Arsenal are reportedly ready to sign a centre-back and a central midfielder once the transfer window reopens in the summer (via The Telegraph).
It’s going to be an important summer for Arsenal regardless of whether the club appoints a new manager or not.
There are several key positions on the pitch which Arsenal need to reinforce and it seems that the club has identified two of them.
Reports suggest that the club has prioritised central midfield and centre-back as two positions which need reinforcement.
Arsenal’s issues at centre-back are no secret but central midfield is an important area too.
Santi Cazorla will presumably leave the club and Jack Wilshere is no closer to signing a new deal which only leaves Aaron Ramsey, Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny in the middle.

Reports suggest that the club are looking at the 22-year-old German midfielder, Max Meyer whose current contract with Schalke expires at the end of the season.
The two positions listed are in desperate need of reinforcement but it would be foolish if Arsenal didn’t sign a goalkeeper as well. Max Meyer would be a shrewd transfer but the Gunners need similar quality at centre-back and in goals too.
