Arsenal might finally offload unwanted player but it will be for an insignificant fee

Arsenal’s summer has been a busy one, but it has mostly been around players joining them from other clubs.

Their incomings have been decent, but they will only increase the size of the squad at the Emirates, so they need to offload some of their current options.

The likes of Lucas Torreira, Willian and Sead Kolasinac seem to have no future at the club and their best option is to leave.

Football London reports that Kolasinac is likely to leave the Emirates on a permanent transfer soon.

He spent the second half of the last campaign on loan at his former club, Schalke but he couldn’t help them avoid relegation to the German second division.

The left-back is now back at Arsenal, but he is not in the plans of Mikel Arteta and the report claims he has attracted the attention of SS Lazio and Fenerbahce in this transfer window.

He might join one of them before the transfer window closes, however, Arsenal shouldn’t think they will earn a lot of money from his sale because he would likely command just a nominal fee.

Getting his wages off their budget alone would go a long way in helping the club financially because he is currently an unwanted quantity at the Emirates.

    Then so be it. The players that Arsenal urgently need to offload (EG. Kola, Torreira, Bellerin) won’t go up in value so take whatever is offered. Can cash-in on the younger homegrown players that might fare better at clubs with no top-6 plans (AMN, Nelson, Willock, Nketiah) and that’s enough to get a decent midfielder and striker as well as trimming the squad and giving some other youngsters a chance to come through.

      You have a good way with words particularly your point about some of our younger players being more suited to PL teams without top6 aspirations

      nobody biting on amn and nelson at all tho. the demand has to be there as well. Nketiah at least has a couple links and now injured tho. hopefully something goes through.

        Last year I was crying myself hoarse that we should ride the tide and sell AMN when Wolves came calling with a 20m cheque. Nobody listened. Now we are stuck with him
        Thank God we are about to avoid a similar mistake with Willock.

          Really do not know what happened behind the scenes.The lad did really well in the run for the FA & CS. He may have been influenced then by the older bad characters hired by Wenger whose rotten attitude stinks to the core.Hopelfully the lad has turned the page and plays to his potential. With other young lads like Sambi & Tavares, hope AMN has put those influences behind him. Regarding Willock, the boy has been a good fella with no attitude issues and will succeed in teams which play a faster game.With Xhaka & Elneny, he too will pass the ball in geometric formations with no positive outcome. Good luck Joe for the new season.

            And like Gnabry, AMN was loaned to the wrong club.

          2. siamois says:

            MA played him in those 2 games which was at the exact time there was interest in him from Southampton Leicester..and we received a bid from Wolves then as soon as the window closed MA benched him again was the timing a coincidence?I somehow doubt that!

  2. MkjtheGreat says:

    Willock should stay
    Because is a great future player is better to keep him for future use
    Hope he will become a very great player that is going to be value More than E150 in the market

    Hi,folks! I am an ARSENAL fan from Liberia and I have been following this club for pretty close to 23 now. I just one to tell ARTETA one thing: don’t sell JOE WILLOT. You’ll certainly end up regretting like when you sold one of the best stopper in the world at the moment.

    If anyone is buying Kola, ok, so be it. Good for Arsenal and good for Kola himself, he will excell at another team, maybe the PL did not suit him. Best of luck Kola.

  5. Ozziegunner says:

    Kolasinac came to Arsenal on a free transfer and was attracted by high wages. Selling him for any transfer fee, therefore results in a profit and gets his wages off the books. Needs to be done to remove the last of the clique.

    1. Sid says:

      Maybe wont balance the books at Arsenal though, would it Ozzie? Can book a profit but overall layout might be a loss making figure. Wonder if they keep the losses as depletion to reduce taxes😂😂
      Oh just remembered Arsenal posted losses, so that advantage went away too..
