Arsenal has signed Nicola Pepe in one of the biggest deal in the football transfers and are now having a shortage of cap space. The African footballer was signed from the French club Lille for a massive £72 million, five-year deal. While the Arsenal fare excited with their new player, they are also eyeing to get Coutinho and Umtiti from Barcelona FC.
In order to do, Arsenal football club needs to trade some of its players out. The most rumored names to be transferred from Arsenal are Laurent Koscielny, Carl Jenkinson, and Shkodran Mustafi.
Laurent Koscielny wanted to move out from the Arsenal team for a long time and is finally getting his wish fulfilled. He has straight-up refused to join the team on the US tour and has made up his mind for a transfer. Koscienly has agreed on contract terms with the Bordeaux club and will fly out of Arsenal soon. Even Arsenal have agreed for a £4.6 million fee, and the club captain will leave the Gunners side soon.
In addition Laurent Koscielny is close to sign for Bordeaux for a fee of £5m, medical today, while Carl Jenkinson is wanted by Nottingham Forest on a permanent move. #AFC want £5m minimum to sell the player

Carl Jenkinson is available for a price of £5 million and Arsenal are in talks with the club of Nottingham Forest. Even though it is not clear whether it will be a loan exchange or permanent deal, but the Gunners are in touch with the Forest officials. Crystal Palace has also tried to sign the 27-year-old right back, but Arsenal were not happy with sending Jenkinson for a long term deal.
If Carl Jenkinson does go then please don't give him stick , that boy did something we all would have loved to have done literally lived his dream.

Shkodran Mustafi has removed Arsenal from his profile picture and ‘Player for Arsenal’ from his Instagram bio hinting his transfer. Roma FC is interested in the 27-year-old center back despite his recent performance in Arsenal vs. Barcelona match. The Gunners can sell Mustafi to Roma for a £3 million, three-year deal. It has become tough for Mustafi to stay in Arsenal as the fans kind of hates him now.
Arsenal in talks with number of clubs over Shkodran Mustafi exit. 27yo (contract until 2021) wants to stay + prove himself. But #AFC want permanent or loan departure. Also hope to bolster central defence pre-deadline & retain interest in Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney #CelticFC
