Arsenal preparing to offload three players in the summer

Arsenal could be poised for a squad overhaul in the summer as they aim to capitalise on their recent fine form.

In the last two seasons, the Gunners have shown remarkable improvement, and they could potentially contend for either the Premier League title or the Champions League at the end of this season.

Regardless of the outcome of their current campaign, it is expected that they will continue to bolster their squad with new acquisitions in the upcoming transfer window.

Mikel Arteta’s side has identified several players on their shopping list, and significant financial resources will be required to secure their signatures.

Moreover, Arsenal also has players within their current squad who are deemed surplus to requirements and are likely to depart at the end of the season.

Football Transfers reveals that some of these players are already on the market, listing three individuals who could be on their way out.

The report suggests that the Gunners will entertain offers for Emile Smith Rowe, Eddie Nketiah, and Reiss Nelson once the season concludes.

Despite their origins in the club’s academy and their tenure within the squad for several seasons, it is believed that these players may seek opportunities elsewhere to secure regular playing time as the club continues to evolve.

Just Arsenal Opinion

We have progressed as a club, and these players will understand the decision to let them go in the summer.

Their sale will help us raise funds to sign our key targets and continue to improve the group.

  1. I completely understand about Nketiah and Nelson but I am totally against selling ESR. He is a very talented player, home grown and can play multiple positions in midfield and attack. Surely Arteta can utilise him to the utmost to maximise Arsenal’s success in the years to come.

    1. He is an injury prone player, just like James. His impact has not been really felt for the past two seasons.

  2. In my view, nketiah is the only one of the three who’s had a real chance to play consistent games, and shown he’s not quite at the level we want (despite some important goals and good performances, I have to say). ESR proved a couple of years ago that he can be a major player here, imo, but understand selling if we aren’t convinced he can get over his injury troubles, and Nelson has looked promising when he’s played, imo, but he’s not really had a chance over a run of games. If saka is so undroppable, I don’t see the point in signing another winger – we may as well stick with what we have. Nelson is a decent backup player who really does fight for the team, and trossard, havertz, jesus, ESR or Vieira can cover in a pinch.

    1. You took those words straight from my mouth. Exactly what I was about to say. Nelson and ESR haven’t had consistent game time whereas Nketiah is clearly not up to it.

      I believe see Nelson as a capable backup. No need spending another small fortune on Neto or Williams.

      Moreover, that’s too many attacking players to let go in one window

  3. Three players I would move on are Lokonga, Vieria and Nketiah.Whether they are sellable is debatable but imo ESR and Nelson bring more to the table than the trio I have mentioned.Quite frankly, I don’t feel Arteta has used ESR and Nelson enough.10 min cameos are not sufficient for a player to get match fit yet our Manager seems reluctant to give them a fair crack of the whip, even when Martinelli and Saka have struggled and have clearly been in need of a break.The injury to Martinelli is unfortunate but surely the Boss can trust a real talent like ESR to step into his shoes and use Trossard and/or Jesus on the RW before Saka succumbs to burn out.The lack of trust displayed by Arteta is concerning at a time when Pep and Klopp have used young fringe players in crucial matches.At the end of the season ,if we do not win the League I sincerely hope the finger is not pointed at the likes of Nelson and ESR as they simply have not been given the opportunity to perform on a regular basis.

    1. 👍 Spot on assessment, Grandad. How much would equivalent replacements for ESR and Nelson cost?

  4. Nketiah has had years to impress, but has not shown he’s at a level we need.

    ESR and Nelson have not received the chances to impress or cement their place in the squad.

    If a sound judgement can be made regarding those 2, then surely Vieira is on his way out as well.

    Nelson is a far better winger than Vieira, and ESR is levels above Vieira as a 10 or central midfielder.

    Imagine selling ESR and Nelson, but retaining Vieira and trying to sell people on his talent, productivity, and potential.

    Nketiah, Vieira, Tierney, Partey, on the outgoing list, but unfortunately ESR and Nelson likely receive the most interest and best offers.

  5. It’s not good to sell so many home grown players and not replace them with such, either from the youth teams or from English league.
    I’m sure Edu understand the rules, but I’d hate to see us with left with too many overseas squad players.

    1. That’s the other issue – I really can see nwaneri becoming more prominent next season, but that’s it from the youth team as far as I can tell. I’m not sure of how it balances out, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we’re in danger of having too few home grown players. To my mind, that was a big reason for us giving those contracts to Nelson and nketiah.

  6. offloading Nelson and ESR is a disastrous mistake for me but the manager knows better than we do but if really Smith and Nelson leaves then it’s a big lost for me as an Arsenal fan

  7. I mean he will be a top striker in a few seasons if he goes to a club that can utilize his strengths. Its not about age or being Kane .of course he is Nketiah we all know. kkk
