Gabriel Martinelli - Keep. Had a disappointing 2023/24 season by his own high standards but he will bounce back to stardom next season.

Leandro Trossard - Keep. One of the most reliable players in the squad, especially as a super-sub. While he will hope for minutes next season, it goes without saying that Arsenal must keep Trossard.

Bukayo Saka - Keep. The fact that Arteta would rather play a Saka at 25% fitness than a replacement at 100% fitness shows that Arteta sees Saka as a long-term Arsenal star.

Gabriel Jesus - Keep. He will hope to go a whole season injury-free but Jesus should be kept, he is proven quality.

Reiss Nelson - Sell. Some valuable funds could be raised by selling Reiss Nelson, as great a Hale End graduate as he's been. After signing his contract extension, Nelson has provided next to nothing.

Eddie Nketiah - Sell. If Arsenal sign a new striker this summer, which seems likely, then Nketiah will be the one to miss out. Therefore, he should be sold for the sake of all parties.
