Arsenal made moves in the winter transfer window, and reports suggest it could happen again this summer with moves for Jonny Evans and Nabil Fekir.

The Arsene Wenger tutored side signed Armenian star Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Gabon international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in January, with forward Alexis Sanchez leaving the side to join Manchester United.

The Daily Mail suggested that more in and outs are expected in the summer before the FIFA World Cup in Russia, and that involves £45million-rated Lyon attacker Fekir and a £25million move for West Brom defender Jonny Evans.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger already has Mesut Ozil, Aubameyang, Mkhitaryan, and Alexandre Lacazette in attack, along with back-ups like Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi, and so how he plans to fit Fekir in, seems difficult to see.

Undoubtedly, the 24-year-old France international is a top quality player, as seen by his 21 goals scored and five assists made in 31 matches so far this term, and so if there is a likely solution, then he would be an upgrade in that role.

In contrast, bringing in a player of Jonny Evans quality to strengthen the defence is undoubtedly required. Arsenal currently boasts of the worst defensive record of Premier League’s top seven clubs, conceding 36 in 27 matches.
