Report: Arsenal plotting summer fire sale with a raft of first-team stars on the chopping block


Arsenal are plotting a summer fire sale with the club potentially looking to get rid of 10 first-team players, according to The Sun.

The likes of Alexandre Lacazette, David Luiz, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi could all be on the chopping block as the Gunners look to trim their squad even further.

Costs are high in north London with the threat of no European football over the horizon, whilst the club have a short-term loan of £120m to pay back.

Will Arsenal play European football next season?



January proved to be one of the more successful transfer windows the club has had in a very long time. The squad was cleared out of many players, who weren’t getting a look in as Mikel Arteta wielded his axe. The likes of Mesut Ozil, Shkodran Mustafi, Sead Kolasinac and Sokratis were all let go as the squad was trimmed.

To hear that the club are looking to make further changes to their squad fills me with glee over the fact change is finally coming. Arsenal have been too quick to give time to some of these players, who have failed the outfit time and time again.

Change is required on the pitch and if it means a fire sale has to be undertaken for it to come about then it’s the right move.

However, whilst we may see more exits, I would be cautious over expecting too many big-money arrivals at the end of the season. The current pandemic has hit the world pretty hard and Arsenal are no exception especially with fans having been banned from attending events. Taking out a loan proves that money is tight and that further signings will be a struggle.

In other news, Michael Thomas has lent his support to this club figure.
