Arsenal's mixed season has shone a light on the mass overhaul still needed at the Emirates.
Mike Arteta bought in several new faces during his first summer, but his Gunners side could finish lower than they did last season.
The January arrival of Martin Odegaard on loan has been a big plus although the club's finances could hamper a permanent deal.
As a result other playmakers are being considered ahead of the summer transfer window.

Inter could part with Hakimi if they receive a bid within the region of €50m (£43m).
