Surprise name heads list of 17 Arsenal stars that may need to be sold in the summer

After a hugely disappointing performance against Liverpool, it’s back to the drawing board for Mikel Arteta and Arsenal.

The 3-0 home defeat in which the Gunners were abject for long periods, leaves them back in 10th place and some seven points shy of a Europa League place.

There are only eight games left of the 2020/21 campaign, and Arsenal still have to face Newcastle, Fulham, West Bromwich Albion and Brighton and Hove Albion, all of whom are battling to stay in the English top-flight.

Chelsea and Everton are looking at finishing in the European places, and they too face the Gunners before season’s end.

It’s a bleak outlook for Arteta and his side, and should they not qualify for Europe for the first time in a quarter of a century, it could spell disaster for the north Londoners.

According to the Daily Mail, the Spaniard could be forced into selling Bukayo Saka as well as up to 16 other first-team stars.

Hector Bellerin, Granit Xhaka, David Luiz and Alexandre Lacazette are also amongst those at risk.

The only saving grace for the Gunners will be if they manage to win this season’s Europa League.

Slavia Prague currently stand in their way, but if they were to go on an lift the trophy, they would find themselves in next season’s Champions League.

It’s a big ask certainly but a potential lifeline nonetheless.

    Selling Bukayo Saka makes no sense at all. This is another lack of foresight by Arteta. We should rise and condemn this hopeless act by a senseless pretender. This is after he sold Martinez and we all seen how wrong this was. What’s next, selling some parts of Emirates stadium?

    sometimes I can’t understand why Arteta is trusting old players like Willian and yet he has martinielli now he wants to bring Aguero .Next season we are going to be no 15 if Arteta is not going to drop his favourite players ; pepe , laca

    Arteta with the entire crew plotting this move as well as the whole recruitment panel must be a joke for this unthinkable move.

    how on Earth will you want to sell your one of the few gamechanger you have in saka,and retain some overrated,pensioners, unproductive deadwoods.

    Except for UEL victory,may be by miracle,no top player would want to come to a club like present day arsenal and be languishing in midtable without any hope to guarantee play UCL or at least Europa league,which arsenal cannot offer now .

    well,if they have their way, maybe we will finish 15th next season.

    I won’t imagin selling such a precious talent in the name of saka! Ok Arsenal sometimes are funny, look at what Gnabry is doing at bayern, how much can we cough for his signature, and how much did we receive for him? This is arsenal
