Arsenal fans vote for Mesut Ozil, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Shkodran Mustafi to leave the club this summer, whereas a slender majority want Laurent Koscielny to stay.

The 2018-19 campaign saw Arsenal finish outside the top four for the third season in a row, and their transfer budget has taken a significant hit as a result.

Plenty of players continue to be linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium, but Unai Emery's ability to bring his desired targets to the club is limited by a reported £45m warchest.

With many fans calling for a major squad overhaul that budget is unlikely to suffice, meaning that Arsenal could be forced to offload some high-profile players to raise more funds.

Sports Mole recently gave supporters the chance to vote on who they felt should stay or leave the club during the ongoing transfer window, and if they have their way then some big names may be on their way out of North London.

Mesut Ozil - the club's highest earner - is one of those to have been linked with an exit, and a whopping 78% of supporters would like to see him leave despite the most interested party Fenerbahce ruling themselves out of the running this week.

Ozil's fellow attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan is another fans want to see sold this summer, with 72% of voters calling for Arsenal to 'Ditch' the Armenian.

Neither was the most unpopular player amongst the Gunners faithful, though, with that unwanted accolade going to Shkodran Mustafi, who earned an unequivocal 92% 'Ditch' rating.

The likes of Mohamed Elneny (85%), Nacho Monreal (63%) and Carl Jenkinson (85%) could also be on their way out should the fans get their way - although worryingly some of the players Arsenal fans want to keep most have also been linked with exits.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette earned 97% 'Keep' ratings, while the likes of Lucas Torreira, Hector Bellerin and Bernd Leno were all voted to stay by more than 90% of fans too.

Midfielder Granit Xhaka also fell the right side of the line, while captain Laurent Koscielny, who has since refused to travel with the squad on their pre-season tour, was the most divisive with 51% of supporters voting to keep him.
