Arsenal is bracing itself to offload some deadwood when the transfer window reopens.
Since Mikel Arteta became the club’s manager, the Spaniard has consistently changed the group at the Emirates.
He is always on the lookout for new talents and players who become surplus to requirements are sold off by the Gunners.
The next transfer window will not be much different as the Londoners prepare to play in the Champions League for the first time since 2017.
A report on The Sun says several players will be sold off by Arsenal, with the likes of Nicolas Pepe, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Albert Sambi-Lokonga, Nuno Tavares, Pablo Mari, Cedric Soares and Alex Runarsson all in line to leave.
These players are currently away from the club on loan and none has done well enough to earn a place at the Emirates in the next campaign.
Just Arsenal Opinion
As we become a top club, change is inevitable and we can understand why the gaffer is eager to keep only good players.
Mikel Arteta has worked very hard to change the culture at the Emirates and the last thing he needs now is to keep players that will undo his hard work.
When we offload these flops, we can add some new men to our group who will be influential squad members.

Arsenal is being prudent but of all the players listed Maitland Niles, deserves a second bite at the cherry.
So the gaffer continues to slash the wage bill while bringing down nonperforming loans, even the legendary Frenchman would be proud
Agree with you on this one about AMN. He is a perfect backup if KT wishes to leave.
Interestingly, five of the seven “flops” have been brought in by the present management team and, of the other two, one is our record signing under the auspices of Gazidis.
I just wonder how much the club will lose if and when these six transfers take place?
Of course, the one player we won’t lose any money on, is AMN, a product of our Hales End Academy.
I read somewhere today, that the true price of Pepe, including transfer and salary is nigh on approaching the £100,000,000 figure!!!!
It just highlights how much the Kronkies have been backing the club, with losses like this.
