Arsenal should sell Bellerin for the right price’ – Gunners should part with Spaniard, Mustafi and Sokratis, says Nicholas

The former forward believes Mikel Arteta should be freshening up his defensive options this summer, with plenty of talent to sell

Arsenal should be looking to offload Hector Bellerin “if the right money came”, says Charlie Nicholas, with the former Gunners star also urging Mikel Arteta to sell Shkodran Mustafi, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Rob Holding and Calum Chambers.

There is expected to be a freshening up of the Emirates Stadium ranks this summer. Arteta inherited a squad from fellow Spaniard Unai Emery in December 2019 that needs a lot of work doing to it – particularly at the back.

He was able to fix things up enough to deliver FA Cup glory in 2020, but movement in and out of north London will be required in the current transfer window for former glories to be recaptured. Nicholas admits as much and believes funds can be freed up by moving several underperforming defenders on.
