The most likely high profile Arsenal star to be sold this summer revealed

This summer will be an important one for Arsenal as the Gunners look to make next season a good one.

Mikel Arteta has done a great job since he became the club’s manager and the Spaniard will look to have a decent first full season to prove how good he is.

Arsenal’s summer transfer market plan remains unclear, but one position on the team that might experience changes is the striker position.

The Gunners are looking to tie down their top scorer and club captain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to a new deal as he enters the final year of his current contract.

However, the Gunners also have to deal with the future of Alexandre Lacazette.

The Frenchman has been struggling under Arteta and the emergence of Eddie Nketiah might also push him out of the starting XI sooner, rather than later.

The Gunners are facing a summer of uncertainty over the future of Aubameyang and Lacazette, but the Telegraph is claiming that Arsenal are more likely to cash in on Lacazette than Aubameyang.

The Frenchman was on top form last season, but he has struggled to build on his performances in this campaign.

When the transfer window reopens, Arteta’s plans should become clearer and if this report from the Telegraph is true then the Spaniard would rather hold on to Aubameyang and sell Lacazette.

    If he’s high profile, why should he be sold?

    A couple of the young players and Leno are the only ones I would not sell.

    I don’t think that Auba wants to be there, his body language is getting to be somewhat like Sanchez before he left (and I am not suggesting they are the same – Auba is frustrated and it affects his work rate). He has one more shot at getting a big prize and it cannot be at Arsenal – Gunners are too far away from good and don’t have enough money to throw at players.

    Lacazette can be sold, any central player can be sold – mid or defence. Ozil can’t be sold so we just have to let the contract run down.

    I like Saka and Martinelli. There are others that impress for a shift or game but then disappear.

    I don’t know if we can really assess the full backs because the middle is so weak.

    That is about as pessimistic as I get!

    Oh yeah, I don’t think we can get much for Pepe so not sure it is worth selling him.
