Arsenal could see several players depart the Emirates on a temporary basis before the domestic deadline as Mikel Arteta shapes his Gunners squad

Arsenal enjoyed a promising summer which was topped off by Thomas Partey’s deadline day arrival but attention now turns to who could depart before Friday’s domestic deadline.

Mikel Arteta took over at the Emirates midway through last season meaning this was his first chance to truly shape his squad.
