Arsenal will allow more players to leave the club before the transfer window shuts for the rest of Europe's major leagues on Sept. 2, manager Unai Emery said on Friday.
Arsenal made six major signings in the close season, which included defenders David Luiz and Kieran Tierney on deadline day and record signing Nicolas Pepe who reportedly cost the London club 72 million pounds ($87 million).
But a number of regulars including captain Laurent Koscielny, Aaron Ramsey and Alex Iwobi left and Emery is prepared to lose more in the coming weeks, saying he will only pick a new captain after the squad is finalised.
"We are changing players at the last moment. We had Koscielny, the old captain, and he left with five days to go," Emery told reporters ahead of Sunday's match at Newcastle.
"At the moment the market is open in other countries. In the next 20-25 days some players will leave.
