Five players who could still leave Arsenal in the new domestic transfer window

Despite the international transfer window slamming shut in dramatic fashion as Arsenal completed a dramatic move for Atletico Madrid star Thomas Partey, the Gunners transfer dealings may not be over.

Premier League clubs are able to do deals with EFL clubs until October 16 as part of a special extension to the summer window.

Clubs now have a chance to hunt for Championship bargains with extra breathing space and crucially also move on squad players in need of first team football in 2020-21.

Mikel Arteta is expected to make use of the extra 10 days to loan out a host of young stars, and we take a look at who could be on their way out of the Emirates Stadium before the end of the EFL deadline.

Macedonian international Illiev could be loaned out once again, after spending the 2019-20 campaign at SKF iClinic Sered and Jagiellonia Bialystok.

With new signing Runar Runarsson stepping up to replace Emiliano Martinez as Bernd Leno’s deputy, and Matt Macey remaining as third choice, Iliev’s first team chances will be reduced to zero.


Injuries have prevented England international Chambers from making a first team appearance in 2020-21.

The eventual arrival of William Saliba and the impressive form of Gabriel Magalhaes in his early Arsenal career have already pushed him way down the pecking order.

Despite Shkodran Mustafi and Pablo Mari also likely to struggle for first team action in the coming weeks, Chambers looks the more realistic option to leave on loan.

He has already spent two seasons of his Arsenal career out on loan, at Middlesbrough and Fulham, and with West Ham failing in a deadline day move, a Championship side could swoop in to add experience to their defensive options, either on loan or permanently.
