Arsenal preparing to approve £50m departure to fund spending spree


Arsenal are under immense pressure to turn a corner this summer, after another disappointing campaign has left the Gunners way off the pace in the chase for the biggest honours.

Wholesale changes could be made in the close season, which could include changing manager for the first-team in over two decades, but big calls won’t just orientate around Arsene Wenger’s future, as it’s indicated the Gunners are considering a major sale.

The Daily Mail states that Arsenal are ready to approve the departure of Hector Bellerin for £50m, amidst growing interest from Juventus- and it could reignite Barcelona’s interest in the Spanish full-back.

22-year-old Bellerin has seen his form drop in recent seasons, which seems to have led Arsenal to believe he’s expendable, and a major sale would provide funds for Head of Recruitment Sven Mislintat to overhaul the squad.

The former Borussia Dortmund chief is said to be eyeing a new goalkeeper, central defender and holding midfielder this summer, with the likes of Alban Lafont, Jonny Evans and Mohamed Elyounoussi linked with the Emirates Stadium.
