Arsenal could sell one of their top stars this summer, according to reports in the Daily Telegraph, via HITC sports.
Arsene Wenger is looking to strengthen his squad considerably this summer and there could be a number of high profile casualties who could be forced out of the Emirates.
According to the report, there are three players that could be sold this summer. The named players include Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Kieran Gibbs and Theo Walcott.
The Trio had a poor season at the Emirates and could be allowed to leave as Wenger attempts to strengthen the squad.
Chamberlain has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs and Wenger is reportedly willing to part company with the 22 year old winger. Walcott is another who has been linked with a move away from the club. It is believed that Wenger is looking to strengthen his right wing with Mkhitaryan his top target and should the French man be able to sign a new winger, it would definitely spell the end of one of Walcott or Chamberlain’s future at the Emirates.
Gibbs future has also been a constant feature in the rumour mill with Liverpool said to be preparing a £12m bid for the 26 year old defender. Gibbs lost his first team place to Nacho Monreal this season and the defender is believed to be open to the idea of leaving the Emirates. Arsenal have been linked with both Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell and Wolfsburg Ricardo Rodriguez and Gibbs would be shown the exit door should Wenger secure any of these targets.
The trio have played key roles for the Gunners in the past but their lackluster performance this season has made them fall out of the first team picture. The club is prepared to be ruthless in strengthening it’s squad this summer and at least one is expected to be a casualty of the club’s transfer dealings.
