GOOD MORNING ARSENAL FANS
With the season opener just eight days away rumours continue to swirl on who will be starting up front for the Gunners against Brentford.
Inter’s Lautaro Martinez has been linked with a move to North London, but with a deal for the Argentinian likely to cost upwards of £70million outgoings are likely before a deal can be done for the 23-year-old.
Joe Willock’s future is up in the air, with Newcastle still interested in tying up the 21-year-old on another loan deal following a successful spell at St. James’ Park last season.
Arsenal are said to be taking their time on making a decision, as they wait to decide whether Willock’s services will be needed at the Emirates this season.
The Gunners also remain interested in signing James Maddison from Leicester, with the 24-year-old reportedly open to a move away from the Foxes.
As a result the North London club have reportedly put six players up for sale, according to Football London.
Hector Bellerin, Sead Kolasinac, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Willian, Reiss Nelson and Eddie Nketiah are all reportedly available for transfer as the north Londoners target a squad rebuild.
A combined £75million has already been spent this summer on Nuno Tavares, Albert Sambi Lokonga and Ben White, but Arsenal are keen to continue the spending.
And having been linked with a £70m bid for Inter Milan star Lautaro Martinez and James Maddison for a similar fee, outgoings would be necessary to fund those moves.
