Of the numerous positions the Gunners are hoping to reinforce in, focal midfield seems, by all accounts, to be the principle need.
This is nothing unexpected as Arsenal are looking a little light in the motor room.
Dani Ceballos has gotten back to Real Madrid after two progressive credit spells, Xhaka is en route to AS Roma, while Guendouzi and Torreira are required to proceed onward this mid year.
That would leave Partey, Willock and Elneny as the three first-group focal midfielders for next season. Scarcely quality and profundity to push for a main six completion.

“I feel prepared for a top club and furthermore joining an unfamiliar club is a likely alternative for me, why not?” he revealed to CorSport last month. “Whenever there are openings, I will consider my future.”
Talking in front of the Euro 2020 opener, Locatelli uncovered when a choice with respect to his future will be made.
“It’s simply talk. I will choose after the European Championship,” he said, according to Football Italia. “There’s a particularly significant contest to play in, and I’m just centered around this.
“I depend on what occurs on the pitch, the genuine articles, all the other things is simply tattle, it’s futile to discuss it.”
Hindering Locatelli of rousing the Azzurri to triumph is a potential future Arsenal partner in Turkey protector Zeki Celik.
The right-back has been promoted as a swap for Hector Bellerin and is going into the competition on a high subsequent to assisting Lille with beating Paris Saint-Germain to the Ligue 1 title this season.
