Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta is desperate to give a new boost to his team. The Spaniard desperately wants to sign a midfielder, a center back, and a right-back in new transfer plans.
To raise funds for new signings, the Arsenal coach is willing to sell his valuable asset, Bukayo Saka this summer.
Saka has been one of Arsenal’s most decisive players this season but has been unable to save Arsenal from having a disappointing campaign.
Mikel wants to look for fresh legs that will enable him to challenge for titles next season, with the team’s chances of competing in European competition holding in balance.
The club sits in the middle of the Premier League table, with a chance to win Europa league becoming almost the only route to European competition next season, although mathematically they can finish by seeing off their Premier League counterparts to finish in European qualification spot in an uphill task.
The Metro Uk noted that Arsenal’s transfer activìties could be impacted if Arsenal fails to finish in the top six, and misses to win the Europa title.
According to the Times Publication, Arteta could be starved with finances that he requires to rebuild his team if the team doesn’t book a European competition spot.
It is for this reason that Arteta has turned to offload Bukayo Saka in what is seen as a move to boost his transfer kitty.
The Arsenal academy graduate has enjoyed
a sensational campaign this season, and has scored 5 times in the league to prove his class.
However, it is understood selling the club’s most valuable asset comes as a last resort for a club that is ready to sell its fringe players.
While players such as Hector Bellerin, Calum Chambers, Eddie Nketiah, and Rob Holding are believed to be on the Arsenal chopping board, Matteo Guendouzi, Sead Kolasinac, Lucas Torreira, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, and Konstantinos Mavropanos have all possible players likely to leave to give room for the new signings.
