Arsenal could sell up to EIGHT players.

Mikel Arteta wants a ‘change of mindset’ and is prepared to release up to eight players in January and over the summer.

Shkodran Mustafi, Mohamed Elneny, Reiss Nelson, Callum Chambers, Folarin Balogun, Joe Willock, as well as obvious outcasts like Mesut Ozil, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, and Sead Kolasinac are among those deemed expendable at the Emirates.

With finances currently strained, the Gunners are also unlikely to make additions to their squad in January. [Independent]
