Arsenal £150m Summer Rush EXCLUSIVE, Jesus fights Spurs, Leno set to join Benfica, Kroenke to ‘back’ Arteta

Up to NINE Gunners face the ax in a £150m spree

Arsenal are trying to scrape £60m from a yard sale at Emirates from players no longer in their plans. writes MARK IRWIN.

The club are ready to spend up to £150m this summer but want to offset some of that by selling seven excess players at bargain prices.

Matteo Guendouzi and Konstantinos Mavropanos have already netted £12.5million after being transferred to Marseille and Stuttgart respectively.

Now Arsenal are trying to negotiate more bargain deals for Hector Bellerin, Lucas Torreira, Bernd Leno, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Pablo Mari.

Arteta has told technical director Edu he needs 22 outfield players to handle the extra demands of Europa League football next season.

With Alex Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah both leaving as free agents and Mohamed Elneny in the process of signing a new one-year contract with an option for a further 12 months, Arsenal currently only have 16 experienced outfield players on their books.

That number could be boosted with the return of William Saliba and possibly Reiss Nelson from their current loan deals.

And Arteta is ready to give promising youngsters like Charlie Patino, Miguel Azeez and Omari Hutchinson a chance to make their mark in Europa League group games.

But he’s looking to make four more high-profile signings this summer as he’s looking for two forwards, a central midfielder and possibly another full-back. Arsenal £150m Summer Rush EXCLUSIVE, Jesus fights Spurs, Leno set to join Benfica, Kroenke to ‘back’ Arteta
