Arsenal Manager Unai Emery has hinted that the London club would actively seek to offload unwanted players prior to the deadline of the transfer window next month.
The Spanish Coach is keen on revamping his squad and has already acquired a plethora of new signings ahead of the forthcoming campaign.
Stephan Lichstiener, Berno Leno, Lucas Torreira, Sokratis Papasthappulous and Matteo Guendhozi have all been given shirt numbers as they begin another phase in their careers with the Gunners.
However, the influx of new players during the off-season appears to have made the squad over bloated and this led to the former Valencia boss publicly admitting he would look to make way with the deadwood.
“Maybe some players need to leave as our squad is too big. That is part of my work at the moment, but one part,”
the 43- year-old said in the aftermath of the victory over Lazio in a preseason friendly on Saturday.
Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla have already faced the axe while Danny Welbeck and Lucas Perez are widely expected to leave the North Londoners for regular first team football.
However, it remains uncertain if the Spaniard would add further reinforcements due to a limited budget in his first season at the Emirates Stadium.
Nevertheless, Arsenal sporting head of director Sven Milistat has been spotted around Europe on numerous occasions and it would be in the least surprising If they make further signings.
