Arsenal have yet to really get going in the summer transfer window. David Raya finally signed a permanent deal with the Gunners on Thursday, but that is the only piece of incoming business they have done, bar adding to their youth team.

A number of players are expected to leave in the coming days and weeks, while Mikel Arteta and Edu are also looking to strengthen their squad ahead of another Premier League title challenge in the upcoming season.

In order to make big-money signings, the club will need to ensure they continue to comply with Financial Fair Play and Profit and Sustainability Rules. And that will see the north Londoners looking to get the best deals possible for any sales.

With that in mind, football.london takes a look at the true value of the Gunners' squad in this summer transfer window.

David Raya

One of the easier ones to value in this list. He's just signed for £27million from Brentford, plus the £3million loan fee from last season. His value will rise, with good performances, but for now, that's what he's worth.

Value: £30million

Aaron Ramsdale

Signed for an initial £24million from Sheffield United, Ramsdale has had good times and bad times at Arsenal and you can probably say he is worth about the same as he was then.

Value: £24million

Karl Hein

Difficult to quantify given his lack of minutes in the first team. Arsenal will probably look to get seven figures for him if they were to sell.

Value: £1million

Benjamin White

Signed from Brighton & Hove Albion three summers ago for a fee of £50million. Transfermarkt value him just under that, but with three years on his contract and aged 26, he has significantly improved.

Value: £70million

William Saliba

One of the players in the squad who has seen his value sky-rocket the most. Saliba has been outstanding for Arsenal and is showing it on the big stage for France too. Worth his weight in gold.

Value: £100million

Gabriel Magalhaes

Another player who shone last season for the Gunners. He may be three years Saliba's senior, but his importance to the team should not go unnoticed.

Value: £70million

Oleksandr Zinchenko

Arsenal signed Zinchenko from Manchester City in 2022 for around £30million. He's not had the best time in north London, but still has plenty of pedigree.

Value: £25million

Jurrien Timber

Signed for Arsenal for £34million last summer and has barely played due to injury. You cannot say his value has diminished because of that.

Value: £34million

Jakub Kiwior

Could be on the move this summer. Has only been with the club for a year-and-a-half having signed for £21million from Spezia, but probably warrants a slight increase.

Value: £25million

Takehiro Tomiyasu

Has not been able to tie down a regular starting spot at Emirates Stadium, but is always solid when called upon. Signed for an initial £16million and probably worth around that or slightly more now.

Value: £20million

Kieran Tierney

Not in favour in north London now having been out on loan with Real Sociedad last season. Looks likely to move on this summer.

Value: £10million

Nuno Tavares

Does not have a future at Arsenal moving forward but will not fetch much of a transfer fee after a disappointing spell in England and with only a year left on his contract.

Value: £5million

Thomas Partey

Heralded as a major coup for Arsenal from Atletico Madrid, Partey's Arsenal carer has stuttered somewhat due to injuries. Remains an important player but his age and contract length count against him.

Value: £20million

Declan Rice

What a signing. A bargain at £105million really and if anything that value has only increased after the first season at Arsenal.

Value: £120million

Jorginho

Signed a one-year contract extension and will be sticking around for the upcoming season. What happens after that is anyone's guess.

Value: £10million

Albert Sambi Lokonga

Another who looks like to move on this summer, but probably not for a fee that is going to change any Arsenal transfer plans.

Value: £10million

Martin Odegaard

The Arsenal skipper is not going anywhere, but if he were it would be for a big price. Integral to Mikel Arteta's team and his value reflects that.

Value: £100million

Emile Smith Rowe

The Hale End graduate will be pure profit if Arsenal sell his this summer. Clearly hugely talented, but does not appear to be in Arteta's plans and has had his injury troubles.

Value: £35million

Fabio Vieira

Signed for a whopping £34million from Porto, his move to north London has not been a success. It may only have been two years, but his transfer value has surely decreased since then.

Value: £20million

Kai Havertz

Was a surprise £65million signing from London rivals Chelsea last year and after a slow start proved his worth to Arteta in a variety of different positions.

Value: £65million

Reiss Nelson

Has had his moments in an Arsenal shirt and is another who will bring in pure profit if he is sold. Unlikely to force his way into the first team plans under Arteta, but is worth a fair amount.

Value: £20million

Bukayo Saka

Starboy is another who is not going anywhere but if there were any offer to come in for him, they would have to be huge. Still just 22 years old and with the world at his feet.

Value: £150million

Gabriel Martinelli

Looks a world beater on his day, but tailed off a little last season. A Brazil regular and at 23 has so much more to learn.

Value: £75million

Leandro Trossard

Has proved hugely important to Arsenal since arriving from Brighton & Hove Albion. Scores important goals and always seems to make an impact. He is 29, however.

Value: £30million

Eddie Nketiah

Another who will be pure profit for Arsenal and another likely to be on the move this summer, if the Gunners can find a buyer. They may want £50million, but not sure he's quite worth that much.

Value: £40million

Gabriel Jesus

Joined for £45million from Manchester City and has had his moments. Is he the No.9 Arsenal need? He has a part to play, but not sure he's the guaranteed starter anymore.

Value: £40million

Marquinhos

Talented Brazilian youngster joined the club for just £3million in 2023. He is on loan with Fluminese until January 2025, but at his age is surely worth more than Arsenal paid for him.

Value: £5million
