Arsenal could be set for £100m+ selling spree after £211m outlay on signings

Arsenal have been the busiest Premier League club during the transfer window, and they have already signed Kai Havertz from Chelsea in a deal worth £65 million.

The club are now in advanced talks to land Declan Rice and Jurrien Timber from West Ham United and Ajax respectively. They could cost a combined fee of £146m.

After a £211m buying spree, it is anticipated that the Gunners will aim to recoup funds from departures in the coming months.

The north London outfit are already assured to receive £6m from Pablo Mari’s permanent move to Monza. The conditional buy clause on his contract was triggered.

Meanwhile, Granit Xhaka has been heavily fancied to join Bayer Leverkusen with personal terms agreed. He could return to Bundesliga for around £13m next month.

Aside from the duo, there could be several more exits between now and the end of the summer transfer window.

Folarin Balogun has been put up for sale after his positive loan stint with Reims. The Gunners graduate is most likely to leave with his desire to play regular football.

The Gunners are open to sanctioning his summer exit for a fee in the region of £35m. Crystal Palace are one of the clubs that have expressed an interest in his services.

Elsewhere, Rob Holding could leave with the arrival of Jurrien Timber, who will strengthen Arsenal’s central defensive department.

The former Bolton Wanderers ace could be followed through the exit door by Nuno Tavares (valued at £8m) and Cedric Soares.

Taking the Transfermarkt values of Holding and Soares, Arsenal could recoup around £17m from the departure of the trio.

One of Kieran Tierney or Thomas Partey could also head for the exit door. Tierney is valued at over £30m while Thomas Partey already has offers of £34m from Saudi Arabia.

From the above players, Arsenal could recoup at least £100m. They should receive more from the sales of Nicolas Pepe, Charlie Patino, Auston Trusty and possibly Albert Sambi Lokonga.

The club are likely to focus on outgoings over the coming weeks but hand-in-hand, they could work on possible incomings too.

Arsenal are still in the transfer market for more signings. As things stand, Arsenal have a genuine interest in landing Southampton’s Romeo Lavia, but it depends on Partey leaving.
