Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is facing the task of trimming his squad after completing several high-profile signings this summer.
The Gunners have made significant acquisitions, securing the services of Kai Havertz, Jurrien Timber, and Declan Rice for substantial fees.
With their spending already exceeding £200 million, Arteta has been informed by sporting director Edu that he must offload players before bringing in more additions.
Arsenal’s interest in Ajax attacking midfielder Mohammed Kudus remains, but they are currently unable to proceed with a deal.
To create room in the squad and balance the books, Arteta is considering potential sales of players like Kieran Tierney, Cedric Soares, Nicolas Pepe, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Nuno Tavares, and Rob Holding.
These players could be candidates for departing the club in order to facilitate further transfer activity.
