Arsenal's decision to sell Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri helped them report a huge pre-tax profit of £49.5million for the six months to the end of November.
The Gunners, who lost £6.1million over the same period in 2010, might have made only a small profit but for the controversial departures of Fabregas and Nasri last summer for a reported £54million.
Arsenal enjoyed an overall profit on player trading of £46.1million, having made a loss of £5.9million the previous year.
