Mesut Ozil is the most high-profile Arsenal player in danger of losing his place in the 25-man squad Arteta will submit to the Premier League, Goal reports.
Arteta has to leave two first-team players after the summer transfer window closed on Monday.
The Gunners pulled off the last-minute signing of Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid, but couldn’t offload some of the players they wanted to leave.
Arsenal now has 19 non-homegrown players in their squad and are only permitted to submit a maximum of 17 to the Premier League.
