Four players could leave Arsenal during this transfer window

It’s clear that the London giants efforts will be focussed on bringing Houssem Aouar to the Emirates Stadium before the transfer window shuts, but it’s not clear if they “need” to sell footballers first to get that deal over the line.

Even if they can find a deal with the Les Gones based on their current finances, they still have a few positions that are bloated so it would make sense to cut some of the deadwood.

Many reports are going around and it sounds like some footballers are closer to an exit than others, but it seems like the following footballers could still be headed for the exit door. Sokratis has had his ups and downs but he’s now 32 years old and in the final year of his deal, so it’s clear that he doesn’t have a long term role to play at Arsenal.

It’s taken Kieran Tierney a little while to find his fitness and settle into the Gunners team, but he’s proven that he’s a top-class footballer who can be relied upon at the highest level, so Sead Kolasinac won’t be anything more than a backup option going forward.

Despite whispers of a clean slate and Matteo Guendouzi working his way back into the side, there’s been no tangible sign of that happening and adding more midfielders will only push him further down the pecking order.

Lucas Torreira hasn’t lived up to expectations in England and a move seems like the best thing for him, especially if he’s not in the Spanish manager’s plans. While nothing seems completely imminent, it does look like we should expect plenty of transfer activity at the London club before the window shuts.
