Arsenal to sell 10 players in cost-cutting measure

 Mikel Arteta has already moved on plenty of big name players over the last few transfer windows but a report says that many more will follow as they continue to miss out on UEFA Champions League cash.

According to Mark Irwin from The Sun, the highest-profile casualties would be Alexandre Lacazette and David Luiz as Arsenal try to reduce their weekly wage bill by at least $1 million.

The former has just over a year left on his current Arsenal contract, while the latter is a free agent this summer but it was previously believed that the Gunners would offer Luiz a new contract.

Lacazette has found a starting spot hard to nail down since Arteta took charge, while Luiz, 33, divides opinion and has had some truly great games (the FA Cup run last year) mixed in with some shockers for Arsenal.

Some of the other Arsenal players to be sold this summer could be: Joe Willock, Matteo Guendouzi, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Sead Kolasinac and Lucas Torreira, who are all out on loan until the end of the season, plus Reiss Nelson and Eddie Nketiah could also be sold.

Arsenal want to make their loan moves for Mat Ryan, Dani Ceballos and Martin Odegaard permanent but they may also move on due to financial restrictions.
