Selling players

Over the past two or three seasons I know myself and a number of others have become pretty indifferent to the characters in our squad. Giroud, Ramsey and Welbeck were probably the last three I "liked" but have all left. Now I have a real "meh" feeling towards our players. Aside from talent and ability there's a lack of characters and personalities.

Aubameyang is getting on and is on big wages but he's a natural finisher and guarantees goals, and you could probably build more long term around the likes of Leno, Bellerin, Torreira, Guendouzi, Lacazette, etc, but even then they're (mostly) replaceable. The rest range from the "alright" and "okay" to the offensively rubbish.

There were rumours earlier this summer of an £80 million bid for Aubameyang and a big money move for Lacazette. Similarly Bellerin and Torreira have recently been linked with moves to Atletico and AC Milan respectively. I don't expect these big money bids to come in, but given our limited finances if they did personally I think we'd have to seriously consider our position.

Are there any players left at the club who you'd be particularly bothered about us selling?
