Following the FA Cup win, there is a reported £30 million windfall that would be part of the summer transfer funds and Mikel Arteta is hoping to make good use of it.

The latest report now reveals that the Spanish manager wants to sign five new players this summer transfer window.

Mail is still reporting that Mikel Arteta is still interested in the signature of Atletico Madrid midfielder, Thomas Partey as he plans a new look for his midfield and that includes having Dani Ceballos for another loan spell or permanent deal.

The Gunners boss also wants to sign Brazilian international Willian from Chelsea and hoping that an agreement is not reached between the player and the Blues team.

A new centre-back is also highly needed and a priority while a deal for Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho is also in place.

Finally, keeping Gabon international forward, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the Emirates Stadium will be a major achievement for manager Mikel Arteta ahead of the coming season as he hopes to build the team around him.
