Arsene Wenger is ready to bolster Arsenal's transfer budget by cashing in on Yaya Sanogo and Joel Campbell in the summer transfer window, reports The Sun.

The Gunners will struggle to generate over £10million for the failed forwards, but Wenger is open to the idea of letting the pair leave north London if the right offers come along.

Sanogo was sent on loan to Crystal Palace in the January transfer window but has failed to impress for Alan Pardew.

The Frenchman has started just three Premier League games for the Eagles and has only scored a single goal in an FA Cup tie against Southampton.

Campbell, similarly, was sent to Villarreal on loan as part of the deal that sent Gabriel in the opposite direction.

Failing to impress

The Costa Rica international has played a lot more than Sanogo, starting 12 La Liga games, but has failed to score or assist a single goal in those games.

That may not be all the 22-year-old's fault as Villarreal have failed to win any of their last ten games. 

It is not known whether Palace or Villarreal would be interested in making their loan deals permanent but they will almost certainly have been given the option to do so when the original agreement was made.

A mistake

Campbell came to life at Olympiakos last season and impressed at the World Cup. With Benfica interested, Arsenal would have been able to sell him for £15m but Wenger chose to bring him to London Colney.

However, he was never given the chance to impress and, as a result, Arsenal are set to lose out by selling him for significantly less.

That's a mistake.
