There is “significant interest” in Arsenal trio Thomas Partey, Kieran Tierney and Rob Holding, according to The Mirror.
The Gunners need to raise funds if they want to make further signings this summer, after having spent over £200m already.
Most supporters on Twitter are happy for all three players to leave the Emirates, although there are some who would prefer either Partey or Tierney to stay:
Holding needs to get shipped out but it is in our best interest to keep the latter 2 for at least the next season. However if all 3 must leave and if we play our cards right we can make upwards of £80m here. £45m for Partey, £30m for KT and maybe £5m for Holding if we are lucky😂

Great news. Hopefully we make some sales in the next few days/weeks

Think Gabriel/ Kiwior / Zinchenko / Tomiyasu will be the LB options
Don’t want to see Partey go
Should be getting least £80/85m for these 3

If we can get a combined minimal amount of £80m [£30m Tierney, £10m Holding and £50m Partey] then I’ll say that’s good business.

Got to keep Tierney

If we can offload all fast enough we can still be in for Caicedo

Arteta will have to make some tough decisions
While Partey was a key player in Arsenal’s unlikely title challenge last season, his injury record has been poor since he arrived in London three years ago, and there is a feeling that, after Declan Rice’s arrival, he could be let go if the right offer comes in.
There have been plenty of rumours about bids from Saudi Arabia but nothing official has materialised yet.
When it comes to Tierney, Arteta has seemingly made it clear to the Scottish international that he won’t be a regular starter. Newcastle are one of the defender’s suitors, while a return to Celtic cannot be ruled out either. Rob Holding, meanwhile, has already been the subject of a £2m bid from Turkish Super Lig side Besiktas, which was rejected.
Arsenal want at least one more signing
The Mirror claim that the Gunners remain keen on recruiting a “right-sided forward” in order to take some of the weight off Bukayo Saka.
If they can sell a couple of the players, it seems the club will put the money directly towards another addition to the first-team squad.
