Arsene Wenger has drawn up a five-man Arsenal transfer wish list this summer, according to reports.

Tribal Football is reporting that Wenger recently travelled to France with Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis to discuss potential summer signings.

The same article states that Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe and Nice midfielder Jean Serie were the focus of their conversations in France.

However, the story goes on to suggest that Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette, Monaco midfielder Thomas Lemar and RB Leipzig striker Emil Forsberg could also be targets for Arsenal this summer.

Arsenal finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last term after Liverpool ended up a point ahead of Wenger’s side to secure a place in next season’s Champions League.

The north London side won their third FA Cup crown in four seasons last month thanks to a 2-1 win against Premier League champions Chelsea.

The Gunners, who have not won the title since 2004, signed five players in the summer transfer window in 2016 as Wenger brought in Shkodran Mustafi and Granit Xhaka arrived in big-money deals.
