It was revealed that the former Arsenal midfielder wants two centre backs and one defensive midfielder.
The Gunners have already been linked with Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly who is said to be available for just £55m.
RB Leipzig’s French defender Dayot Upamecano is also a top transfer target for the North London club.
Arsenal signed centre backs David Luiz and William Saliba to solve their defensive issues in the summer but the problem has not been solved.
Davis Luiz has not had the best of starts to his Arsenal career following his £8m transfer from London rivals Chelsea, while young Frenchman Saliba won’t return to Arsenal from Saint Etienne FC of France until next summer when he finishes his loan spell.
