Arsenal could see a mass exodus this summer with the futures of six players up in the air, according to reports.
The Gunners’ 2020-21 Premier League campaign has been abysmal with Mikel Arteta’s outfit languishing down in 10th but they are in the Europa League semi-finals, which could salvage their season.
Nevertheless it’s no secret that Arteta needs and wants to strengthen his squad this summer and in order to improve their funds for new recruits six players could be sold, according to Football London.

In order to improve the club’s funds for new signings six players could reportedly be sold as technical director Edu (L) and manager Mikel Arteta (R) look to make Arsenal a force again
The report indicates that Arsenal are willing to offload striker Eddie Nketiah, midfielders Matteo Guendouzi, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Lucas Torreira to bolster their transfer kitty.
Striker Alexandre Lacazette, who will enter the final year of his contract at the Emirates in June, could also depart to raise money. The 29-year-old has been linked with a move away with his future uncertain.
Selling those five players has the potential to bring in around £100m while right back Hector Bellerin could also be cashed-in on to take the possible income to around the £120m-mark.
Alexandre Lacazette (L) and Hector Bellerin (R) have been linked to moves away from Emirates
Bellerin’s deal does not expire until the summer of 2023 but like Lacazette he has been linked with an exit with Paris Saint-German and Barcelona reportedly interested.
Arsenal are eager to sign Real Madrid creative midfielder Martin Odegaard on a permanent deal as he’s impressed on loan and there is also speculation linking Inter Milan’s Achraf Hakimi with a switch to north London.
Football clubs are still feeling the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic with fans still prohibited from attending matches. Arsenal also announced a £47.8m loss after tax for the 2019-20 season in March.
However the Gunners’ financial clout could change as Spotify owner Daniel Ek is adamant he has the funds to test Stan Kroenke’s resolve and has teamed up with club legends Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira to launch his sensational bid to buy the Gunners.
Arsenal fans staged a huge protest against Kroenke last Friday prior to their 1-0 defeat by Everton. The already unpopular owner came under further fire after he joined six other Premier League clubs in initially signing up to the controversial European Super League last week.
