Arsenal are ready to listen to the offers for three first-team players this summer.

The Gunners are set to have one of their biggest transfer windows in the clubs history as Mikel Arteta aims to add some much needed quality in depth to his side. With many incomings set to happen over the next month, Arsenal will also see many players depart as they look balance their squad ahead of next season.

Arsenal are targeting some big names this summer with the likes of Declan Rice and Kai Havertz close to joining the Gunners. However there will also be some key players leaving North London too.

Arsenal are ready to listen to offers for striker Eddie Nketiah this summer. The academy product has scored 32 goals in 131 appearances for the Gunners in his time at the club. It’s worth mentioning more than half of them appearances were off the bench.

Eddie Nketiah stepped up for the Gunners last season when Gabriel Jesus was sidelined for a number of months. The 23-year-old scored four goals, including a last minute winner against Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium.

Eddie Nketiah’s current contract lasts until 2027 with the club ready to let the player leave if their valuation is met this summer. Arsenal value the England international at £40million with West Ham and Brentford both showing interest.

It’s currently unclear if Eddie Nketiah was to leave, whether that would open the door for Folarin Balogun to stay at Arsenal next season. The U.S. international has said many times that he wants to be a starting striker next season, after getting a taste for it in France.

If the player is to leave North London this summer then Arsenal will be looking for a fee of around £40million. However the club is yet to decide on Folarin Balogun’s future just yet.

It’s likely Mikel Arteta will include Folarin Balogun as part of the pre-season plans which begin at the start of July. The Arsenal boss will take a look at the striker and then a decision on the players’ future will follow.

Lastly, Arsenal are open to letting Thomas Partey leave the club this summer as long as their valuation of the player is met. The Gunners could be looking at a full midfield rebuild ahead of next season with Granit Xhaka also heading for the exit door as he closes in on a move to Bayer Leverkusen.

AS Monaco, two Italian clubs including Juventus and teams from Saudi Arabia including Al-Shabab FC are said to be interested in the 30-year-old. Arsenal want around £30m for the Ghanaian who has two years left on his current contract.
