Transfer expert David Ornstein has indicated that Arsenal will undergo a major squad overhaul regardless of what happens at the end of the season. The Athletic journalist has identified six first-team players who could be leaving the club with different reasons.

Last season, Arsenal led the Premier League for a substantial period before ultimately succumbing to a surging Manchester City, who clinched the treble. This year, Mikel Arteta’s team finds themselves in another intense title race, competing against Manchester City and Liverpool. 

The Gunners’ potential success in the Champions League could add a celebratory note to the season, but Ornstein says elite teams must consistently refresh their squads to stay at the top.

Answering questions in a Q&A on The Athletic, Ornstein points out that Aaron Ramsdale, Kieran Tierney, Nuno Tavares, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Emile Smith Rowe, and Eddie Nketiah are all potential departures from Arsenal this summer.

“You could envisage Aaron Ramsdale, Kieran Tierney, Nuno Tavares, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Emile Smith Rowe and Eddie Nketiah all being looked at by suitors,” Ornstein wrote.

Ramsdale, having lost his starting position in goal to David Raya, appears likely to seek a move away. Meanwhile, the potential arrival of a new striker might push Nketiah towards the exit.


While Arsenal have been linked with several big names for potential arrivals, Ornstein reveals that the club’s priority is signing a striker. RB Leipzig’s Benjamin Sesko, Sporting CP’s Viktor Gyokeres, and Brighton’s Evan Ferguson are reportedly on Arsenal’s radar. 

Additionally, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is interested in Portuguese winger Pedro Neto to bolster competition and depth in wide attacking areas, although negotiations with Wolves might prove challenging due to their £80 million asking price.

In addition to offensive reinforcements, Arsenal are expected to focus on strengthening their midfield with long-term interest in Real Sociedad midfielder Martin Zubimendi.
