Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have met reports in the Sun suggesting they could overhaul up to NINE first-team stars with joyful applause.

Following yet another tragic title tilt, the Gunners are reportedly set for a major summer clear out in an effort to finally win a fourth Premier League title under the stewardship of Arsene Wenger.

The report claims while up to £80m could be spent on player recruitment, much of the focus will be on clearing out the deadwood in North London.

England international Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are no strangers to the proverbial transfer rumour mill, having been linked with moves to West Ham and Southampton respectively.

Fellow Three Lion Kieran Gibbs is also believed to have become discontent with life behind Nacho Monreal in the pecking order.

Leicester City starlet Ben Chilwell is understood to be a target in order to find cover and competition for the Spaniard.

World Cup winning defender Per Mertesacker is another top name mentioned, while midfield trio Mathieu Flamini, Tomas Rosicky and Mikel Arteta are expected to leave at the end of the season.

The latter is believed to be a target of old friend Pep Guardiola, who wishes to add him to his coaching staff at Manchester City.

Mathieu Debuchy could be another to leave permanently after his loan spell with Bordeaux, while one of David Ospina or Wojciech Szczesny may be afforded a transfer away in an effort to land first-team football.

Does even one player mentioned in the report have a realistic future with Arsenal? Is a huge clear out exactly what they need?
