Mikel Arteta is claimed to be in want of six new signings this summer, as many as Arsenal added in the previous summer window also.
The Gunners are currently on course for their highest league finish since the 2015-16 season where we finished up as runners up to eventual winners Leicester City, with us currently set to finish third or fourth. While there is still plenty of work to do to achieve such a finish, but at present, we are the team that is impressing in the battle for the Champions League places, and we now hold the numerical advantage also.
Much of our impressive season has to be accredited to a number of our signings of last summer in Ben White, Takehiro Tomiyasu and most notably Aaron Ramsdale, while Thomas Partey and Martin Odegaard’s recent arrivals have also been huge in our push for fourth.
The Mirror (whilst citing The Evening Standard) claims that we have earmarked six signings for the summer, with two strikers, a left-sided centre-back, a right-back, one winger and a central midfielder.
Should we qualify for the Champions League, we will need a strong squad of options for the season, and may not need too many outgoings with the incomings, while the likes of William Saliba would surely be in line to stake a claim for a role in the squad after successful loans also.
Which players do you think should be sold off as part of another squad overhaul this summer?

JUST ARSENAL SHOW Are Arsenal worthy of a Top Four finish?
Players staying for sure.
Ramsdale Tierney Tavares Tomiyasu White Gabriel Partey Lokonga Odegaard ESR Saka Martinelli
Players probably leaving
Leno Bellerin Mavropanos Torreira Elneny. .
Players possibly leaving/loan.
Lacazette Cedric Holding Xhaka Pepe Nketiah Niles Nelson Balogun.
At least one striker. ?
One/Two Midfielder. ??
Players coming in will depend on how the present squad perform between now and May and whether the team ends up in the CL or the EL.
Laca, Nketiah,Elneny – contracts up.
Xhaka – time to move him on but i think if we get CL football he will want to stay.
Bellerin,Mari – recoup as much money as possible
Pepe – renew contract or sell
Torreira, Guendouzi, Mavropanos – already gone
Nelson – loan or sell depending on contractual situation
Trusty – loan
In: 2 strikers, 2 midfielders, 1 winger, Rightback
Turner – already signed
Spence – £15M
Ruiz – £16M
Phillips – £35M
Gnabry – £?
Nunez/ Adeyemi – £45 M
Origi – free
Cheque book manager, learnt it from Pep. Even Sam or Pardew could do the same. What a shame.
We threw away diamonds for some pearls. Emi Martinez/Leno, Bellerin, Mustafi/ Mavro, Saliba, Kolasinac, AMN, Torrera, Ozil,PEA and Laca a team of players discarded Or going to be discarded. Sad state of affairs of the once famous Arsenal
Are you trolling?
truth hurts i know
If we secure champions league spot:
Gk: Turner (deal agreed)
Rb: either DJed Spence as back up to Tomiyasu.
Integrate Saliba to back line.
Box to box: Aouar or Kessie (free).
Winger: Zaha or Dembele (free).
Lacazette new 2 year deal.
It all depends on where we finish this season, atleast who comes in rather than how many players come in. I think the chances of signing more number of players in terms of quality increases exponentially if we make it to the CL. Also I hope Saliba rejoins Arsenal, a wonderful player, will make our defence impregnable.
We could need up to 4 strikers rather than the two noted in the article, probably wouldn’t leave much time to find and close deals for any other positions in the summer
I love laca to stay and saka to stay too. Xhaka sell him and buy replacement then look for better finisher goal and swap with Nelson
CD Integrate saliba
GK. TUNNER already sign
