Emery Makes Plans To Sell Five Arsenal Stars As Part Of Summer Clearout

Arsenal manager Unai Emery wants to sell up to five players this summer, according to the Sun.

The Spaniard is said to be looking to make sweeping changes to the squad following the failure to finish in the top four during his first season in charge.

High wage earners such as Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be sold if a buyer can be found. At the moment, the two players currently earn a combined £530,000 a week, which amounts to £27.5m a year.

Moving the two playmakers on would then free up funds to improve the squad before the start of next campaign.

In addition, Emery is looking to find buyers for Shkodran Mustafi, Mohamed Elneny and Carl Jenkinson with all three deemed not good enough by the Gunners boss.

With Aaron Ramsey, Danny Welbeck and Petr Cech also departing this summer, the makeup of Arsenal’s squad could look a lot different come August.
