Arsenal are set to let a raft of first-teamers leave the Emirates Stadium, as they plan for life in the Champions League. 

The Gunners are fighting for the title, finding themselves eight points clear of rivals Manchester City in second with 10 matches remaining. With this improved season, Arsenal will likely qualify for the Champions League next term and though Arteta has a core of regulars he’s leant on all season, others’ future at the club is less certain.

With the Gunners set to spend big on Declan Rice, too, there may be high-profile exits from the club.

The Sun (opens in new tab) are claiming that a whole host of players will be jettisoned, with the most notable being club-record signing Nicolas Pepe. The Ivorian has been on loan at Nice this season, though his £140,000-a-week wages may be a sticking point in finding a new employer.
