Ian Wright wants Arsenal to sign Nicolas Pepe, Youri Tielemans and Ben Chilwell this summer as the Gunners look to revamp their squad.

Arsenal are likely to be linked with a number of players in the coming weeks and months as Unai Emery looks to strengthen his side ahead of his second campaign in charge at The Emirates.

The transfer budget available to the Gunners boss could be dependent on whether the north London side win the Europa League final against Chelsea FC next week to seal their spot in the Champions League for next season.

Former Arsenal striker Wright has now given his take on the type of signings that the Gunners need to make this summer.

He feels that they should be moving to land the likes of Lille forward Pepe, Monaco midfielder Tielemans and Leicester City defender Chilwell.

Speaking in an interview with the Daily Mirror, Wright said: “[Arsenal should sign] someone like Ben Chilwell. He is the kind of left-back who is getting better with every game.

“He’s an England international now. Somebody that I’m sure is going to be sought after.

“Then there is Youri Tielemans. He came over from Monaco. He’s on loan at Leicester City and he’s someone that, well there are loads of teams linked with him, but he’s someone that you’d want to have.

“And Nicolas Pepe at Lille. That kind of winger with his intensity, pace and skill.

“Those are the kind of players that are definitely going to improve any team, if I’m totally honest.

“And they’re at the age where they are going to be there for a few years. So that’s a dream list if I’m being totally honest.”

Arsenal are currently preparing for their Europa League final showdown with Chelsea FC in Baku on 29 May after having finished in fifth place in the Premier League table.

The Gunners ended last season without a trophy in what was Arsene Wenger’s final campaign in charge of the north London club.
