Having cleared the decks a bit this season, Arteta is said to be eager to get rid of Lucas Torreira, currently on loan at Atlético Madrid, Héctor Bellerin and striker Alexandre Lacazette.


Although the Spaniard has stated that they are in talks about a possible new agreement for the forward.


Fabrizio Romano says Arsenal will look to Brighton for Tariq Lamptey to replace Hector Bellerin, who has been linked with a move to PSG in recent weeks.


Lamptey is currently injured but enjoyed an impressive start on the South Coast after his £3 million transfer from Chelsea. It is believed that Arsenal would have to pay around £30 million to attract him to the Emirates.
