David Bentley has urged Arsenal to offload half of their team, including David Luiz and Mesut Ozil, in order to rebuild the squad. The Gunners endured a dismal start after the three-month break with consecutive losses to Manchester City and Brighton.

The north London club are facing a restricted summer of spending due to the financial impact of the coronavirus crisis and may need to sell players to raise funds for new signings.



Former Arsenal and Tottenham winger Bentley believes Ozil and Luiz are one of a number of squad members that need to be shipped out.



'Mesut Ozil and David Luiz are on large money and if Arsenal can move these players on then Arteta will be able to spend money on transfers,' Bentley told 888Sport.

'I don't know what the thinking is at boardroom level because Arsenal need to ship out half the team and get a good core in.

Last week, Arsenal confirmed David Luiz had been handed a new one-year deal to keep the defender at the Emirates until next summer, and Bentley admitted he was perplexed over the decision.
