The Gunners qualification to European football next season will only add more fixture congestion to an already thin squad after the club confirmed there are going to be outgoing of players who are out of contracts.

Discussing plans for the market and the need for reinforcements in the summer, the boss said: “We are going to have certain resources, not unlimited resources, some resources.”

And with our resources we have to play and do what we have to do in the best possible way” He added.

We don’t know what the rest are going to have in terms of resources, which I’m assuming is going to be challenging because now it’s not a top three or top four league.”

Now it is a top eight or 10 teams that are involved. That’s why we have to find a way to do again what we did last summer.”

Based on the trouble of few key injuries caused late into the season, the need for strength in depth is clear.

Due to goal scoring worries, a top striker may be in demand after the potential departure of Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah who are out of contract next month.

According to sport outlet, The Sun reported the Gunners are looking to raise £60million from player sales of his squad to help fund his dream summer.

Should he achieve that, it could allow the Gunners to spend as much as £150m after the sales of nine players to leave the club.

Reports states that Spurs are interested in Arsenal target Gabriel Jesus following their fourth place finish and look set for a bidding war with North London rivals.

Spurs boss Antonio Conte who is keen to strengthen his squad for the next season’s campaign has shortlisted the Brazilian international as his first target summer.

Former Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham is at the top of the list for a striker should they miss out on the Brazilian international to Spurs.
