A total of nine players will leave Arsenal this summer, with their head coach Mikel Arteta looking to raise funds for new signings. Arsenal was in contention to finish fourth and book a place for next season’s Champions League until the final day of the season. They narrowly lost fourth place to their north London rivals, Tottenham, and will now settle for Europa League participation next season.
Arsenal Puts Lacazette, Nketiah others up for sale
The Gunners have a host of players currently out on loan, though almost none of those have a future at the Emirates and Arteta intends to cash in with them. According to reports, the London club is looking to raise around £60million and significantly trim their wage bill.
They have listed some players including Matteo Guendouzi and Konstantinos Mavropanos, who are on loan to Marseille and Stuttgart, respectively, Hector Bellerin, Lucas Torreira, Bernd Leno, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Pablo Mari, Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah as the player they want to sell out.
A decision has yet to be made about the futures of William Saliba and Reiss Nelson, who have impressed at Marseille and Feyenoord, and they could be reintegrated into the squad. Mikel Arteta will add three academy prospects, Charlie Patino, Miguel Azeez, and Omari Hutchinson, who he rates very highly, to his squad.
