Arsenal are the closest they have been in years to having a perfect squad but still need to get rid of some players that are no longer of use to Mikel Arteta.

The Gunners will look to sell some players in the summer in order to fund moves for priority targets but with most of the squad looking like they have some importance to Mikel Arteta, who will head for the exit door?

With that in mind, here are four players that Arsenal MUST sell this summer.

1. Aaron Ramsdale

After a brilliant debut season at Arsenal, many labelled Aaron Ramsdale as the 'next David Seaman' and his career looked to be heading that way after he signed a new long-term contract in May 2023. This would have acted as a sign to fans that he would be at the club for years to come, but the loan signing of David Raya has changed that.

Ramsdale was dropped for Arsenal's visit to Everton in September and Raya has been Mikel Arteta's first choice since. Due to Raya being ineligible to face his parent club, Ramsdale stepped back into the side for both matches against Brentford this season. However, his performances in each game would have done nothing but seal his fate.

His clear lack of confidence shows that if he is to continue acting as a benchwarmer for Arsenal, his career will be ruined. Ramsdale is still relatively young for a goalkeeper so should actively seek out a move this summer. The Gunners should also be eager to sell as his new £120,000 a week wages are a hefty amount for a second-choice 'keeper. Many clubs, including Chelsea and Newcastle United, have shown interest in Ramsdale over the past few months so Arsenal should have no problem finding a suitor.
