The players the club is planning to let go include Matteo Guendouzi and Konstantinos Mavropanos, who are on loan to Marseille and Stuttgart, respectively, and Hector Bellerin, Lucas Torreira, Bernd Leno, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Pablo Mari, Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah.

The club is yet to decide on the futures of William Saliba and Reiss Nelson, who have impressed at Marseille and Feyenoord.

Arteta will add three academy prospects, Charlie Patino, Miguel Azeez and Omari Hutchinson, who he rates very highly, to his squad.
