Arsenal: Club will listen to offers for Rob Holding, Sokratis and maybe Shkodran Mustafi says David Ornstein - Arsenal

Arsenal will listen to offers for Rob Holding, Sokratis and maybe Shkodran Mustafi as David Ornstein said on The Ornstein and Chapman Podcast (via LT Arsenal‘s Twitter page).

Indeed, the north London club may be looking for a new central defender or two in the upcoming summer transfer window, which will also see William Saliba return from his loan spell at Saint-Etienne and Pablo Mari possibly signed on a permanent basis from Flamengo.

There have been rumours in the past that the Gunners would like to sign RB Leipzig central defender Dayot Upamecano, with German publication Bild reporting that a bid worth 60 million euros was rejected last summer.

Do you think Arsenal can sign Upamecano?

Yes

Yes

No

No

If Mikel Arteta were to return with another offer this summer, then the Gunners may have to consider just how many centre-backs they would have on their books.

With David Luiz being the Spanish manager’s most used defender so far this season, complemented with the 18 appearances Calum Chambers made in all competitions this campaign before his rather unfortunate cruciate ligament rupture injury before the turn of the year, there only leaves a few CB’s that AFC could possibly get rid of.

question mark

Who was George Graham's first signing for the club?

In steps Holding, Sokratis and Mustafi. If Upamecano joins alongside Saliba and Mari, adding to that Luiz, Chambers and possibly Konstantinos Mavropanos, who will surely be looking to finally breakthrough into the first-team set-up on a more regular basis, the Emirates faithful will arguably be covered enough in that position on the pitch for next term.

As a consequence, this may mean that one of if not all of the three central defenders mentioned by Ornstein may have to be sacrificed by the Emirates faithful.

Gooners, how many of the centre-back’s mentioned would you sell? Comment below!
