The three players have been linked with moves away and now it appears that Arsenal are ready to do deals for them all.
According to White, Szczesny will move to Juventus for a seemingly low fee of £12m – the same fee as Gibbs to West Brom.
Chambers will move to Crystal Palace in a £20m deal.
It would be a shame to see all three move. Gibbs has been at the club since he was a boy and the other two players still seemingly have a lot to offer the club.
The club have spent big on Alexandre Lacazette who came in on a club record fee. However, that is the only money spent this summer.
Hopefully these sales mean that more signings are on their way in. The club have been linked with a move for Thomas Lemar in particular but the extra cash could allow a huge bid for his team mate Kylian Mbappe to be made.
There are still plenty of other fringe players such as Mathieu Debuchy and Carl Jenkinson that seem almost certain to leave the club.
This is in addition to the possible departures of Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who all have just a year to run on their deals.
