Thomas Partey drama was brewing for a long time and culminated on the 

Rúnar Alex Rúnarsson moved in as the second goalkeeper as Emiliano Martínez moved to Aston Villa.

Players – moved out of Arsenal

Emiliano Martínez was released as the Argentine asked for assurance from Mikel Arteta for more match-time. But Arsenal management kept faith on Brend Leno.

Lucas Torreira had fallen out of favour after Unai Emery. He was initially planned to be used for Thomas Partey swap deal, but later he moved to Madrid on loan.

Matteo Guendouzi had fallen out with Arsenal management and the talented playmaker. 

Henrikh Mkhitaryan moved permanently to AS Roma after a successful loan term at Italian capital.

Arsenal Players – Contract renewal

Alexandre Lacazette – The Frenchman got his contract renewed.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had real chances to move out with Barcelona and few other top European clubs interested. But the Gabon international’s changed his mind after he was convinced with Mikel Arteta’s management as they won FA cup last season.

Bukayo Saka – the starlet who can play anywhere on the field was tied to a longterm contract with a ten times increase of salary.
