Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta to sell SIX players in summer overhaul. Arteta wants to get rid of the deadwood at the Emirates.
The Gunners are ready for a busy summer transfer window. Arsenal could end up selling top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, however, Arteta is hoping to convince the striker to stay.
However, The Times say regardless of Aubameyang’s future, Arteta wants to get rid of the deadwood at the Emirates.
The Arsenal boss is set to sell Sead Kolasinac, Matteo Guendouzi, Lucas Torreira and some of the centre-backs at the club. That could see Sokratis, Shkodran Mustafi, Rob Holding and even David Luiz sold.
However, Luiz’s exit seems less likely after the defender penned a new contract at Arsenal last month.
Arsenal have also confirmed that highly-rated centre-back William Saliba will return to the club ahead of next season.
As for Arsenal midfielder Guendouzi, the Frenchman seems on borrowed time at the Emirates.
The 21-year-old was out of Arteta’s squad for the third consecutive game on Wednesday night as Arsenal hammered Norwich 4-0.
