Arsenal could offload as many as four defenders following the arrival of Gabriel Magalhaes from Lille this summer.
The Gunners have been tipped to sign the Brazilian centre-back over the past few weeks and they are currently on the cusp of sealing the deal.
With his arrival, the club will be overloaded with options in the central defence and it appears that as many as four players could head for the exit door.
Both Sokratis and Mustafi have entered the final year of their respective contracts and the Gunners are bound to sell them as they have no plans of renewing their contracts.
Konstantinos Mavropanos is the other centre-back in the club’s ranks, but he has already been loaned out to Stuttgart for the entire 2020/21 campaign.
