Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta offers transfer update over potential outgoings

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta says he is not expecting any of his players to leave in the near future.

The likes of Sead Kolasinac, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi have all been linked with exits from the Emirates this summer.

Emiliano Martinez departed this week with the goalkeeper joining Aston Villa while Konstantinos Mavropanos headed to Stuttgart on loan.

The incomings has been busier with Gabriel and Willian arriving while Pablo Mari and Cedric Soares made their loan moves permanent.

And Arteta is not expecting any more space to be made in his squad just yet, saying: “I think every case you take it individually.

“First of all try to understand if they want to leave, why.

“At the moment I’m not expecting anyone to leave shortly.”

Though Arteta has hinted that he may have to sell players if he wants to improve his squad with more additions.

He added: "We are trying all the time to adjust the squad in the most efficient way.
