Which strikers will be leaving Arsenal?

With the season drawing to a close, the reality is that, for many players, this will be their last few months at their current club, and for Arsenal those players who are quite likely to be leaving in the summer just so happen to be strikers.

After seeing Nicklas Bendtner fail to display anywhere near enough consistency and decent performances on the pitch, despite the occasional flash of what could loosely be termed as brilliance, and Carlos Vela even fail to make the bench at West Brom, the chances are that these two players will be among the first to form the mass clearout that Arsene Wenger surely needs to implement if he is to purge his squad of the deadwood that has stopped the Gunners from displaying the kind of potency needed in front of goal for sides to win either the Premier League or the Champions League. As anyone following the football odds will know a lack of goals has been a problem at times this season.

If Arsene does decide to go the whole way by removing the weak points in his squad, it seems likely that a man who only arrived last summer will be on his way out, Marouane Chamakh. With Chamakh having played well during the first half of the season, many thought the he would continue to make a real name for himself in the league, but since around January he has failed to perform at anything like that kind of level and isn't proving to the loyal Gunners fans that he is capable of being a hit over in England.

However, although all these players may have to be shipped out, the real question for Arsene Wenger is who he would replace them with in order to strengthen his side.
