Arsenal to show nine players the door?

English Premier League

Just days after winning the FA Cup, Arsenal could reportedly show nine players the exit door as part of a major overhaul ahead of next season.

Despite the club's Cup success over the weekend, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is still reportedly planning to shake things up at the Emirates Stadium next season and will reportedly look to offload some of his star players to fund his transfer business.

Arteta's shortlist includes the club's long-time target Thomas Partey and FC Barcelona outcast Philippe Coutinho, both of whom are currently out of Arsenal's reach without a new source of funding.

To that end, the Daily Mail report that the Spaniard could look to offload as many as nine players, including Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Matteo Guendouzi, Lucas Torreira, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Sead Kolasinac, Shkodran Mustafi and Rob Holding,

The report claims further that the record 14-time FA Cup winners would also listen to bids for star players Alexandre Lacazette and Hector Bellerin if the right offer was made, although there is no indication that the club is actively looking to offload either player. 

Mesut Ozil is another name that has been linked with an exit from North London, although his reported £350 000 (R7.8 million)-a-week salary has all-but put an end to any possibility of his departure.
