Mikel Arteta set to embark on a ruthless sales drive

Mikel Arteta inherited an underperforming Arsenal team but he managed to steady the ship and end the last campaign on a positive note.

The Spaniard now has the chance to reshape his team and it seems that a lot of the deadwood that he met at the club will be sacrificed for new and better players.

The Times claims that the Spaniard has plans to make key new additions to his team and that will cost up to 10 first team players their place in the squad.

It claims that as the Gunners close in on the signing of the likes Gabriel, four defenders will have to leave the Emirates this summer before name-checking Calum Chambers and Rob Holding.

It adds that Matteo Guendouzi and Ainsley Maitland-Niles are two midfielders who have been made available for transfers.

Two strikers have also been put up for sale, including Alexandre Lacazette who has emerged as a transfer target for Juventus in recent weeks (The Sun).

After managing to earn a place in this season’s Europa League via winning the FA Cup, Arsenal will be keen to win yet another trophy this season and also end the coming campaign with a place in the Premier League’s top four.

  1. Ruthless is exactly what is needed, if we want to improve get rid of all the deadwood and fringe players and the just below the level required players ie laca, great to see that Wenger attitude play don’t fight has at last left us and now we are getting fighters with a lot of skill, happy days

  2. I have been checking all day for news of Gabriel and auba really dragging on. Classic Arsenal style.🤦


      Patience and football fans rarely go together. Nor do passion and patience go together. Patient people, in general, are often very bright but also often so boring!

      But the typical football fan, esp younger fans, mirrors the non caring for truth, the absence of which is rife in modern day football. Just the reality of a fans nature, eh KEN!
      As your post rightly says we fans will never succeed in hurrying up the club to make decisions. All sorts of false and hopeless rumours abound at this time, with ALL clubs , not just ours.

      The false rumour mill is a cruel and dishonest industry and this site is well versed in it, as are most of the media. Years ago, good journalists were known for always being truthful. An elite few still are but most of the media is a cesspit where truth dare not enter and is not even welcome. Only hype and false rumours, made up to order!

      1. I should perhaps have pointed out the post from Kenya 001, immediately above your post as TYPICAL of what I write. You might call it self confessed. I would anyway!

  3. Its seems like everyday same news and nothing happen im a Arsenal suporter but im sick and tired of same news over and over Arteta stop talking and let it happen

  4. Ruthless is good but we also need to satisfy the Premier league rules regarding foreign players.

    Bringing in 4 foreign players means we need to sell or loan foreign players as well

    1. So,if we bring 4 new foreign players (Saliba,Gabriel,Williams and Partey),we have to get rid of Torreira,Sokratis,Guendozi and Ceballos or Kolasinac.Any other solution?

  5. Ten players most likely to move on are Maitland-niles,sokratis,holding,chambers,elneny, mikhytaryan,torriera,guendouzi,ozil, lacazette.
