After a disappointing season so far, Arsenal will (once again) have to be active in the summer if they want to see any improvements. Last summer wasn’t a cheap one for the Gunners as they spent £72 million on Nicolas Pepe, who hasn’t been able to hit the ground running in north London, and they will need more spending this year.
Arsenal tried strengthening at the back with the signings of David Luiz and Kieran Tierney, but both have been unreliable; Luiz is an inconsistent performer whilst Tierney has struggled with various injuries and barely featured this season.
Young prospect William Saliba was also signed before being loaned back to St. Etienne. His arrival in the summer should be a boost for Arsenal but he alone won’t be the answer. Who else can Arsenal sign?
The Londoners don't seem to attract the big names they once did and in the same way their rivals do. However, this doesn't mean Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Mesut Ozil-esque signings are impossible for the Gunners.
From a broken defence, to inconsistencies in midfield - Arsenal are going to need a wide range of names to bulk up their failing squad. Here, we take a look at four realistic targets for Mikel Arteta to sign in the next window.
