Arsenal have plans to offload some of their players this summer as they continue the rebuilding of their team under boss Mikel Arteta.
The Spaniard was made Gunners manager late last year and he has already brought in success and positivity to the club in his relatively short period in charge.
He won two trophies in August and Arsenal is keen for the feel-good factor to remain.
The Emirates club have signed Willian for free and Gabriel Magalhaes from Lille.
These two won’t be the only signings that Arteta’s side will make in this transfer window, but Arsenal need to sell before they can buy more.
According to Standard Sports, up to seven first-team Arsenal players might be offloaded in this transfer window ahead of the new season.
The report say that apart from Lucas Torreira who is closing in on a move to Fiorentina, the North London club also hope to transfer out Sokratis Papastathopoulos.
The Greek defender could be followed by Sead Kolasinac, Rob Holding, Shkodran Mustafi, Callum Chambers and Hector Bellerin.
Bellerin is being targeted by PSG and the Spaniard is one member of the current first team that can fetch Arsenal a decent transfer fee.
