Former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan believes Arsenal are making the right call not offering Danny Welbeck a new contract.
The England forward will miss almost the remainder of the season due to a broken ankle, suffered playing in the Europa League last month.
And Jordan, speaking exclusively to talkSPORT, says it is about time the Gunners acted with a business head and not sentimentally.
Under Arsene Wenger the club stayed loyal to the likes of injury-ravaged pair Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla.
But the 51-year-old feels they are now going in a new direction now – with Aaron Ramsey also set to depart the Emirates when his contract expires – and for the better.
Speaking on the Jim White Show, he said: “This is a clearing of the guard – new broom, sweep clean.
“The likelihood is that (Aaron) Ramsey and (Danny) Welbeck are probably not players that (Unai) Emery sees as the make-up of the team he wants to build.
“He wants a different sort of Arsenal, he wants a different flavour and feel about the whole club.
“This is a business if you’re going to pay players £80k-a-week then there’s no room for charity,” he added, before joking: “If you want charity go and get Gordon Taylor’s job at the PFA, it’s nonsense!”
