3. Gabriel Magalhaes

Just to make it clear - Arsenal should not sell Gabriel OR William Saliba. Since the latter is obvious, I thought it'd be best to address the former.

This season, Gabriel has been Arsenal's best performing centre-back, which is why it's crazy to think he could have been sold in the summer transfer window. Gabriel was shown interest from the Saudi Pro League back in September, but Mikel Arteta blocked the transfer from happening, stating that he is worth upwards of £200m.

There's a reason why Gabriel is worth so much to Arsenal and it is because he was with the club throughout their bad years. Now in a title-competing team, Gabriel is able to not only learn from those lessons from the Gunners' poor era, but he is able to teach the upcoming younger players a thing or two. This is why I believe he is untouchable to Arsenal, and the Gunners will avoid selling him at all costs.
