Arsenal are currently leading the Premier League standings with an eight-point advantage and are in a pole position to win their first league title in almost two decades.

According to Sportbible, Mikel Arteta's charges will not rest on their laurels and are expected to strengthen their squad ahead of next season.

Which players does Arsenal want?

The striking department has been identified as one that needs reinforcing, with reports claiming that Arsenal have a five-man transfer shortlist for the position.

The Evening Standard reports that Everton ace Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Juventus' Dusan Vlahovic, ex-Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham and Napoli hitman Victor Osimhen are among their transfer targets.

Atalanta's Rasmus Hojlund, who has scored five goals in two games for Denmark in the last week, is also on Arsenal's radar.

The Gunners' interest in Hojlund comes at a time the youngster has courted interest across Europe, thanks to his impressive goal-scoring form this season.

The 20-year-old has scored an eyewatering 17 goals in 27 league appearances, with Paris Saint-Germain superstar, Kylian Mbappe and Lille's Jonathan David the only two players who have scored more goals.

Meanwhile, Arsenal signing any of the five players will definitely spell doom for Folarin Balogun as far as the youngster's future at the Emirates Stadium is concerned.

Balogun has enjoyed a successful spell with Reims, with who he has scored 17 goals in 27 matches so far in the Ligue 1.
