7 Players Released
Arsenal have just announced the release of 7 players.
We were all aware of Welbeck, Ramsey and Cech. It'll also come as no surprise that Lichsteiner will not have his contract renewed next season.
The last 3 are all academy players. Midfielder Charlie Gilmour I'm not too worried about, though I'm a little confused as to why we've released Cohen Bramall and Julio Pleguezuelo.
Bramall is a LB and with Monreal aging and Kolasinac not always the best option defensively, surely it would be beneficial keeping him on the books?
Similarly with Pleguezuelo who's a CB but can also play RB - Koscielny and Sokratis are aging, Mustafi is not good enough, and surely we can have a better backup to Bellerin than Jenkinson?
These guys were both knocking on the door and you have to suspect the club doesn't deem them good enough to challenge for the first team next season.
