These seven Arsenal players may have played their last game for the club

Arsenal will be looking to offload some of their players this summer as they continue the rebuilding of their team under Mikel Arteta.

The Gunners made the Spaniard their manager late last year and he has already brought in success and positivity to the club in his relatively short period in charge.

He won two trophies in August and the club is keen for the feel-good factor to remain.

They have signed Willian for free and Gabriel Magalhaes from Lille. These two won’t be the only signings that they will make in this transfer window, but the Gunners need to sell before they can buy more.

Standard Sports reveals that up to seven first-team players might be offloaded in this transfer window ahead of the new season.

The report claims that apart from Lucas Torreira who is closing in on a move to Fiorentina, the Gunners also hope to transfer out Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

The Greek defender could be followed by Sead Kolasinac, Rob Holding, Shkodran Mustafi, Callum Chambers and Hector Bellerin.

Bellerin is being targeted by PSG and the Spaniard is one member of the current first team that can fetch the Gunners a decent transfer fee.

  1. They can’t sell bellerin without getting cover first. Arguably Chambers can play there but you’re claiming they will sell him also.

    They’ve already revealed we can’t sell both Holding and Chambers (even if we wanted to) because that would put us under our homegrown/English player quota. Unless they promoted from the reserves which is doubtful Or bought another English player which is VERY unlikely given then overinflated costs on English players

    1. There is not homegrown quota. We just cannot have more than 17 non-homegrown players. Essentially the result is the same though, we need to get rid of deadwood non-homegrowns like Sokratis, Elneny, Kolasinac. I doubt we’ll see them all registered if they stay around.

  2. Surely the cover for bellerin is already at the club, ie Maitland-Niles and Soares.

    Personally i want us to keep our homegrown quote as it is meaning I would keep bellerin, chambers and holding.

    If I was naming 7 first reamers to sell it would be sokratis ozil, torreira, guendozi, kolasinac, mustafi, elneny

  3. The only players I would sell are Sokratis and Kolasinac.
    Mustafi is not so bad that we can’t use him as a squad player.
    We still don’t know how Saliba and Gabriel will perform despite the hype, jury is still on Mari imo.

    We can still loan Holding for this season and wait to see how our new arrivals perform before we sell all our assets cheaply

    1. Goonerboy, a bit of sense from you!!!
      If we are to compete in four competitions, then we need to have seasoned professionals and an adequate SQUAD.

      In my opinion, we will see just three, Soks, Torreria and Kolasinac leave… with the caveat that Bellerin might also go, if we can’t raise the money for Partey.
      There will be three /four new signings, including Willian and G abriel… only my opinion of course.

    2. 7 CB’s is still too many, and we need to make tough choices. I’m fine keeping Mustafi, but someone else would need to go then. All signs point towards Holding who is decent but not much more than that. If we want new players we need to sell. We cant hold onto everyone and CB is the clear area we have too many.

  4. I dont think home grown players are a problem with esr willock eddie nelson etc surly we have plenty? I have a feeling we have the money for partley already but are playing a game in order to sell players and hopefully lower prices of other target as everyone will think we are strapped for cash. I could be wrong tho just a thought. A hopeful one at that lol

  5. Elneny 9m
    Papa 4.5m
    Torriera £24m (loan to Permanent)
    Kolasnic £13m
    Holding £12m
    Guendouzi £25m

    Willian & Cabellos wages just to pay;
    -Mhiki 180k wages gone helps that

    £22m paid for Gabriel (27m in addons)

    Ozil would love to see him play if he is going to stay for the season, he was in training today,maybe he took Arteyas advice & Matteo didnt on a clean slate!? If not let him leave for free and get off the wage bill as hes not worth much maybe £10m if were lucky in this market.

    That has to be enough to be able to keep Bellerin, Laca & AMN to buy Thomas Partey for £45m?

  6. 1. Bellerin
    2. Sokratis
    3. Chambers
    4. Torreira
    5. Guendouzi

    These 5 players are just not Arsenal material.
    No technical skills whatsoever.

  7. I think arsenal should sell,Torreria,Sokratis,Guendouzi,Elneny,Kolasnic,mustafi, & keep bellerin cause he is loyal player for the gunners,

  8. 1)Toreira because he is unhappy
    2)Papa because no way is he ever going to break into that defence
    3)Guendouzi because of his temparament
    4)Kola because Germans want him and somebodys’ gotta go
    5)AMN because he has potential to fetch some good money
    6)Lacazatte because he is 29 and will be hard to sell next season,and we already have his replacement in Nketiah

    1. AMN has shown to be a fine player, and definitely one worth keeping, not to mention his versatility.
      You are having a laugh saying Nketiah is ready to step in for Lacazette. Martinelli is better than Nketiah in many aspects; height, strength, assisting, reading the game, and most importantly finishing. In fact, I have not seen or heard a single Arsenal fan that considers Nketiah better suited than Martinelli as a replacement.

  9. To the best of my knowledge, Bellerin has never played left back for Arsenal, but in Tierney, Saka and Kolasinic we have three players who have and in AMN and Soares we have players who are quite capable at RB and RWB.So Divine, your reasoning for retaining Bellerin as “not negotiable” simply does not hold water.
