Transfer news: Salah, Mbappe, Buendia latest
After Arsenal’s poor start to the season, Mikel Arteta has managed to turn their form around in recent weeks, much to the relief of supporters. The Gunners had a busy summer transfer window, with several additions being made to the squad – and now their values have been revealed.
Arteta brought in Thomas Partey, Gabriel Magalhaes, Pablo Mari, Runar Alex Runarsson, Cedric Soares and Willian to try and help the north London club get closer to the top four.
However, injury problems have disrupted Arsenal’s new signings and their starts at the club, with marquee arrivals Partey and Gabriel, in particular, struggling for fitness.
With the January window now open, there are set to be multiple players leaving the Emirates Stadium this month due to lack of minutes under Arteta.
So with the season halfway through and the January window open, we have used Transfermarkt to find out the latest market values of each of Arsenal’s squad to see how they have changed since the summer.
Thomas Partey – £45m (+£9m)
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – £36m (-£9m)
Nicolas Pepe – £36m (-£4.5m)
Bukayo Saka – £36m (+£4.5m)
Nicolas Pepe joined Arsenal from Lille for £72m in August 2019
Alexandre Lacazette – £31.5m (-£6.3m)
Bernd Leno – £28.8m (no change)
Dani Ceballos – £28.8m (no change)

Former Atletico Madrid midfielder Partey has seen his stock rise by £9m following his big-money move to north London last year.
The Ghana international is now valued at £45m despite injuries playing a big part in his start at his new club.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, though, has had his price slashed by £9m after a slow start to the season with the Gunners, which saw him score just one goal from open play in the Premier League between the end of August and mid-December.
However, another reason for the drop in the Gabon striker’s value could be to do with his age, with the Arsenal captain turning 32 in June.
Bukayo Saka, unsurprisingly, has had his value increased, following his fine form for Arteta’s side this season.
The youngster has played such a big part in everything Arsenal have done well offensively during the early stages of the campaign.
Nicolas Pepe, the man who has had to pave way for Saka this season, has seen his price cut by £4.5m, as he is linked with a move away from north London.
Thomas Partey has seen his debut Arsenal season interrupted by injury
Despite being absent for a large chunk of his time at the Emirates, Gabriel’s value has increased by £7.2m, after showing his talent in his first few games for his new club.
However, Kieran Tierney – who has been brilliant this term, has seen his value go down by £3.6m, along with opposite fullback Hector Bellerin.
Gabriel Martinelli has been missing for the majority of the campaign through injury, returning to action last month, but his price has stayed the same.
Mesut Ozil is valued at just £4.5m, with the former Germany international completely exiled from Arteta’s plans this season.
Ozil is expected to leave either this month or in the summer when his contract expires, which is another reason for his low price.
Sokratis is in a similar situation, with the Greek centre-back now valued at £3.6m, which marks a decrease of £1.8m.
