Arsenal stars Mathieu Flamini, Mikel Arteta, and Tomas Rosicky are set to leave the club in the summer after being refused a new contract, Daily Mail reports.
The trio will see their contracts expire in the summer, while it is said that manager Arsene Wenger has rejected the opportunity to open talks over an extension.
With Mohamed Elneny completing a move from Basel during last month’s transfer window, the three midfielders have been moved further down the pecking order.
The club are expected to make a major signing to reinforce their ranks in the position during the summer as Wenger looks to clear up room in his squad with their departures.
Arteta, who turns 34 next month, is also being linked with a coaching role at Manchester City after incoming manager Pep Guardiola hinted at a possible switch should he decide to retire at the end of this season.
Flamini was on the receiving end of quite a bit of criticism recently for bringing down Barcelona star Lionel Messi in the penalty box 47 seconds after being substituted on as his side suffered a 2-0 Champions League first-leg defeat.
