AMN's value for us lies in us getting a decent fee. That can be reinvested in the playing squad. Willock might have an outside chance of making it here, but Nketiah is living on borrowed time too.
This is normal for a club of Arsenal's size. Few of our youngsters will make it here, but many will go on to have successful careers in football in other clubs.
I don't necessarily disagree. But I'd encourage you to look at the bigger picture and current circumstances.
The perceived value of players below 25 fluctuates immensely, much like their form and confidence - for example if we sold Guendouzi when he was playing regularly and just got called up to the France national team, nobody would've balked at paying £40m. Now it's a different story. Torreira the same.
Conversely we sold Ox and Iwobi for a combined total of £80m because they were seen as key members of our squad, rather than players who truly justify that fee. On the point of re-investing fees - this summer's transfer market will be unlike most. We took out a loan of £120m from the bank of England in January to cover lost revenues - that needs to be repaid. We still owe a significant chunk in structured fees for the likes of Pepe, and it's quite possible we'll fail to qualify for Europe. There is no guarantee of reinvestment whatsoever.
If the argument here is fiscal, there's still more than enough room to question players with high intrinsic value being frozen out of first team affairs. Arteta's looking for shortcuts to success but it's a sizeable own goal if we get the balance wrong.
