Four Arsenal players to join EPL rivals, Newcastle Utd
They will finally get the chance to flex their financial muscles in the coming weeks following their takeover at the start of the season.
Some of those new faces could come from Arsenal.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the most-high profile of those having been cast aside after a disciplinary breach. Manager Mikel Arteta has chosen not to select his forward, who is the club’s highest paid player.
Aubameyang is one of several forwards who could leave, with Eddie Nketiah another.
Nketiah has rejected the offer of a new contract and will be a free agent in the summer.
As a result Arsenal could look to cut their losses with Newcastle also keen on the Englishman.
In the middle of the park the Tyneside club could also look to take advantage of the lack of playing time being given to Mohamed Elneny.
He, like Aubameyang, will jet off to Africa this month which could complicate his signing, but he remains on their radar.
Rob Holding is the fourth Gunners star to be linked with a move to St James’ Park.
He is currently behind Ben White and Gabriel in the pecking order which may factor into any decision he makes on his future.
