From all indications, Premier League club Arsenal have emerged as one of the clubs expected to be the busiest in this coming summer transfer window. The London club have a lot of work to do when it comes to transfers and they are expected to already start sorting their summer transfers even before the opening of the window if they want to show some seriousness about finishing in a respectable position on the log next season.

Not only are they expected to sign a lot of players this summer, but they are also expected to let go of a couple of stars from the club who have not been at their very best for a while now. While they have started to be linked with a couple of signings already, they have also been tipped to let go of some of the deadwood in the club as manager Mikel Arteta continues his rebuild this summer in what is expected to be a major squad overhaul.

Brazilian winger Willian is one of the first names on the list of expected departures and he could be leaving the club as early as the first week of the opening of the transfer window. Willian has not been the sort of signing Arsenal fans were expecting after he was snapped up from fellow London club Chelsea last summer and has only been able to score just one goal in the Premier League this season.

Although he made a fantastic impression on his Arsenal Premier League debut by providing three assists in a huge win, his form has waned off since then and he has not been able to remind the Gunners' fans what he is capable of.
So he is expected to leave the club this summer, alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Hector Bellerin, Grant Xhaka, and Lucas Torreira.
