Arteta prepared to sacrifice several senior Arsenal players this summer

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is prepared to sacrifice several senior players this summer.

Arsenal are open to offers for a number of their players this summer with the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Granit Xhaka linked with moves away from the Emirates.

The Athletic reports Arsenal, like most clubs, will listen to offers for many of their players this summer.

Whether they end up selling them or not is a different matter. Values will drop across the board.

Arsenal are mainly looking to strengthen in central defence, holding midfield and attack - but that will largely depend on what happens with existing players such as Pablo Mari, Cedric Soares, Shkodran Mustafi, Granit Xhaka, Lucas Torreira, Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.
