Arsenal face an exciting end to their first campaign under Unai Emery.
The Spaniard has overseen his side’s development since his arrival at the Emirates Stadium and, despite their inconsistencies, they remain in a strong position to end the season well.
Arsenal stay firmly in the hunt for a top-four finish in the Premier League, and with Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur struggling to convince, a strong finish to the campaign could bode well for Emery and his men.
Perhaps more excitingly, the Gunners find themselves in the semi-finals of the Europa League following their victory over two legs against Napoli.
The North London club will take on Valencia in the penultimate round of the competition as Emery looks to clinch the trophy for the fourth time in his managerial career.
Beyond this season, there is still work to be done, however. New signings will be required at Arsenal, and added impetus will be necessary if they are to push for more success next term.
So, take a look at a selection of midfielders who we feel the Gunners should consider signing this summer!
Diawara is a hugely promising player, and a move away from Napoli to secure a consistent starting place could be a wise decision.
Watford star Doucoure would provide Arsenal with some much-needed dynamism and dribbling ability.
Sanson is an underrated player and has been consistently reliable for Marseille throughout the years.
Barella has been excellent for Cagliari in the past two seasons and would add youth, quality and efficiency to the ranks.
Demirbay, who can play in holding or attacking midfield, is a key player for Hoffenheim but would be an impressive coup for Arsenal.
Fornals has been impressive for Villarreal this season and would add creativity to Arsenal’s squad.
Aouar has emerged as one of Europe’s most promising young midfielders. He’s been exceptional for Lyon and would be an astute signing for Arsenal.
