Arsenal is now focusing on sales to fund more summer spending

Arsenal has added some interesting names to their squad in this transfer window, including the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Fabio Vieira.

They will continue to make new signings, and several names have been linked with a move to the club.

However, they might have to sell first before they add more players to the group and they do have some deadwood that needs to be offloaded.

The Sun says Mikel Arteta’s side is looking to sell up to seven players before this transfer window closes.

Nicolas Pepe, Bernd Leno, Hector Bellerin, Lucas Torreira, Pablo Mari, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Reiss Nelson are all available for transfer.

However, it has been hard for them to find buyers for these individuals and it means they could be stuck with some of them when this campaign resumes.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Most of these players are the reason we have underachieved for so long and we must find new homes for them.

Keeping them at the Emirates will leave us with an unnecessarily big squad.

It could also make transfer targets feel the competition for a place on the team is too much for them. 

Eventually, we might be forced to offload some of these players in temporary deals because no club wants them on a permanent transfer.

  1. Interesting article, that lists certain players that mean “we have underachieved for so long.”

    Pepe, Leno, Torreria, Pablo Mari, Bellerin, Nelson and AMN were listed as part of the “underachieved for so long” and it’s really interesting to delve a little deeper.

    Since AW left at the end of the 17/18 season, having been relieved of his role with regards to transfers in and out by Gazidis the season before.

    Since then, all bar Bellerin (I believe) have been signed by gazidis and / or MA, along with new contracts or have left the club, along with other players within that time line.

    Here’s the list :
    Leno – Torreria – Aubameyang – Pablo Mari – Pepe – AMN – Nelson – Lichtsteiner – Socratis – Guendouzi – Willian – Luiz.

    Now I wonder how long the “have underachieved for so long” encapsulates, but it seems that both gazidis and Mikel have played more than a minor part in that underachievement with regards to player transfer / contract / dross signings.

  2. Probably the facet where the club is worst. Our team would struggle to sell ice in the tropics, and for a loss if they did.

    Iwobi and Ox were the last good sales we had, it’s been daylight mugging ever since.

    And now relying on the team that sold Guendouzi and Mavroporas for pocket change, actually paid Auba to go to Barca, and gave away the rest.

  3. I still feel, given the right environment and training, AMN and Nelson can still play for us and contribute to the Arsenal cause. That said, considering the other players, the sooner we sell them the better, as it will make room both on the field and in financial terms for new players to be brought in.
