Arsenal planning five signings for the summer

Mikel Arteta to oversee Arsenal changes this summer

Arsenal have their sights on signing five players during the summer transfer window, football.london claims.

The Gunners have experienced a dismal league season, but they could still qualify for Europe with two matches left.

Regardless of this, there will be a squad rebuild this summer, and Mikel Arteta is expected to oversee the changes.

The hierarchy continue to trust Arteta for the manager's role, and they will back him with additional funds to bolster the squad.

The Gunners are likely to recoup part of the funds from player sales, and it is claimed that there could be at least five new arrivals.

The north London giants are eyeing a new striker, playmaker, central midfielder, right-back and central defender.

There are also question marks regarding the future of goalkeeper Bernd Leno as he enters the final two years of his contract.

Leno has been inconsistent since the turn of the year, and the Gunners have recently been linked with Athletic Bilbao's Unai Simon.
