Arsenal will allow Theo Walcott, Calum Chambers, Carl Jenkinson and Mathieu Debuchy to leave either on loan or on a permanent basis next month, according to the Sun journalist Daniel Cutts.

Walcott is reportedly deemed surplus to requirements by manager Arsene Wenger and could be sold with former club Southampton and West Ham leading the chase for the 28 year old.

Chambers meanwhile will likely leave on loan. The 22 year old signed a new four year contract in October but has been plagued by a hip injury this season, and has managed just two appearances for the Gunners. The defender will likely depart to get more game time and regain full fitness.

Jenkinson’s contract expires at the end of the season, and Arsenal will  listen to any offers for the right back. The 25 year old has spent the first six months on loan at Birmingham City but has been out with a dislocated shoulder since August.

Debuchy still has 18 months left on his deal with the Gunners, and although he was free to find a new club in the summer, the closest he came to leaving was a failed move to Nice. Whether there will be more suitors in January, we will have to wait and see.
