Overhaul: Arsenal To Offload These FOUR Defenders This Summer In Massive Clearance At The Back

arsenal defensive clearance, four defenders targeted to be sold

Summer has rolled in and brought the transfer window along with it. And Arsenal are bankrupt as usual, as per the Mirror.

Failing to qualify for the Champions League means the Gunners are left with a very meagre transfer budget. As reported by David Ornstein, Arsenal have a total of £40 million, plus whatever they can salvage from player sales.

With an unsettling budget figure, they’re clearly left with no choice but to offload certain players to generate funds. And seems like Unai Emery is prepared to take the necessary measures by offloading 4 players.

Stephan Lichtsteiner has already announced his departure after his disappointing stint at the Emirates. The Swiss international’s contract had the option to extend his stay for another year, but the club chose not to opt for that. Lichtsteiner was a disappointing appointment and it’s so surprise the club has chosen to let him go.

Moreover, he might be followed by fellow defenders Shkodran Mustafi, Nacho Monreal and Laurent Koscielny.

Mustafi has been nothing but a bipolar presence since his return to England. The German does put up good displays but has cost the club even more. The fans have also given up on him and it’s honestly about time the club did as well.

Monreal and Koscielny are both 33-years-old and are clearly past their prime. Both of them have been great servants to the club. But if the North Londoners were to improve, they must move on from aging players.

The Frenchman is undoubtedly one of the best defenders to play for the English giants since their move to the Emirates. Fair to say that he will be missed by everyone.

Meanwhile, the Emirates outfit have been linked with Samuel Umtiti, Mario Hermoso and William Saliba. Though these players seem out of reach financially, sales of some players may let the signing of at least one of these possible.

Anti Kroenke , anti Gazidis but always a gooner. Still wishes he could watch from the stands at the Highbury library.
