The upcoming summer transfer window could see a number of Arsenal players depart the club.

Despite the Gunners' otherwise good positioning in the Premier League, the north London club are expected to revamp their current squad in the next window.

The move will undoubtedly affect some current squad members who could be shipped out to help the club raise funds for transfer targets and make space for new arrivals.

The development comes at a time the depth of Arsenal's squad has been put to test with injuries to key players, pushing the team to its limit.

According to The Sun, while some have stepped up and made a significant contribution to their season, several others will be fighting to make a mark in the remaining games to prove they still have something to offer beyond the current campaign.

Sports Brief takes a look at the top six players that could depart Arsenal this summer.

1. Kieran Tierney

The fullback has fallen down the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium this term, with the Scottish currently behind Oleksandr Zinchenko.

While his form is out of the question, it is unlikely he will displace Zinchenko going forward.

As such, he is expected to seek a move away in search of first-team football.

Tierney has already been linked with a switch to Newcastle United.

2. Rob Holding

Rob Holding, a long-term Arsenal squad member, has found game time hard to come by since the return of William Saliba.

However, with the Frenchman currently sidelined, Holding has an opportunity to impress and potentially earn a starting place under Mikel Arteta.

3. Reiss Nelson

While injuries have taken a huge toll on the youngster, the attacker has been able to make a significant contribution whenever he is available.

Nelson has scored three goals in four Premier League appearances, including a stoppage-time winner against Bournemouth back in February.

His contract will be up in the air in the summer.

4. Emile Smith Rowe

The midfielder has endured an injury-plagued season that has hampered his progress.

The Englishman has played only eight times in the Premier League this season, providing one assist in the process.

5. Jorginho

Despite joining Arsenal in January, the Italian midfielder is already facing a bleak future with the League leaders.

The Gunners snapped up the ex-Chelsea ace as an alternative to Brighton's Moises Caicedo.

However, Jorginho is competing for a starting role with Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey.

6. Eddie Nketiah

And finally, on this list is Eddie Nketiah.

The arrival of Gabriel Jesus last summer appeared to spell doom on Nketiah's future with Arsenal.

However, the star forward has gone on to play a key role this season following Jesus's long injury layoff.

But with the Brazilian attacker back fit and the arrival of Leandro Trossard, Nketiah would need to reassess his position in the coming weeks.

RvP backs Arsenal to win the EPL

Earlier, Sports Brief reported Robin van Persie has backed former side Arsenal to win the Premier League title this season.

The Gunners have emerged as firm favourites to be crowned the champions after an incredible run of form under Mikel Arteta.

The north Londoners are currently enjoying an eight-point lead at the top of the standings with just 10 matches left to play.
