Arsenal won’t be signing any new stars before Thursday’s transfer deadline, but the club are to consider offers for their fringe players.

According to sources at the club (via ESPN), the Gunners will listen to offers for Danny Welbeck, David Ospina and Mohamed Elneny before the window closes.

Ospina has been heavily tipped with a move to Besiktas after failing to assert himself as the No1 at the Emirates. Unai Emery has recruited Germany’s Bernd Leno, ultimately pushing Ospina further down the pecking order.

Meanwhile, Danny Welbeck who has a year remaining on his deal, is at risk of being sold this summer or leaving for nothing next summer, with a number of Premier League clubs monitoring the situation.

Mohamed Elneny recently signed a new deal with the club, but has slipped down the pecking order, with the arrivals of Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi meaning Arsenal have a number of options in defensive midfield.
