It is expected to be a huge clearout at the English Premier League club Arsenal as Mikel Arteta is reportedly ready to let go of ten players to make way for the new signings.
The Spanish manager took over the job as the Gunners boss in December last year and this is going to be his first major summer transfer deal.
He has already completed the signature of Brazilian international Willian and has made the loan deals of Pablo Mari and Cedric Soares permanent but he is expected to make more signings, especially with the claims that he is close to sealing a deal for Lille defender, Gabriel Magalhaes.

However, 10 players are expected to leave the North London club, according to The Times before the transfer window ends in October.
While Sokratis Papa has been confirmed and told to find a new club, Ainsley Maitland-Niles could also be on his way out alongside Rob Holding and Calum Chambers.
The report also adds that Arsenal outcast Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira will join the other two defenders to leave the club this summer window, including two attackers that are yet to be named but Frenchman Alexandre Lacazette is being rumoured to be on his way out.
