The Arsenal manager had a busy summer last year, signing Lucas Torreira, Bernd Leno, Sokratis Papastahhopoulos and Matteo Guendouzi for a combined total of around £75million while Stephan Lichtsteiner joined for free.

While reports suggest there will be fewer arrivals this time around, the Gunners are still expected to welcome some fresh faces to the Emirates - so how could they fit in?

Arsenal have been inconsistent at the back this season, managing just five clean sheets in the Premier League but shutting out Napoli over two legs in the Europa League quarter-finals.

Manchester United ace Eric Bailly is a potential target for the Gunners but would cost around £30m while Getafe ace Djene Dakonam, known by his first name in Spain, is valued at just £13.5m. Espanyol defender Mario Hermoso is also attracting attention, with any of the trio capable of slotting into Arsenal's back three in Emery's preferred 3-4-2-1 formation.

Adrien Rabiot is available for free but would command hefty wages while Christopher Nkunku is also on Arsenal's radar.

Atletico are said to have made contact with Arsenal over the frontman, who would provide a like-for-like replacement for his compatriot.

Danny Welbeck's departure, coupled with Denis Suarez's failed loan move, has increased the pressure on Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi to deliver when Arsenal opt for a traditional 4-4-2.
