- Unai Emery is getting set for a major squad overhaul of his team in the summer
- This will be the first summer window transfer for the Spanish boss since his arrival
- The Spaniard has now identified up to seven players who could be offloaded to fund his expenditure
Unai Emery will reportedly be handed £45million for the next transfer window, and the Spaniard has identified up to seven Arsenal players who could be sold to fund his expected expenditure in the summer.
Emery is set to oversee a massive squad overhaul at the end of the season having identified players who need to be offloaded.
The tactician has enjoyed a relatively bright debut at the Emirates as the Gunners are in contention for a top four finish and Europa League glory.
However, Arsenal's recent dismal performance in the domestic scene has highlighted the need for new legs at the club next season.
According to a UK Mirror report citing the Daily Mail, Emery has identified Shkodran Mustafi among the players who could be shown the door.
The German defender put up a disappointing show against Crystal Palace at the weekend as the North Londoners went on to suffer a 3-2 defeat.
