Lukas Podolski - Despite currently being sidelined through injury, German international Podolski has been the subject of rather intense rumours. However, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger would be foolish to let him go due to his eye for goal and his useful ability to play anywhere across the frontline.

Thomas Vermaelen - Although club captain Vermaelen is evidently displeased with a lack of first-team starts so far this season, it is not hard to see why Wenger has opted to keep him on the bench in light of the excellent and consistent partnership that has formed between Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker.

However, with the former seemingly particularly fond of picking up a suspension or two and the latter prone to injury, Vermaelen is an excellent option to have in reserve and should remain at the Emirates Stadium.

Serge Gnabry - 18-year-old Gnabry would appear to be the latest young talent tipped for stardom under Wenger. However, despite some claiming he could be set for a loan spell, I believe Gnabry has a huge amount to offer the Gunners at this very moment and would benefit far more from remaining with Arsenal for the time being.
