Arsenal were one of the biggest mysteries in the Premier League heading into this season.
With Arsene Wenger departing, every football fan up and down the country would have been intrigued to see how Arsenal were going to respond.
The Gunners could have easily fallen away from the rest, similarly to how Manchester United struggled immediately after Sir Alex Ferguson retired.
But Arsenal have responded to Wenger leaving well. Even after periods of poor form, they have had a solid season.
Despite just missing out on Champions League qualification by one point to North London rivals Tottenham, they have a huge opportunity to make it into the competition when they face Chelsea in the Europa League final later this month.
This final gives Arsenal a great chance to secure a place in Europe’s biggest competition, which will be a huge boost to them heading into the summer.
Here I will pick out the 10 big questions that Arsenal need to answer ahead of next season.
Can the Europa League final propel Arsenal forward?
Arsenal beat Valencia and Napoli on their way to the Europa League Final against Chelsea on 29 May.
This is a huge game for the Gunners, as it offers them a chance at some silverware and Champions League qualification.
A win here would be massive for Arsenal moving into the summer.
Can Arsenal's front two be as lethal next season?
Both Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have had superb seasons for Arsenal.
They have bagged a combined 50 goals in all competitions, and when they have started together, they have looked deadly.
Fans will be hoping they get the chance to start together more next year, and that they can kick on even further.
What will Mesut Ozil's role be?
Mesut Ozil has seen his significance at Arsenal decrease in the last couple of seasons. He has only been a bit-part player this campaign with reports emerging that he had fallen out with Unai Emery.
Regardless, Ozil is still one of the most naturally gifted players in the league on his day and he’s a joy to watch at times, and if he is playing and on form, Arsenal will be better off.
What will Arsenal's transfer resources be?
In recent years, Arsenal have been left behind somewhat with the huge spending power of their rivals at the top of the league.
The Gunners simply cannot keep up with this, but they will have to spend this summer to improve the squad and continue to close in on the top three places.
Will Arsenal finally sign Nicolas Pepe?
Long-term Arsenal target Nicolas Pepe has had a brilliant season in Ligue 1 with Lille, scoring 20 and assisting 11.
He is now attracting interest from a host of clubs around Europe but with Arsenal in need of a winger this summer, Pepe would be a great signing for the Gunners.
Will they look for Ramsey's replacement?
It really is a body blow that Aaron Ramsey has decided to leave Arsenal for Juventus this summer.
Arsenal do not have anyone else they can call upon to do a similar job that Ramsey does as well as the Welshman.
He will not be cheap to replace and it will be difficult to find someone to fit the mould as Ramsey does.
Where else will the Gunners look to strengthen?
There’s no doubt that the wings and midfield are the areas Arsenal need to strengthen most.
But also with Petr Cech retiring, the Gunners may decide to bring in another goalkeeper as cover for Bernd Leno. They may also try to bring in a centre-back to help to ease their defensive frailties.
Will more youngsters break into the first-team?
As has always been a theme with Arsenal, they have never been shy to give youngsters a chance in the first-team, and that has continued this year.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles has asserted himself as the first-choice right-back, and next season we could see the likes of Eddie Nketiah and Joe Willock get more chances in the first-team.
Will Lucas Torreira become a leading player?
Lucas Torreira was Arsenal’s marquee signing last summer at £27 million. Torreira really did live up to the price tag as well, as his pitbull mentality really aided the Gunners midfield.
At 23, he has many great years ahead of him and if he continues to progress as he is doing, he will become one of their best players and will establish himself as a captain for the future.
What should Arsenal's aims be for next season?
Arsenal will be hoping to see more signs of progress next season as they start their second season under Unai Emery.
Realistically, they should hope to gain a place in the top four after missing out so narrowly this season. Also, they will want to make some good progress in the cup competitions to try to pick up some silverware.
They will need to show a lot more consistency next season, which will be vital in their hopes of progressing both domestically and in Europe.
