Mikel Arteta warns Arsenal cannot sell best players this summer. The club “cannot” be a team that sells its best players in order to make new signings.

Club captain and top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been linked with a move away from the Emirates this summer, with just a year remaining on his current contract.

Arteta accepts that all football clubs are facing an element of financial uncertainty amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

However, with Premier League rivals Chelsea having signed Hakim Ziyech from Ajax and Timo Werner from RB Leipzig, the Spaniard appears wary of losing ground.

“We don’t know how the market is going to be,” Arteta said on Thursday. “Obviously we are putting different plans together to see what we are going to be able to do.

“At the moment the uncertainty is still big, as well the way we are going to finish the season is going to dictate things financially as well. So we have to be a bit patient and see what happens.”

“We’ve seen different things. The way that Chelsea is dealing with the market is different to the rest at the moment, but Bayern Munich as well, they’ve been really aggressive.”

“But if you ask me, we cannot be a team that has to sell his player to try and bring in and improve his squad – that’s for sure.”
