Arsenal are ready to sell four players to finance other transfers this summer

English club Arsenal are preparing to sell four players in order to fund further transfers this summer as they aim to further strengthen their squad to challenge for every trophy this season.

The Gunners have been busy in the summer transfer window, having already signed Kai Havertz, Jurrien Timber, Declan Rice and David Raya.

But Mikel Arteta is preparing for several players to leave this transfer window as the Spaniard looks to raise funds for further moves in the market.

According to Football Insider, left-back Kieran Tierney will be allowed to leave this summer following his absence against Nottingham Forest.

The report adds that Rob Holding, Nicolas Pepe and Nuno Tavares are also likely to leave the Emirates after being left out of the 23-man squad that beat Forest 2-1 on Saturday afternoon.

Arteta is also said to be after another attacking player before the transfer window closes in just two weeks.

But in order to fund a move, the Londoners will have to offload a few players as they try to balance the books and stay on the right side of Financial Fair Play laws.

Arsenal reportedly rejected a bid for Holding from Turkish giants Besiktas earlier in the summer, while Tierney was the subject of interest from Newcastle.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have been linked with Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte following reports that centre-back Gabriel Magalhaes could move to Saudi Arabia.
