Mikel Arteta ready to sell three Arsenal centre-halves this summer, including Rob Holding

first_imgMikel Arteta is looking to dramatically shake up his defensive options in the summer transfer window (Picture: Getty)Mikel Arteta is willing to listen to offers for three of his current central defenders this summer, including Rob Holding. The 24-year-old had been one of only a handful of players to have significantly improved under the management of Unai Emery before a cruciate knee ligament injury ended his 2019/20 season prematurely.Holding made his return to first team action in September but has made only eight subsequent appearances and has made just a solitary start since Mikel Arteta was appointed as Emery’s successor back in December.David Ornstein, speaking on the Athletic’s Ornstein and Chapman podcast, revealed Arsenal will consider bids for Holding who cost just 2.5million when Arsene Wenger recruited him from Bolton in the summer of 2016.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTSokratis Papastathopoulos, whose current contract expires next year, may also be deemed surplus to requirements while, despite having improved dramatically under Arteta, Arsenal could entertain offers for Shkodran Mustafi.

He knows exactly where he wants the players to be when on the ball and how to react when losing the ball. It’s very special.‘When I pass I am usually only focused on where to be if we lose the ball but he wants me to contribute offensively too. So we constantly need to make an option for the player on the ball.’More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

Pablo Mari arrived on loan in January from Flamengo but the Gunners are almost certain to sign the Spainiard permanently, especially given Calum Chambers is likely to remain on the sidelines until September following a serious knee injury. Arteta is also reported to be on the lookout for a new left-back that would allow Bukayo Saka to flourish in his favourite position on the wing with Ajax’s Nicolas Tagliafico said to be a £20million target.
