Arsenal is facing a huge upheaval in the summer with news that they will be offloading two of their best players in a bid to raise funds for new signings.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil will be sold in the summer according to the British media so that the Gunners can get their combined wages of £530,000 per week off the books and enable them to bring in younger players on more manageable wages.
Arsenal will have a transfer budget of just £45 Million, however, that will rise once they sell the pair and if they make the Champions League.
Additionally, they will further cut their wage bill once Aaron Ramsey departs and Petr Cech retires.
This all means that there will be a significant turnaround in playing staff with at least four fresh signings on the cards.
The Gunners have been linked with a whole range of players but until they offload the high earners and raise their transfer budget their options are very limited, especially when most of their nearest rivals are expected to be spending heavily in the summer.
