So this it, the last day of the summer transfer window, and there should be lots of activity in the coming frantic hours. But will Arsenal be buying or just clearing out some more players ahead of the deadline. ESPN are telling us that “sources from the club” have told thm that the Gunners are going to offload Mohammed Elneny and Danny Welbeck as a priority. On Welbeck they stated…..
Striker Welbeck has a year remaining on his deal and Arsenal are open to selling him rather than risk him leaving for nothing next summer, with a number of Premier League clubs monitoring the situation.
Having already sold Lucas Perez, the departure of Welbeck will give us very few options in the striking department. If Lacazette and Aubameyang get injured we could be in trouble…
On Elneny, they said….
Elneny, who only signed a new deal in March, has slipped down the pecking order, with the arrivals of Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi meaning Arsenal have a number of options in defensive midfield.
Yes we do have lots of midfielders, but I would be very surprised if we sell Elneny just after giving him a new contract, but it looks like we will find out in the next few hours….
