Serge Gnabry, Joel Campbell and Lukas Podolski, who have all been linked with moves away from Arsenal, have been selected in the champions league qualifiers squad coming up in a week or so.
Notable, but obvious absentees are; David Ospina and Theo Walcott. Other than that, we have a full strength team to choose from; including the Germans.
This doesn’t mean the above three players won’t be leaving of course but it’s an indication that Wenger will keep them. Although Gnabry could be loaned out after the qualifiers as whoever he joins won’t be in the CL.
