​Leno, Pepe among seven players Arsenal trying to sell

Arsenal are looking to sell several of their first team stars to continue their summer spending spree.

The Gunners have secured new signings in the form of Gabriel Jesus, Fabio Vieira, Marquinhos and Matt Turner this summer.

They are also looking to bring in Youri Tielemans from Leicester City, while they are rivaling Manchester United for Lisandro Martinez from Ajax.

According to The Sun, record signing Nicolas Pepe, along with Bernd Leno, Hector Bellerin, Lucas Torreira, Pablo Mari, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Reiss Nelson are all on the chopping block.

Manager Mikel Arteta wants to get players out to trim their squad, reduce the wage bill, and add funds to his transfer kitty.

The Gunners are hoping to build on last season's fifth placed finish, which saw them narrowly miss out on the Champions League.
