Arsenal clears up: After the Gunners have lost touch with the top group of the Premier League in recent years, the club from London is planning in summer 2020 a restart. Numerous former Bundesliga legionnaires could fall victim to this restart.
However the 2019/20 season ends in England, Arsenal will once again be one of the big losers. The once so successful club from the north of London is once again chasing the Champions League spots and will only be able to enjoy the premier class as a silent observer in the 2020/21 season.
Coach Mikel Arteta and his team are planning a radical change so that the Gunners can play in the concert of the big ones again in the foreseeable future. According to a report by the portal "football.london", numerous former Bundesliga professionals could fall victim to this change. Former BVB professionals on the shooting list Arsenal wants from ex-BVB professional Sokratis, among others. The Greek defender will be 32 in summer and is not a man for the future. If an offer for Sokratis is received, Londoners would probably not reject it, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who also worked for BVB from 2013 to 2016, will probably no longer wear the Arsenal jersey. The Armenian is currently on loan to AS Roma. The Italians wanted to commit the midfielder already in the winter, but at that time Arsenal declined an offer worth ten million euros. With another offer, however, the Londoners could give the green light for the transfer.Ex-Schalke Kolasinac too expensive? The former Schalke Sead Kolasinac could also face a farewell. The injury problems and the high salary of the 26-year-old would make a sale "not surprising", writes "football.london". The separation from Shkodran Mustafi is almost to be expected. The German defender was on the verge of a change last summer, but ultimately there was no customer. Interest continues to come from Italy and Turkey, with the money Arsenal earns from the sales, according to the report, among other things, to sign a successor to Mesut Özil, whose contract expires in the summer of 2021 and will most likely not be extended.
