Should Arsenal next manager Mikel Arteta look to go with three centre-backs, then he already has two players who are well suited to the wing-back role in Hector Bellerin and Sead Kolasinac.
The latter was in and out of the Arsenal side during his first season in England, but has shown he has all the attributes to be a potent weapon down the left hand side.
At centre-back, Arsenal are expected to be busy in the summer when it come stop bringing players in. One was always going to arrive, but it could be that they make two additions following the injury to Laurent Koscielny and continued doubts over Shkodran Mustafi.
Experienced Greek defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos looks to be on his way out of Dortmund, with Mislintat believed to be keen on reuniting with the 29-year-old at the Emirates.
Should Sokratis come in, he would play in the heart of the three man defence, possibly with Nacho Monreal and Calum Chambers on either side – although Konstantinos Mavropanos and Rob Holding are options, while Arsenal are also closely monitoring Caglar Soyuncu at Freiburg.
