New Arsenal manager Unai Emery is reportedly considering selling seven players before the end of the transfer window in order to raise funds for two more arrivals.

New Arsenal manager Unai Emery is reportedly considering selling up to seven first-team players in a bid to raise funds for two more signings this summer.

The Gunners have already been busy in the current transfer market, bringing in Lucas Torreira, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Bernd Leno, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Matteo Guendouzi to shore up their defence and midfield.

However, reports that Emery still wants to sign a new winger and a new left-back before the end of the window, and will need to raise funds from sales if he is to do so.

The likes of Shkodran Mustafi, Nacho Monreal and Petr Cech are among the players reportedly at risk of getting the axe, despite making 110 appearances across all competitions between them last season.

Other fringe players such as David Ospina, Danny Welbeck, Lucas Perez and Carl Jenkinson could also be shipped out by the Spaniard as he looks to trim his squad, which currently contains 31 players.

Arsenal begin their Premier League campaign at home to champions Manchester City before facing London rivals Chelsea a week later.
