Arsenal open to selling these two strikers as they near the end of their current deals

Arsenal has been busy in the last two transfer windows and that will be the case again in the summer.

After allowing the likes of Mesut Ozil and Shkodran Mustafi to leave the club, it seems that they will sacrifice even more players before the Gunners will get a team worthy of competing.

After spending over 20 years under the stewardship of Arsene Wenger, Arsenal has hired Mikel Arteta to rebuild their team.

He handed a new deal to David Luiz in the summer and Football London claims that the Brazilian will probably get an extension.

Even more interesting, the report reveals that Arsenal might cash in on Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah in the summer.

Both players have been the first choice at the club at some point this season, but Arteta has trusted Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to deliver the goals more often.

They will enter the final year of their current deal when this campaign ends and should be talking about renewals at the moment.

That hasn’t happened and the report says the Gunners will be open to cashing in on them in the next transfer window.

Nketiah has just a league goal from 14 outings this season.

    Sell eddie with a buy back clause.

    Lacca should be sold. He is not bad but not good either

      No buy back clause for Eddie! Why would any rational fan want him back? We need to lose him, not get him back! LACA TOO MUST LEAVE THIS SUMMER! As you say, he is not bad BUT also not good enough for an ambitious manager who wants a top side and means to get one .

        if we keep selling our experienced players then whos going to be the experienced seasoned head to lead and guide the youngsters?

          Unless Lacazette is sold in the summer, the club won’t be able to recuperate anything they spent on his transfer.

          The next transfer window is THE window to sell him. Especially since he’s been pretty decent for us in the past 10 games or so.

          His transfer can inject around 30 million pounds into the transfer budget.

          And as for Nketiah, he absolutely must be sold. He’s performed well below expectation to even be considered for a contract extension.

    sell both, get Ivor Toney

  3. LA Pope says:

    Eddie needs a long season loan in a tested league, still can add more to his ability besides his poacher goals. Laca just getting old and in part due to never having the true service he had from Lyon at Arsenal

    Best if we just part ways with both. Thanks Laca, but it’s just not a good match here at Arsenal.

    Sorry Edie the club can’t use up a roster spot waiting for you to develop. Martinelli would make much better use of the opportunities, and we have other youngsters that our time is better spent on.

    No technique, no link up, can’t create his own shot, sorry but he can learn at another club without the pressure he has here.

    Both simply need to go and not because they’ve got nothing to offer, but they simply make no sense for what appears to be our tactical aspirations moving forward…of course, I could be wrong as it’s difficult sometimes to figure out exactly what MA’s true plans are for the future, but if the more positive set-up of this past weekend against Leeds is any indication, then neither fits the bill…we simply must get something in return for Laca and if we don’t sell him off this summer his value will surely take a substantial hit…as for Eddie, we should have loaned him out right away after he was recalled from Leeds, as we knew exactly what he brought to the equation, this way we could have given Balo some significant minutes before entering the final year of his contract…if Eddie doesn’t generate enough interest on the transfer market, it would be wise to strategically loan him out to a club where he would have the greatest chance of putting up numbers, like in Leeds before his abdominal injury, thereby increasing the likelihood of getting the best possible return in the following couple of windows

  6. Epsitech Munsdorp says:

    Yeah guys we need to do better. On their day Eddie and Laca can do serious damage. The reality is that their day is 3 out of 10 days. Get us players that will have 8/9 good games out of 10.
