Getting rid of the players we have on loan at the minute has to be the first priority.
After that I wouldn't be adverse to selling anybody on that list apart from Pepe and PEA.

We have a lot of our current and future investment tied up in Pepe, so he at least needs two seasons to see if he can live up to that price tag.
As for Auba, leaving aside his possible desire to join Barca et. al, if we cant get more than 35/40m for him we should keep him until the end of his contract.
This has to be the weakest Arsenal team in terms of goalscorers in my time supporting it, and selling the only regular goalscorer for a low ball figure just because he can go for free the next summer is madness.
He will be 32 come the end of that contract, so its not like we're loosing somebody at their absolute peak on a free, he would probably have had to be replaced that summer anyway if there was a marked decline in his form etc.
With the right purchases and sales elsewhere, having him the extra year could catapult us back into the CL spots and mitigate the loss of any mediocre transfer fee we might miss out on this summer.
