Arsenal planning massive summer cull

Arsene Wenger is planning a busy summer of transfer activity, as he plans to sell many of the fringe players at the Emirates. Names that are included in this batch are believed to include Marouane Chamakh, Andrei Arshavin, Denilson, Nicklas Bendtner, Carlos Vela, Manuel Almunia and Sebastien Squillaci.

According to various reports on Wednesday morning, the Gunners are planning to dispose of many of their squad players in order to facilitate a busy summer of transfer spending.

There are also unconfirmed reports that primary shareholder, Stanley Kroenke, will bankroll a massive summer transfer deal.

Arsene Wenger has endured a mixed season so far at Arsenal, with the Gunners selling their two star midfielders Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas, then facing the wrath of supporters after failing to immediately replace them. However, seven wins in the league in a row have improved his frosty relationship with fans.
