Good morning, Arsenal fans
Up to eight senior Gunners could be offloaded this summer.
That’s top of the weekend speculation – with Emile Smith Rowe the surprising name on the list.
It’s claimed Arsenal will make a decision on the injury-hit England wideman at the end of the season.
The other seven players are out on loan – Nicolas Pepe, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Sambi Lokonga, Nuno Tavares, Pablo Mari, Cedric Soares and Alex Runarsson.
But the Gunners reportedly might have to pay £72million club record signing Pepe to leave.
The Ivory Coast winger, 27, is with Nice for the season.
But he has another year left on his £140,000-a-week deal – amid suggestions no club has shown serious interest in buying him.
Boss Mkel Arteta still expects to tie Bukayo Saka and William Saliba to new long-term deals soon – following on from Gabriel Martinelli’s.
