Five Arsenal transfers that could happen on deadline day including late Van Aanholt move and with Mustafi facing exit

ARSENAL haven't been shy in making moves this month, with big names coming in and out at Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners finally managed to ditch the likes of Mesut Ozil and Sokratis Papastathopoulos – while sealing loan moves for Martin Odegaard and Mat Ryan.

Sead Kolasinac and William Saliba were also allowed to leave on loan, while third-choice goalkeeper Matt Macey departed for Hibernian.

Despite all the activity, boss Mikel Arteta may not be quite done yet this month.

Let's take a look at some players that could come in or out of North London tomorrow or the summer.

SHKODRAN MUSTAFI

Error-prone defender Shkodran Mustafi could finally leave Arsenal, with his contract set to expire at the end of the season.

The German, who has made three Premier League appearances this season, has been linked with Barcelona – while Liverpool have emerged as shock contenders to sign their manager Jurgen Klopp's compatriot as they seek to ease their centre-back shortage.

PATRICK VAN AANHOLT

Arsenal are plotting a shock Deadline Day move for Crystal Palace left-back Patrick van Aanholt, claim the Mirror.

With Kieran Tierney currently injured, boss Arteta has admitted that the Gunners are 'short' in the position – as Cedric Soares has deputised their in yesterday's clash with Manchester United.

ALEX RUNARSSON

The Gunners could ditch summer signing Alex Runarsson already, SunSport told you earlier this month.

Iceland international Runarsson particularly struggled in the 4-1 League Cup defeat to Manchester City last month, and has been usurped as back-up by new-boy Mat Ryan.

EMI BUENDIA

Arsenal are interested in signing Argentine schemer Emi Buendia from Norwich, with the attacking midfielder in sensational form for the Championship leaders.

But the 24-year-old has reportedly accepted that he is likely to have to wait until the summer to join the North London club, because of the £40million price-tag on his head.

AINSLEY MAITLAND-NILES

Versatile homegrown talent Ainsley Maitland-Niles had a positive summer, helping the Gunners win last season's FA Cup before earning his first England caps.

But once again he finds himself out-of-favour, with Southampton and West Brom both reportedly 'pushing' to sign him on loan before tomorrow's deadline.
