Unai Emery is looking to sign two more first team players this summer but the Arsenal boss will have to sell before he can buy again, according to Goal.
Emery has already been extremely busy in the transfer market since replacing Arsene Wenger as the new boss has spent around £70m on Bernd Leno, Lucas Torreira, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Matteo Guendouzi in recent weeks.
The Spaniard has been linked with a number of players in the media and Goal claim Emery remains keen to bring in two further signings – namely a winger and a left-back – but he’ll have to sell before he can buy after blowing his initial transfer budget on our five new signings.
The report says Arsenal are willing to listen to offers for Nacho Monreal, Shkodran Mustafi, Danny Welbeck, Petr Cech, David Ospina, Carl Jenkinson and Lucas Perez in order to help raise extra funds for Emery.
At least one of Cech or Ospina will leave following the arrival of Leno while Sokratis will push Mutafi down the pecking order and the German international could be sold after struggling to adapt to life in England since joining from Valencia two years ago.
Jenkinson and Perez are also expected to find new clubs after spending last season out on loan while Welbeck’s future at Arsenal is in serious doubt as he has just one year remaining on his contract and has struggled with injuries over the past four year.
The former Manchester United forward isn’t going to get in ahead of the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette or Henrikh Mkhitaryan next season and Goal claims Emery wants to sign a pacey winger and is willing to sacrifice Welbeck in order to help fund his transfer plans.
Interestingly, the report also says Monreal doesn’t seem to be in Emery’s plans as the boss is on the look out for a new left-back amid speculation linking Nacho with a move back to Spain this summer.
It would be a shame to see Monreal leave as he’s been a great servant for the club but he’s 32 and if Emery feels we need fresh blood on the left side of the defence, then we have to back the manager.
