Opinion – Not the end of the world if Arsenal sells three high profile players

There has been a lot of noise made about Arsenal potentially entering their toughest summer in a long time.

Some even claim that it could be their most important summer since the inception of the Premier League.

What is even more talked about is the fact that Arsenal could lose their most senior players like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Mesut Ozil.

It seems like it would be the end of the world if Aubameyang, for example, was to leave the Emirates at the end of this campaign, however, I see it in a different light and in my opinion, it can be a major positive if we sell all three of them.

Let us not forget that no player would give their best when they don’t want to play for a team.

These players have made it look like we have to beg for them to give a good performance even though they earn a lot of money from playing for our club.

I don’t subscribe to the idea that if we lose players who are happier to leave us, we would be worse off.

I think selling players that want to leave and replacing them with players who would die for the shirt is the ultimate show of wisdom.

I love Aubameyang and Lacazette and I would want them to stay, however, if they would happily leave us for another team, then we should let them go.

We can replace them with other players who are not just talented, but also hungry for success with our team.

So, in conclusion, selling the likes of Aubameyang, Lacazette and Ozil could be a positive for Arsenal, no point keeping players that no longer want to play for the shirt.

    If we lose Aubameyang, Lacazette and Ozil. I won’t be too sad.
    It only means the mantle will fall on Martinelli, Saka, Pepe, Nketiah to lead our attack.

    A front 3 of any of the above can threaten other opponents.

    I much agree with the argument about it not being wise to keep any players whose hearts and minds are elsewhere. Football has a long history of successful evidence to support this contention. FOOTBALL IS A TEAM GAME AND THIS IS SOMETIMES . ASTONISHINGLY, OVERLOOKED IN THE WORSHIP PAID BY SO MANY TO “STAR ” PLAYERS, IRRESPECTIVE OF WHETHER THEY ARE THERE IN MIND AS WELL AS BODY. So many are NOT!

    Realistically there is absolutely no hope of us selling Ozil, indeed no Club would take over his current contract with Arsenal even if he was “freed”. As for the other two,I hope they stay as they are both quality players.Laca has had for him a poor season, but to me he is still a class act who will bounce back next season if the Pandemic relents.We have a group of fine forwards, young and old and our problems clearly lie in other areas of the pitch.

    Auba is the only one that I would want us to push the boat out for. He deserves to be par on salary with some of the others in his field.

    Laca, I like him and have nothing against him personally, but I think he might not have the physical requirements to lead an AFC attack, Arteta’s system is demanding, we’ve barely even gotten started.

    Ozil, I have to credit him that he did up his energy levels under Arteta, but ultimately I don’t think it suits him too well and even he can admit that, to himself at-least. We won’t get a buyer, but maybe we could loan him out with us paying less, he could be a big name for a lot of clubs.

    I see us targeting forward players similar to qualities in the Liv team. But I think we’ll be having high passing capabilities as one of the main traits, esp in midfield forwards. The energy levels, to keep going and going, I don’t think Laca and Ozil have it.
