Arsenal are reportedly prepared to part ways with five first-team players as they seek to boost their budget for the forthcoming summer transfer window.
The north London side have virtually ended their top-four prospects after the draw against Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend and they are now dependent on winning the Europa League to secure Champions League football next term.
According to The Sun, the club are already setting up their plans for the summer and as many as five players could be heading through the Emirates exit door.
Aaron Ramsey, Petr Cech and Danny Welbeck have already been announced to be leaving the club this summer but reports indicate that Mesut Ozil, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Carl Jenkinson, Shkodran Mustafi and Mohamed Elneny could follow suit.
Both Ozil and Mkhitaryan have produced a few standout displays through the season but overall, they have lacked the consistency in the final third which has generated doubts regarding their positions.
Elsewhere, Elneny and Jenkinson are set to part ways after falling out-of-favour under Unai Emery while Mustafi has been prone to making defensive mistakes, which have cost the team dearly this term.
Arsenal are scheduled to face Valencia in the second leg of their Europa League semi-final on the road. They go into the game with a 3-1 advantage from the opening leg at the Emirates Stadium.
