Arsenal lists seven players for sale ahead of summer transfer window

Reports indicate that Arsenal is open to receiving bids for seven players this summer.
Mikel Arteta is expected to receive substantial financial support from Arsenal's management this summer as the team aims to solidify its status among the top contenders in the Premier League.
Despite rumors of a potential departure from Arsenal at the season's end, Gabriel Jesus is reportedly not on the sales list.
Arteta has refuted claims about selling the Brazilian forward, who joined Arsenal for £45 million from Manchester City in July 2022.
The Sunday Mirror notes that while Jesus is not targeted for sale, Arsenal is willing to consider offers for players including Aaron Ramsdale, Eddie Nketiah, Emile Smith Rowe, Reiss Nelson, Kieran Tierney, Nuno Tavares, and Albert Sambi Lokonga.
The report also states that Arsenal will 'assess the future' of Thomas Partey, who will enter the final year of his contract this summer.
Aston Villa previously showed interest in Emile Smith Rowe, with Arsenal rejecting a £30m offer for the midfielder in 2021.
The 23-year-old has two more years left on his contract but has been limited to only three starting appearances in the Premier League this season.
Following Arteta's acquisition of David Raya from Brentford last summer, Ramsdale has found playing time hard to come by.
Arsenal plans to finalize Raya's loan deal with a permanent £27m transfer at season's end, and Ramsdale has expressed his need for regular playing time.
Earlier this week, Tierney indicated that he anticipates departing from Arsenal this summer after his loan stint with Real Sociedad this season.
‘There is every chance,’ Tierney told The Athletic. ‘Look at the squad depth in that position now.
‘They have [Oleksandr] Zinchenko, [Jurrien] Timber, [Takehiro] Tomiyasu, [Jakub] Kiwior. Four players can play there. So if I go back and it’s the same as before then I’m not silly, I know the chances are I’ll be leaving.
‘But you never know in football. You get the rare case with [William] Saliba, where he came back after a couple of good seasons [out on loan] but you don’t see it too often with someone who has played for four years, left, and then come back to play again.’
