Ben White for £50m, sign Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham and Wolves ace Ruben Neves – Arsenal XI to challenge for top four again

Arsenal are making their intentions clear this summer as they look to overhaul their squad ahead of the 2021/22 season.

Big changes were needed after an underwhelming campaign that saw them finish eighth in the Premier League.

Signings were needed while Mikel Arteta wanted to clear out the deadwood in his squad.

The Gunners squad has some really exciting young talents like Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe, but for several reasons could not get things going.

A poor start to the campaign severely hindered them, and Arteta will not want to make the same mistake again.

David Luiz left on a free transfer while Granit Xhaka looks likely to be heading to Roma.

Arsenal still want to offload Willian while Hector Bellerin is said to be available for just £15million.

Tavares was Arsenal’s first signing of the summer

The Gunners have been linked to several big name players, but are yet to land any of their top targets.

Left-back Nuno Tavares has signed from Benfica as a back-up to Kieran Tierney.

Here’s who Arsenal could sign this summer.

Ben White

The Brighton defender looks almost certain to be playing his football at the Emirates this season.

talkSPORT understands that a £50million deal has been agreed, with the Gunners fending off interest from Chelsea and Everton.

Arsenal need centre-back reinforcements and look to have landed a top player in White, who was part of England’s squad the reached the Euro 2020 final.

Tammy Abraham

A centre-forward is another position of need for Arteta, with Alexandre Lacazette on the transfer list.

Chelsea would be open to selling Abraham in order to help fund their move for Erling Haaland.

The Blues are said to value him at around £40million, which could be a stumbling block for any deal.

The striker hit 15 Premier League goals for Chelsea in the 2019/20 season when he was leading the line for Frank Lampard.

Abraham managed 12 goals and six assists in 32 games for Chelsea last season

Ruben Neves

With Xhaka set to be heading for the exit door, Arteta will need midfield reinforcements to play alongside Thomas Partey.

Wolves ace Neves has been touted as a possible target, but the Midlands club will be reluctant to sell one of their most prized assets.

The player’s agent, Jorge Mendes, was said to be in contact with the Gunners over a possible transfer.

A fee of around £35million has been touted.

Here is how Arsenal could line-up next season if Arteta lands some of his top targets.
