It was a mixed first season in charge of Arsenal for Unai Emery, who almost steered the Gunners back into the Champions League.
A 5th placed finish and an appearance in the Europa League final represented a decent improvement on Arsene Wenger's final year in charge, but it still wasn't enough for them to make a return to European footballs elite.
Squad depth has been cited for this, with them particularly lacking out wide and in central midfield, which has led to links once again to Yannick Carrasco.
The Belgium international has been out in the Chinese Super League with Dalian Yifang for the last 18 months after making a big money move from Atletico Madrid, but it's believed that he's keen for a return to Europe.
Emery originally earmarked him as a target back in January but with the club only in the market then for loan arrivals, they couldn't get a deal over the line.
He's expected to cost around £30m which seems a rather modest fee for a player who's played in Champions League finals for a top club, but Emery is reportedly being given a budget of £45m, which seems ridiculous for a club as big as Arsenal.
So if this move comes to fruition it'll take a sizeable chunk out of the Spaniard's transfer kitty, but with Arsenal in desperate need of wingers and pace on the flanks, he could be worth the gamble.
