Emirates Stadium boss needs to sell before he can launch big money record breaking deal.
Arsene Wenger has ramped up his interest in Lille’s £30million-rated forward Eden hazard, but has warned fans he needs to generate the cash if he wants to spend big in the transfer market.
The Arsenal boss has long been an admirer of the 21-year-old Belgium international and has now made public his desire to sign him up in the summer.
However, the Frenchman has also revealed he is under pressure to deliver £15m-£20m in profit for the club through transfers each year and will be limited in the transfer market to how much he makes through sales.

So with that in mind here are five players who could happily be sold in to order to fully fund the £30m outlay needed to tempt Lille into selling their prized asset to the North London club.
Andrei Arshavin – £8m
Russian has been off form for the best part of two seasons and there is said to be very real interest from a number of Russian Premier League sides. Big spending Anzhi wouldn’t think twice about offering at least £8m for the 30 year old, an offer that Wenger would be mad to turn down.
