Arsenal have got Valencia midfielder Carlos Soler on their summer transfer hit list.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is ready to shake up his squad this summer as he is braced for some big name departures as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could go and they expect to raise serious cash.

That sort of cash is clearly out of Arsenal’s league but there will be interest this summer with Atletico Madrid also watching developments and it will depend on whether Valencia can be tempted to sell.

Arsenal made discreet enquiries before Soler signed his new deal and have been impressed with his recent performances, including scoring in the Champions League against Manchester United last season.

Valencia are aware of Arsenal’s interest and Soler is regarded as one of Spain’s best young prospects and he is tipped for the senior national team.

Arsenal are ready for a major rebuild this summer as Arteta wants to stamp his authority on the squad.

Aubameyang will only have one year left on his deal and Arsenal are likely to have to cash in while Alexandre Lacazette also wants to play in the Champions League.

Matteo Guendouzi is another who could raise serious cash this summer to help the rebuild.

They have got RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano on their hit list and Soler is on the radar as they plan for the future under Arteta.
