Will Arsenal Sell 8 Players In The Summer?

Arsenal are threatening to axe any of their players entering the final two years of their contract moving forward. nd that could see a host of their best players SOLD in a dramatic new strategy to avoid stars running down their deals. The Gunners have suffered in recent years with the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere walking away on free transfers. At their age with their ability, Arsenal have missed out on huge fees by not tying them down to contract extensions or selling before the final year of their deals. Negotiations were drawn out with both and Arsenal ultimately had to offload Sanchez in January 2018, letting him leave for Manchester United in a swap deal for Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Ozil eventually agreed a new deal but Arsenal smashed their wage structure in the process by handing him a £350,000-a-week contract. The 30-year-old playmaker has since been far from a regular in the side under Unai Emery this season. With the Premier League transfer window now open, Arsenal are assessing current situations with their first-team squad. Danny Welbeck looks on course to follow Juventus-bound Ramsey out the door on a free following his latest injury-hit campaign. But crucially, the club’s three top earners in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ozil and Mkhitaryan are all under contract for two more years.

Others with the same or shorter deals at the Emirates are captain Laurent Koscielny along with fellow defenders Shkodran Mustafi, Nacho Montreal, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Stephan Lichtsteiner. Arsenal’s ageing defence needs an overhaul is expected to be addressed by Emery during the window. The current wage bill is now close to £240m, so the club will tell those players to either sign up or move on. Arsenal hope to overhaul their squad to give Emery the best chance of improving on their fifth-place finish. But victory in next Wednesday’s Europa League final against Chelsea is pivotal, as they will have a transfer budget of just £45m if they lose in Baku, Azerbaijan and subsequently miss out on Champions League qualification.

New Favourite Ice Cream Flavour

This Saturday I was alone at home for the evening – from 5pm onwards – and post a coffee I knew that I would be ordering some food for dinner. Plus I had bought a few beers as well. I had a pizza and two beers and like usual after I have had a meaty pizza and beers, I feel like having something sweet like a chocolate or an ice cream.

I checked up Swiggy, an app for delivering food to your door step, and saw that they even had a discount for Baskin Robbins. Now, I can count on my fingers how many times that I have indulged in this brand of ice cream. I remember the first time I ever had BR, it was in Bangalore and me & a friend had a taste of a few flavours before settling on a small scoop of what we each liked the best. Since then I have probably had some BR ice cream 4 or 5 more times and ordered a family pack a few weeks ago.

So this night I ordered a small pack of a flavour called the Three Cheers Chocolate ice cream. They describe it as a heavenly combination of chocolate and vanilla married together with chocolate chips and ribbon (contains milk & soy). And Oh….My……Sweet Satan! This was amazing and on a hot evening after pizza and a couple of cold beers, this was perfection. Amazing taste and texture. I have a new favourite flavour!
