Emery wants to sell stars to boost Arsenal transfer kitty

Arsenal boss Unai Emery is prepared to sell star names to boost his transfer kitty.

The Mirror says Gunners boss Emery wants to completely shake up the squad and sees this summer as key to his entire time at Arsenal.

But Emery has been left with as little as £40m to spend on new players and must do it amid a difficult backdrop this summer.

Arsenal are set to bring in former midfielder Edu as their technical director but his arrival from Corinthians has been held up and therefore he cannot start working on their summer plans.

Emery will also have to generate more cash by selling players with big names Mesut Ozil, Shkodran Mustafi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan all potential casualties.

The biggest problem will be offloading them but Emery has had enough of under-performing players who do not fit into his style or philosophy which was highlighted in brutal fashion by the Europa League final humiliation to Chelsea.
