An insight into the summer transfer plans of Arsenal has been forthcoming this week.
Arsenal need a rebuild
Despite an FA Cup and Community Shield win during his first season at the club, Arsenalâs decline has continued under Mikel Artetaâs management.
The Gunners are languishing in midtable in the Premier League, and look set to miss out on European football for the first time since before Arsene Wenger’s tenure.
Arsenal, in a bid to halt their ongoing decline, have undergone something of a rebuild over the last year or so, as they attempt to fix years and years of poor decisions on the transfer front.
Players such as Mesut Ozil, Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis have already been shipped out in an attempt to remove deadwood from the club’s squad, whilst there have been some promising performers brought in, including Gabriel and Thomas Partey.
The rebuild, though, looks far from over.
Arsenal looking to improve five areas
Despite the fact that they look set to be without Europa League or Champions League football next term, Arsenal are reportedly plotting a fairly busy summer transfer window.
According to football.london, the Gunners will be in the market to sign players in at least five positions.
The positions which Mikel Arteta and co. are said to be keen to strengthen come in the form of: a back-up to Bernd Leno, back-up to Kieran Tierney, a new right-back, a central attacking midfielder and a central midfielder.
Arsenal will be looking to add to their side in multiple positions this summer.
