ARSENAL look set for a busy summer after a frankly abysmal 2020-21.

The North Londoners sit way down in ninth in the Premier League and crashed out of the Europa League at the hands of former boss Unai Emery - losing to Villarreal in the semi-finals.
Now it seems Arteta has seen enough and is set to rip his squad apart and build it up from its bare bones.
At least SIX big-name stars are set to be put on the chopping block in the coming months.
Hector Bellerin and Bernd Leno lead the way, with Lucas Torreira, Sead Kolasinac, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Matteo Guendouzi also set to be sold at the end of their loan spells.
Arteta wants to raise at least £60m from the sales, but could be looking at closer to £100m if he plays his cards right.
And the Spanish boss is set to pour every penny straight back into his squad as he leads a brutal overhaul.
In goal, Athletic Bilbao ace Unai Simon is the No1 target to replace under-performing Leno, with Ajax star Andre Onana - despite the Cameroonian currently serving a doping ban - also on their wish-list.
Replacing Bellerin - who is desperate for a new challenge after ten years at Arsenal - will be another key piece of business for Arteta.
