Arsenal have confirmed the list of players who will be leaving the club on June 30 at the end of their contracts.
The list includes club stalwarts such as midfielders Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla, and defender Per Mertesacker.
The German is staying at the club as the academy manager but Wilshere and Cazorla will be moving on, the latter looking to resurrect his career after a long injury-enforced absence.
Vlad Dragomir and Yassin Fortune are among the younger players who are on the release list.
But Daniel Ballard, Dominic Thompson and Robbie Burton have all signed their first professional deals.
There are contract extensions for youngsters Deyan Iliev and Tolaji Bola.
