Arsenal  have endured a difficult campaign this season and are currently in ninth place in the Premier League table.

They also fell out of the Europa League in the semi-finals, as former manager Unai Emery ousted them with his Villarreal side last week.

However, despite reports that Mikel Arteta is close to being shown the door, the Spaniard still has the backing of the Emirates hierarchy.

To that end, the club’s owners are keen to spend a lot this summer as they also look to make amends for the failed European Super League bid.

According to Football London, Arteta is ready to put six players in all up for sale to fund new additions.

Perhaps the most surprising of the six is Leno, with Arteta appearing to run out of patience with the error-strewn stopper.

The Gunners have already been linked with Ajax star Andre Onana as his replacement, Indeed, the reports suggest they could get the player, who is coming to the end of a 12-month ban for a doping violation, for just £7million. Lille’s Mike Maignan also remains an alternative option.

Spanish defender Hector Bellerin is also set to leave, having endured a difficult campaign.

Four players who spent the last season out on loan will also be moved on. Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, and Sead Kolasinac have all been identified.

The report adds that Arsenal wants at least £15m for both Torreira and Guendouzi. Maitland-Niles, meanwhile, could also fetch a decent fee.

Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson could also be shown the door in the summer, with the former having impressed with the Magpies.

The club will also lose the services of loan duo Dani Ceballos and Martin Odegaard this summer.

Arteta is not, at this stage, expected to push for an extended stay for Ceballos. It’s also understood that Real Madrid wants to bring Odegaard back into their first-team for next season.
