According to Goal, Arsenal are ready to make as many as five signings in key areas around the pitch, with Arteta seemingly keen on two new full-backs, a midfielder, a striker, and a goalkeeper.

It remains to be seen if Arsenal will be able to get all five of these players in, while Goal also don’t name any specific targets for the north London giants.

Full-backs make sense as a priority area to strengthen, with Hector Bellerin not at his best recently, while Kieran Tierney has proven rather injury prone in his time at the Emirates Stadium so far.

It also makes sense to strengthen up front after a surprising lack of goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this term.
