Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta could be backed with a significant transfer budget during the next transfer window.
The Gunners spent nearly £150m on six players last summer. It has paid dividends with the club vying for a top-four finish.
Regardless of their final position, the hierarchy are prepared to back Arteta with another spending spree at the end of the season.
Meanwhile, the club are also eyeing a new winger, central midfielder, left-sided centre-back and a right-back ahead of next season.
Out of those positions, the least priority is a new right-back. It may depend on the fitness of Takehiro Tomiyasu over the coming months.
The Japan international has been struggling with a calf problem since the beginning of the year. This could be a cause for concern.
Cedric Soares has done a credible job as the deputy in recent weeks, but the Portuguese has the tendency to make unforced errors.
