Arsenal are braced for a massive summer window, and rumours of who might be coming and going are starting to fire up.
As well as the potential ins, a few surprising names have been rumoured with leaving the club this transfer window with the Mirror reporting that Arsenal stars Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan might be offloaded this summer to make room for more transfer funds and to get their massive wages off the bill.
The duo have been in and out of the Arsenal team all season, with Ozil, in particular, failing to nail down a concrete place in Unai Emery’s starting XI after failing to adapt to the Spaniards new methods and style of play.
Unsurprisingly, the rumour has been met with harsh criticism by Arsenal fans on social media, with supporters angry that two of the most creative players in the team face the chop and that other players aren’t being prioritised when discussing potential exits.
Here are some of the responses to the news…
We have players like Mustafi and others to offload. Why Mhki?

After one season wanna offload three most creative players we got, or someone wants to build a new Stoke?
— Erpan Pardon (@yierpaen) 28 March 2019
Mustafi should be number 1 on this list.

That is very stupid we don’t have a quality squad. Ramsey is going and now offloading 2 good players. This is why we will never go forward. Why not cut down unnecessary top officials with high bonuses.

Getting rid of all 3 of our attacking midfielders in the same window

Offloading #Ozil is the worst move. I still believe in him

Weakening the midfield makes lots of sense for our title run.

I would keep both. Mhiki is doing his thing now since injury.
