their respective contracts.

Retired Czech Republic international shot stopper Cech will retire from this summer after a long and successful career at clubs like Rennes, Arsenal and Chelsea.

He joined Arsenal from London rivals Chelsea for around £10m in the summer of 2015.

Aaron Ramsey will also leave the club after a decade as an Arsenal player having joined the club from Welsh club Cardiff City for just £5m.

Danny Welbeck has been affected by a lot of injuries since signing for Arsenal from rivals Manchester United in 2014.

The England international will leave the North London giants this summer.
