Holding? Maitland-Niles? Arsenal planning massive clearout

Arsenal are planning a major summer clearout to help fund a £100m spending spree.

The Sun says the north London side will be forced to sell at least three of their current squad members and perhaps a couple more to fund their plans.

The futures of Lucas Torreira, £35m-rated midfielder Matteo Guendouzi, £25m-rated utility player Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Shkodran Mustafi are all unclear ahead of the new season.

But it claims the Gunners quartet could realistically join the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan - whose contract could be cancelled - and Mohamed Elneny through the Emirates Stadium exit door.

The report also adds that centre-backs Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Rob Holding could also be up for grabs.
