Laurent Koscielny has claimed that Arsenal chiefs already know exactly which players they want to sign in the summer transfer window.

The north London side are likely to be on the lookout for significant reinforcements this summer as Arsene Wenger looks to bounce back from a disappointing campaign.

Arsenal are currently outside the top four in the Premier League and head into the final round of games one point behind fourth-placed Liverpool.

It remains to be seen whether the Gunners will be able to overtake Liverpool and finish in the top four this weekend.

There have been reports that the north London side have been closing in on the signature of Schalke left-back Sead Kolasinac in recent days.

And Koscielny has given his take on what he expects to see from the Gunners in the summer transfer window.

Koscielny is quoted as saying by Metro: “I think that they know the players they want [to sign]

“They know for a long time so I think if we are qualified or not for the Champions League they have targets in their head and they will do everything to have the best players for us, a player who can help the team to be better and who can change the team to have some more positive results for this club.

“Would Kolasinac do that? I hope!”
