Sead Kolasinac and Pablo Mari could be on their way out of Arsenal in the January transfer window

Arsenal have primarily used Takehiro Tomiyasu at right-back this season, but his understudies Cedric Soares and Calum Chambers could both be set to leave the club.

Cedric is understood to be a target for Atletico Madrid following the departure of Kieran Trippier to Newcastle, while Chambers has entered the final six months of his contract.

Spence is currently on loan at Nottingham Forest and any deal for the 21-year-old would see him remain at the Championship side for the rest of the season as he has already played for two clubs during the current campaign.
