Emery on whether players will be leaving Arsenal by Thursday

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has spoken on the odds of any players leaving the club by deadline day on Thursday, with only a couple of days left in the January transfer window.

The Gunners were involved in a squad clear-out at this time last year as the likes of Francis Coquelin, Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud were all allowed to leave the Emirates stadium.

A year later though, Arsenal have been reluctant to sell or loan out any first team players, particularly due to the terrible situation regarding injuries at the moment.

The likes of Danny Welbeck, Rob Holding and Hector Bellerin are all sidelined while Sokratis and Laurent Koscielny are set to miss the next few games as well.

Nonetheless, the Arsenal manager was asked about whether any of his players would be leaving the club this month, especially with rumours linking the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil with a departure.

According to Emery, it does not look as though anyone will be saying goodbye just yet.

“I think there is a very small possibility of letting players leave. It’s difficult to name a player who could leave.” the Arsenal manager said
