Arsenal's much-changed XI next season with six signings after three 'agreements' reached

Arsenal could have a new-look starting XI next season if they complete all their intended summer transfer business. Mikel Arteta could bring in six new faces to his squad, with agreements reportedly reached with three players already in Matt Turney, Aaron Hickey and Marquinhos. Express Sport looks at how the Gunners could line up with all their new signings.

Goalkeeper – Turner

USA goalkeeper Turner has already agreed to join the club from New England Revolution in the summer. He is likely to be second choice to Aaron Ramsdale, with Bernd Leno set to leave the Emirates in search of regular first-team football.

But if Ramsdale is unavailable at any point, Turner will be thrust into action. Turner only made his international debut last year but has already won 16 caps.

Attack – Saka, Jesus, Marquinhos

The third agreement Arsenal have struck is for Brazilian youngster Marquinhos. The Gunners are set to pay Sao Paulo around £2.5m for his signature.

Marquinhos is seen as a player for the future but if he impresses in pre-season, he could make a similar impact to that of Gabriel Martinelli. Gabriel Jesus is a top striker target for Arteta and Manchester City could be willing to let him leave, with his contract expiring in 2023.

Bukayo Saka is the first name on the team sheet for the Gunners. The England star has again been the standout player this season.
