Arsenal ‘must sell’ before bringing in new additions this month as the Gunners look to finance a move for Amadou Onana.
Mikel Arteta invested more than £200m into the squad during the summer transfer window and FFP regulations mean Arsenal have limited funds available this month.
Arsenal are keen to bring in new additions to strengthen their title charge, and like Everton midfielder Onana according to iNews, but must raise funds before a deal can be done.
Everton value the Belgium international at around £60m, with the Toffees’ uncertain financial situation having raised the prospect of Onana’s sale.
The club’s proposed takeover by 777 Partners is yet to be finalised by the Premier League more than three months after an agreement was reached between the US group and current owner Farhad Moshiti. 777 have already loaned the club significant investment to help ease financial concerns.
Everton will owe Onana’s former club, Lille, 20% of any future fee for the midfielder and will be keen to bring in the highest possible fee for the in-demand star.
Manchester United, Chelsea, and Newcastle have also been credited with interest in the 22-year-old, who has excelled in a box-to-box role in Sean Dyche’s side.
Aaron Ramsdale and Eddie Nketiah are high-value options who could be sold this month, while Napoli have reportedly expressed interest in Jakub Kiwior.
