Arsenal want to make four summer signings, as they look to add both quality and depth to their squad.
It has been suggested that they are targeting two central midfielders a winger and another left-back.
They were heavily linked with a move for Brighton’s Moises Caicedo in January, but the South Coast side refused to sell him, although they may prove more amenable at the end of the season.
Declan Rice is also being reported as a priority, but the West Ham captain is likely to be the subject of interest from a number of Premier League clubs in the next transfer window, including both Manchester clubs and Chelsea, and the Gunners will be wary of being drawn into a bidding war.
The news they are looking for another left-back could signal the end of their time at Arsenal for Keiran Tierney, and Nuno Tavares currently on loan with Marseille, whilst Albert “Sambi” Lokonga, currently on loan with Crystal Palace for the remainder of the season , is another one whose future is under a cloud.
