Arsene Wenger faces perhaps his most important transfer window as manager of Arsenal this Summer.
Following the much publicised confusion surrounding his position at the club until May, he will need to get things right to justify his two-year extension at the club.
This pressure, coupled with the addition of many Thursday night games in the Europa League, mean that Arsenal will need a strong squad with plenty of depth for the coming season.
Here are some potential players that the club should aim to sign once the transfer window opens on July 1st:

Alexandre Lacazette (Lyon)
Last Summer, while searching for a striker, it was reported that Arsenal were attempting to sign prolific French striker Lacazette, only for his club Lyon to refuse to sell as he was "irreplaceable". Nearly 12 months on and the just-turned 26-year-old is expected to depart Lyon, having said that he will be looking to play Champions League football.
This admission may hamper Arsenal's chances to sign in-demand striker, but Arsene Wenger has never been averse to signing French players, so hopefully Arsenal are still in with some genuine contention for his signature.
Last season seen Lacazette continue his outstanding form with Lyon, being the second top-scorer in the league and making the Europa League squad of the season. A price tag of around £60m means only a few teams would be able to sign the speedy forward, but on paper it would appear that he would be a good fit at Arsenal.


Kylian Mbappe (Monaco)
Possibly the highest rated young player in Europe at the moment, Kylian Mbappe has placed himself firmly on the radar of every top club in the continent. One of the driving forces behind a Ligue 1 win and an unprecedented trip to the Champions League Semi-Finals with Monaco - and still only 18 years old - Mbappe would not easily be lured to Arsenal.
Arsenal have already had an astronomical bid of £87m rejected for the French wunderkind (although the Gunners deny that any offer was placed) and are apparently considering whether to make another attempt.
Comparisons to Thierry Henry have been rife following Mbappe's performances on the world stage, and while these premonitions are premature, it is undoubtable that Mbappe could be one of the best players in the world in the future.
Having broken into the French national team, it's not difficult to see why Wenger might want him at the club and it would represent ambition, but one feels his transfer fee could be too high.


Arda Turan (Barcelona)
After having recently retired from international football at just 30 years of age following a dispute, Barcelona's Turkish midfielder could very well be on his way to Arsenal.
Turan's time at Barcelona has been, perhaps surprisingly, largely negative. He moved to the club in 2015 from Atletico Madrid, having helped them to a La Liga trophy and a Champions League Final. His move to the Nou Camp occurred during a transfer ban, meaning he could not play until January.
Once he did get playing, he hasn't really had the desired impact in Catalonia. This season, he only made 18 appearances (registering 3 goals and 1 assist), so it's likely he may be offloaded this Summer.
At an expected £25m, the midfielder is well within Arsenal's reach, and if he were to recall his Atletico form, would represent good business and shore up Arsenals' midfield.

Ben Chilwell (Leicester City)
Young English left-back ben Chilwell is a realistic target for Arsenal, with the club reportedly being long term admirers of the Leicester City player.
Touted to be a future integral part of the English national team, the 20-year-old defender would be both an affordable and logical signing for the club. Expected to cost somewhere between £5-7m, Chilwell would challenge first-choice left back Nacho Monreal (now 31) and Kieran Gibbs for the position.
While still developing physically, the England Under-21 International man can pick a pass for a winger and is adept at cutting inside when in an attacking position. It's hard to see how buying the highly-rated English youngster could be viewed as a bad thing, and it's not difficult to envision him breaking into the first team if he performs well upon signing.

Riyad Mahrez (Leicester City)
At the beginning of June, Arsene Wenger confirmed his interest in Leicester City playmaker and the 2015/16 PFA player of the year, Riyad Mahrez.
An integral part of the Foxes team that won the league title a year ago, Mahrez may not have emulated his form in the past season, but he is still one of the most highly talented players in England.
Mahrez released a statement earlier this month outlining his intend to leave Leicester City. Following a rough season in the league with Leicester (although a very respectable Champions league run to the quarter final), he felt it the right time to move on.
If Arsenal signed Mahrez, they would be signing a proven, creative premier League player. The club will face competition from the top La Liga clubs, with Barcelona thought to be his preferred destination. Expected to cost £35m, Mahrez could potentially be a fantastic signing.

Pablo Fornals (Malaga)
Probably the least high-profile of the players mentioned, Pablo Fornals has quietly been making a name for himself with La Liga side Malaga – so much so, he was recently handed his international debut for Spain.
Only 21 years old, Fornals has impressed in central midfield for a Malaga side that has struggled this season. Believed to be identified as a prime target for Arsenal this window, Fornals is expected to cost around £15m.
If he were to take to the midfield mantel held down by Santi Cazorla, who has been hampered by consistent bad injuries in recent seasons, he would prove to be an invaluable acquisition for Arsenal.
Even though there is depth on-paper within Arsenal's midfield, the club failed to have a reliable midfield partnership last season, making a solid midfielder like Fornals a priority.
