Arsenal boss Unai Emery has been warned he needs to sign at least six new players this summer.
According to Paul Merson, Emery needs to rebuild his defence plus add a new goalkeeper and defensive midfielder to his ranks.
“Defensively they need everything,” Merson told Sky Sports.
“From a goalkeeper, as Petr Cech was great but isn’t now, centre-halves and a holding midfielder.
“The full-backs aren’t really good enough either so they’ve got a lot of work to do.
“Arsenal need to tighten up and become hard to beat which, based on what he did at Sevilla, Emery can do.
“Emery knows the Spanish market well so I think he’ll be looking there, and to France, but I can’t see them bringing in any English players.
“The good thing is that they’ve made an appointment early so Emery has time to improve the squad and if they can get Ozil, Aubameyang and Lacazette playing well then they’re flying.”
