Arsenal ready to axe three stars to boost their spending power

Arsenal have had a quiet January transfer window with the club yet to add a player to their squad. 

Financial Fair Play restrictions mean they will likely have to sell before bringing in new recruits. 

That is the situation of most clubs in England, with spending on Premier League transfers down due to FFP rules. 

Arsenal are keen to offload some of their fringe players to boost their spending power.


Jorginho has been struggling for regular minutes at Arsenal this season. 

He joined the club last January 2023 but has failed to make a huge impact. 

With Declan Rice arriving last summer, the Italian has spent much of the season on the bench.

Arsenal could look to recoup some of the £12 million fee they paid to sign Jorginho in 2023 by offloading him this winter. 

This will likely be their last chance as the midfielder’s contract is set to run out at the end of the season.

Emile Smith Rowe 

Emile Smith Rowe is another player who has been heavily linked with a January exit.

The 23-year-old has been on the fringes of the squad this season, making only one Premier League start. 

West Ham United made a loan offer for Smith Rowe earlier this month, but the player and club knocked back the approach. 

However, RB Leipzig have entered the race for the attacking midfielder despite Mikel Arteta being undecided on whether to allow him to leave (per the Sun). 

Arsenal may end up retaining the England international’s services, but nothing can be ruled out before the end of the transfer window. 

Thomas Partey 

Thomas Partey has endured a challenging season, with injuries limiting his involvement to just three Premier League starts.

He last played for Arsenal in October 2023 and has been sidelined with a hamstring issue. 

With his contract expiring in 2025, the Gunners are ready to sell him to recoup some of the £45m fee they paid Atletico Madrid in 2020. 

Barcelona are reportedly monitoring the 30-year-old, but their financial troubles mean they are unlikely to make an offer until summer.
