EPL: Should Arsenal have any worry over bid to sell players?


One thing that has been most talked about is the fact that the North London outfit Arsenal will sell some players to be able to bring in new ones but that has not happened as expected.

So far, the Gunners have only earned £20 million from the sale of Emi Martinez while a number of names that have been listed as part of those to leave the club are yet to seal any deal with their suitors.

The North London outfit have already secured the signature of Willian and Gabriel Magalhaes from Chelsea and Lille respectively but they still have other targets but cannot buy because of the lack of funds.

It is understood that the club must sell before they can bring in their remaining targets. However, efforts to sell Lucas Torreira seem to have suffered a setback as one of his suitors has backed out of the deal.

Italian Serie A outfit Torino are one of the suitors alongside Fiorentina and Atletico Madrid but the club has stepped down their interest with the claim that Lucas Torreira is expensive for the club to buy.

This means the option of selling the former Sampdoria midfielder has been limited to two but Atletico Madrid still remains a favoured destination as talks are still ongoing between the two clubs.
