The Arsenal could be planning a ‘cleanup’ by way of sale of players with the aim of reducing salary mass this next summer. The ‘gunner’ club needs to reduce chips to have more liquidity and, according to The Sun, it has made a list of players for whom it could hear offers: Alexandre Lacazette, Matteo Guendouzi, David Luiz and Lucas Torreira.
The pandemic has left stadiums around the world empty and that has meant a brutal lack of income, so clubs try to find savings formulas given the prospect that, in the short term, the situation will not change. In fact, Arsenal had to ask the bank for a millionaire loan a little over a month ago to stop the first blow. As if that were not enough, he doubts that the team will not be able to qualify to play in Europe next season.
The idea is to buy Ceballos and Odegaard
Chief Executive Vinai Venkatesham has already started the economic boost by canceling the contracts of Mesut Özil, Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis Papastathopoulos. Additionally, Kolasinac, Maitland-Niles and Joe Willock were also loaned last month, saving Arsenal a few million in salaries for the remainder of this season.
But it seems that all these measures are not enough and other players with high chips are targeted. The goal with all this savings plan is to be able to stay, according to The Sun, Ceballos and Odegaard.
