Unai Emery has reportedly been given a limited transfer budget for the upcoming summer window.
It has been claimed that the Spaniard could be working with as little as £40 million to build for next season.
A figure that is just not enough in the modern transfer window, so Emery is going to need to find a bargain or two to make the most of his money.
With concerns rising about Arsenal’s defence and Mesut Ozil failing to break into Emery’s plans, the squad could look radically different next season.
We’ve taken a closer look at the potential bargains that he could pick up as he tries to put his own stamp on the Arsenal squad.
Brahimi is perennially linked with moves to the Premier League and it appears that a transfer away from Porto could happen in the near future.
The player is out of contract at the end of the season and talks over a new deal are believed to be stalling.
Brahimi is free to discuss terms with foreign sides and could be a potential bargain.
Rabiot is another player to be linked with a free transfer to the Premier League.
The PSG midfielder has a host of European clubs clamouring for his signature after he rejected a new deal with the Ligue 1 champions.
Tottenham, Barcelona, Liverpool and Arsenal have all been linked with moves. It would be a huge coup if Arsenal could sign him for nothing.
Suarez joined Arsenal on loan in January and if he goes on to impress, there will no doubt be talk of a permanent move to the Emirates.
If the player himself is also keen to join up with Arsenal permanently, the Gunners may well be able to negotiate a cut-price deal with Barcelona.
Jean Michael Seri
Jean Michael Seri has been one of a few bright spots for Fulham during their Premier League return.
Signed from Nice, it was a shock to see Fulham complete a deal for the Ivorian in the first place.
Seri will be available on the cheap if Fulham drop into the Championship. They will undoubtedly have to cash in and Arsenal should be keeping tabs on his situation.
Nothing beats a bit of experience, right?
Juan Mata looks like he could be on his way out of Old Trafford in the summer and Arsenal would offer him the chance to stay in the Premier League and return to London.
Mata could be a very useful squad member in what would be a young Arsenal squad next season.
Arsenal have been left short at the back on a number of occasions this season and depth is something that Unai Emery is going to have address in the summer.
Matteo Darmian has failed to break into Manchester United’s plans and his long-term future appears to be elsewhere.
He could be a useful addition to Emery’s squad but may have his eyes on a return to Italy.
Chelsea defender Gary Cahill will leave the Stamford Bridge outfit in the summer when his contract expires.
While he is no longer at the peak of his powers, Cahill would add plenty of experience to Arsenal’s defence and become a useful squad member.
Like the aforementioned Mata, Cahill’s leadership qualities could help Emery.
