​Wenger concedes Arteta, Flamini and Rosicky likely to depart Arsenal

Boss Arsene Wenger all-but confirmed that Mikel Arteta, Mathieu Flamini and Tomas Rosicky will leave Arsenal this summer.

Asked to pay tribute to the three veteran midfielders who are out of contract this summer he said: "All these players we have to decide do they go on with their careers as football players or as a coach.

"Mikel Arteta is captain of the club and has been a great leader. Tomas Rosicky has been with us 10 years, everybody loves him as well. Flamini has been a strong leader on and off the pitch, so we lose three big personalities."
