Arsenal have reportedly scouted five forwards from across Europe as the London club begin laying out their plans for the upcoming summer transfer window.
The Gunners have had a great season and are now just 10 games away from their first Premier League title in 20 years.
However, they have no plans to rest on their laurels as the club is already actively working on improving the squad.
A top-class midfielder is the priority, but there are also decisions to be made in the striking department.
Arsenal already have Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah, who were absolutely fantastic even though they weren’t in front of goal.
Loanee Folarin Balogun has shone at Reims this season with only two players having scored more goals in Ligue 1.

Arsenal must now decide whether to integrate the 21-year-old into the squad or capitalize on his fine form with several interested teams.
If they want to do the latter, they may look to bring in a more physical forward to give them another option in attack, especially when teams are sitting and defending deep.

They also take note of 6ft 3in striker Rasmus Höglund, who scored five goals in two matches for Denmark last week at the age of 20.
Omishen is perhaps the less realistic option with the Napoli star one of the most sought after strikers in Europe after his impressive form with the Serie A leaders.
Valhović is a household name for Arsenal fans as the striker famously turned down a move to London in favor of joining Juventus, where he scored 20 goals in 49 appearances.

Calvert-Lewin has had a difficult season due to injury but he’s proven himself in the Premier League and shouldn’t require too much money.
Abraham has done well in Italy and has been linked with a move to the Emirates before joining Roma in 2021.
