The Gunners do have a promising core of young talent to work with, which is offering cause for optimism, but decisions need to be made on more senior stars that are either approaching the end of their contracts or offering little to the collective cause.

"One to 11, if you go right through the team, Leno's not signing a new deal by all accounts, Bellerin at right-back is not holding that position down, the two central defenders, you'd say there is uncertainty over who is going to play there. "[Kieran] Tierney the left-back is probably the only one who is a shoo-in as a defender.

. [Bukayo] Saka, [Emile] Smith Rowe have been outstanding this season. "I think a minimum of maybe five changes. I think the front players are still good - I'd keep [Alexandre] Lacazette, I like him actually in the club.  "[Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang's had his problems this season, [Gabriel] Martinelli needs to be used more, maybe on the wing perhaps. Then you've got Saka to play, Smith Rowe, make sure they build those careers. "But they need a base in midfield, [Thomas] Partey needs a partner alongside him, they need to spend there. "Gabriel has been disappointing as a central defender, David Luiz is about to leave. So there is huge surgery to be made by the manager." The bigger pictureThe 2020-21 campaign, which started with Community Shield glory, has been another inconsistent one for Arsenal. They are looking to finish with a flourish, having collected three successive Premier League wins, but European football may not be on the agenda next season and that will make it tougher to get fresh faces on board. Change is on the cards, though, in north London and the squad overseen by Arteta in 2021-22 could look markedly different to the one that closes out the current campaign with clashes against Crystal Palace and Brighton.
