Arsenal boss Unai Emery has told defender Shkodran Mustafi and midfielder Mohamed Elneny that they must leave the club and find a new challenge, according to Metro.
Both players have fallen down the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium and are surplus to requirements.
Neither player has been selected by Emery this season and are not expected to be when Arsenal travel to Liverpool tomorrow.
The Guardian claims that Monaco are keen on Mustafi, whilst Elneny has potential suitors in Turkey.
Emery believes that both must sort out their futures before the window closes next month.
He told Metro: “We have some players who know their situation. For example, Elneny and Mustafi know their position in the squad.
“I want players to be happy here and last year with Mustafi and Mo, when they didn’t play they weren’t happy.
“We respect them, and they are training with us, but they know their situation. The best for them is to get another challenge with another team.”
TBR Verdict – Best interest for all parties for the duo to depart
The sagas involving Mustafi and Elneny have dragged on far too long and the best outcome for everyone now is for them to fix themselves up with new clubs.
After a summer spent adding big-money signings to his squad, Emery could do with offloading the pair to bolster the club’s wage budget.
Elneny earns £50,000-a-week, whilst German defender Mustafi collects £90,000-a-week, according to Spotrac.
Arsenal have made a perfect start to their Premier League campaign and with spirits high following a fruitful summer, they don’t need anyone upsetting the applecart in terms of morale.
