Mikel Arteta Demands Arsenal Overhaul With 10 Players Put On Transfer List
By Mike Parrott
Mikel Arteta has supposedly put 10 Arsenal players on the transfer list as he readies his massive overhaul this summer.
Arsenal are looking to improve upon Mikel Arteta's first season as the manager of Arsenal as he prepares to start his first full season in charge of the club, having been appointed as Unai Emery's successor last December.
And The Gunners are reportedly willing to allow up to 10 players to leave the club this summer as Mikel Arteta puts his stamp on the squad.
It is being reported that the Spanish manager is looking to bring in targets such as Gabriel Magalhaes from Lille, Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid and Houssem Aouar from Lyon.
In fact, a medical is supposedly set to take place for Gabriel but Arsenal also need to bring in funds to finance other deals.
The North-London side have already brought in Willian on a free transfer from Chelsea.
:new: New club. New colours. New beginnings.

Former Arsenal star Charlie Nicholas, spoke of the need to shift out some deadwood at the club.
"I don't think it's overly difficult for me to say who should go," he told Sky Sports News. "Gabriel must come in - would he be a good signing? Yes."
"But [Shkodran] Mustafi will be sold. He's injured just now but he will be sold, he has to go. Sokratis I think will say: 'At my stage, I have to go'."
"Rob Holding, nothing against him, I don't think Arsenal's helped him. It was the wrong move at the wrong time for the lad. I think if the right offer comes in, he'll go."

"And obviously Calum Chambers, who has been in and out of the club unbelievable amounts of times, will have to go for his own sake, rather than his long-term future at Arsenal - it doesn't exist."
"So they'll be four out, you get the money in, you replace it."
