There are many members of our Arsenal squad who divide opinion, with many gooners demanding a huge overhaul of the Arsenal team.
What makes our rumoured 45 million budget so frustrating is the inflated market, suddenly 30 million is the price for an average talent. Yet it works both ways and could work in our advantage.
For example, I’m not someone who wished Xhaka to leave but if reports linking him with a 50-million-pound move to Inter Milan are true, I would drive him to Italy!
This is a group of players too inconsistent to ignore such sums, especially when we have to sell to raise funds. While I find it harder to believe Barcelona would be interested in Kolasinac, 25 million would be great business for a left back who can’t defend.
Over the years Arsenal have rightfully been criticised for not getting the best price for their assets, it’s crucial that changes this summer.
If selling those two players nearly doubles our kitty and can be invested into other areas that matter, then that’s the model we must implement.
