This summer is looking likely to be extremely busy for Arsenal, and the latest reports claim that a player exodus could happen also.
The whole season has brought talk of Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Arsene Wenger leaving, with the manager in his final year of his current deal, and the duo nearing their final 12 months of theirs.
The German international is claimed to have had a price-tag slapped on his head, with a supposed £42 Million asking price set, with contract negotiations having become a nuisance for those in charge of the club.
Alexis Sanchez however is claimed to be happy at the club, and although terms are yet to be agreed, the club seem willing to play hard-ball and refuse to sell, amidst uncertainty over other players.
Hector Bellerin is now claimed to be a key target for former club Barcelona, and the Spaniard may well push to leave. Arsenal look destined to settle for a Europa League spot for the coming campaign, having lost too much ground in the push for the top-four, and Bellerin may look to leave amidst tough times in North London.
The Spaniard has also been dropped to the bench in recent weeks, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain starring as a wing-back in Wenger’s new formation. This only adds to the speculation that he could quit the club, and he is a key player who no Gunner would be happy to see leave. Hector is under contract until 2022 however, and should he leave, he will most certainly command a hefty fee.
There is a huge amount of uncertainty at the Emirates currently, and only when Wenger’s future is confirmed will we really be able to gauge a realistic summer transfer window, although the Frenchman is claimed to have been tasked with a mass-rehaul of the squad should he stay.
Would we sell both Bellerin and Ozil? Could we really keep Alexis beyond the summer without a contract agreement?
