Now that pre-season is set to start with the new Arsenal signings joining the squad on the trip to Australia, it is time for us to begin the clear-out of the ?heavy squad’ that Wenger has promised us.
From the list of players on their way to Australia I have guessed that Jenkinson, Apkom, Debuchy, Perez, Gibbs, Campbell and Szczesny are going to be sold. Obviously I am not including Alexis in this list until his future becomes clearer…
So here are my estimates that we should achieve from each of these…
Jenkinson 10 million (only because he is English)
Apkom 8 million (to a Championship side)
Debuchy 5 million (if we are lucky!)
Perez 15 million (Wenger won’t take less!)
Gibbs 12 million (surely he is worth that?)
Campbell 10 million (Should have sold him last summer)
Szczesny 12 million (Juventus won’t pay more than that)
So that is 72 million which easily covers the price we have paid Monaco for Lacazette, and leaves a bit left as a good deposit for Lemar or Mahrez.
What do you think of these prices? Is there anyone I have left out?
