Five Arsenal players who could leave before the transfer deadline.

Arsenal have been trimming their squad all summer, offloading under-performers like Marouane Chamakh and Gervinho, as well as releasing several players, including Andrei Arshavin and Sebastian Squillaci.

But could more be heading for the exit? With talk continuing of players arriving, don't be surprised to see a handful make their exits, permanently or temporarily before the transfer deadline passes.

Here are five who could... 

Emmanuel Frimpong

Central midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong is some way off proving himself as a first team player for Arsenal, and has had two serious knee injuries in his career so far. He has been on three loans in recent years, to Wolves, Charlton and Fulham, and another should not be ruled out. Crystal Palace could be an ideal option for him.

Ryo Miyaichi

Ryo Miyaichi had a brief appearance in midweek in the Champions League off the bench, and could be in line for a Capital One Cup start at the end of the month. However if a tempting loan offer comes in for his services, he would be better advised to take the move to a club where he can play regularly for the sake of his development.

Nicklas Bendtner 

Arsene Wenger said earlier that if Bendtner is not sold, then he will use him, but the Dane could still end up leaving. Steve Bruce has said he wants to bring him to Hull, a deal which could happen if Bendtner drops his wage demands. After the surprise deal which took him to Juventus last year, who knows what his agent has up his sleeve.

Park Chu-Young

Arsenal's forgotten man, where exactly is the South Korean? On the way out apparently; three French sides are reportedly chasing his signature, and expect him to move to one of Rennes, St Etienne or Lorient before the transfer window ends.

Isaac Hayden

Promising youngster Isaac Hayden came off the bench in Arsenal's win over Manchester City in pre-season. The centre-back has said he wants a loan move, and a Championship switch would be perfect for his development.
