The three Arsenal players to reportedly leave as club continues its revamping of its squad

This year’s summer transfer window will be one of the most important ones in Arsenal’s history as the club will be looking to give full support to Mikel Arteta who has shown that he is a great manager that can be trusted. The gunners have so far signed Willian and Gabriel Magalhaes but they will however need to sell as well and a report has revealed the three players that could be on their way out.

Arsenal finished in the 8th position on the Premier League last season even though they won the Emirates FA Cup, it’s still not a surprise that the club would try to trim on that squad since it underperformed and Sky Sports via their transfer show have revealed that Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Lucas Torreira and Sead Kolasinac could all be on their way out of the North London club this summer.

Lucas Torreira will apparently be joining Serie A side Torino who have been pursuing the Uruguayan international all summer and it’s not come as a surprise to many that his time at the Emirates Stadium is coming to an end as he has always shown to be home sick as he has been linked with a move back to Italy since 2019. Arsenal centre back Sokratis Papastathopoulos is also close to a move to Napoli as it looks like the Geek centre back is not in the plans of Mikel Arteta for this season as he is not great on the ball.

The Sky Sports transfer show panel also reveals that West Ham United have shown interest in Arsenal’s left back Sead Kolasinac. The gunners will be looking to revamp their squad this summer as Mikel Arteta will want to finally get the North London club back to the UEFA Champions League this season.

Ligue 1 lawmakers make decision that affects Houssem Aouar amid talk of Arsenal offer

Houssem Aouar’s latest appearance in Lyon colours was one he will want to forget in a hurry.

The midfielder, who has been linked with a move to Arsenal this summer, started Tuesday evening’s Ligue 1 clash away at Montpellier, but didn’t see out the whole game.

As Montpellier defender Arnaud Souquet attempted to clear the ball from his own byline, Aouar came in with a challenge and his studs made contact across his opponent’s shin.

The challenge was enough to see him sent for an early bath and the hosts made their one-man advantage count.

Already one up at the time of Aouar’s sending off, they would go on to double their lead with Teji Svanier scoring his second of the evening which meant a Memphis Depay reply from the spot wasn’t enough to save Lyon from defeat.

In Ligue 1, the league’s disciplinary committee decide how many games red card recipients miss.

And it’s now been confirmed by Get French Football News on Twitter that Aouar will only miss one game which is this weekend’s home game against Nimes.

This means Aouar will be available for selection again for the Lorient fixture which is set to take place on September 27.

But will he still be at Lyon at the end of the month?

Aouar’s suspension comes at a time when it’s been reported that Arsenal are preparing to make a bid for his services.

And if the Gunners are successful with their offer and conclude a deal within the next 10 days, then the 44-minute appearance against Montpellier will turn out to be Aouar’s last in a Lyon shirt.

With that said, Aouar won’t have too many distractions – at least for the next week or so – and will be able to focus on sorting out his future.
