Arsenal prepare eight-man clearout to fund Arteta’s squad overhaul

The Gunners are short on funds and will need to trim the wage bill by moving on up to eight players before making signings



Isco is not considered a target by Mikel Arteta, according to The Athletic.

But now it appears the club’s priorities lie elsewhere.


Genoa are keen on Sokratis Papastathopoulos, report Corriere dello Sport.

The Greek defender is out of favour at the Emirates and Mikel Arteta will likely move him on in the coming weeks or by next summer.

Sokratis could be offered the captaincy at the Serie A club to tempt him, with Arsenal set to move on from their £17m signing.
