Barcelona outcast Philippe Coutinho is reportedly one of three players being targeted by Arsenal this summer.

Mikel Arteta has reportedly drawn up a three-man transfer shortlist for the summer window and has prioritised adding experienced players to Arsenal's squad.

The Spaniard's first season in management ended on a huge high thanks to victory over Chelsea in Saturday's FA Cup final at Wembley.

Focus has now turned to making Arsenal more consistent in the Premier League next season, with Arteta expected to be backed to strengthen in various positions.

According to The Times, the former Manchester City assistant intends to switch to a 4-3-3 formation in 2020-21 and has three players in mind to slot into the system.

Barcelona outcast Philippe Coutinho and out-of-contract Chelsea forward Willian are said to have been eyed up to slot into the frontline, while Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey is the third player on Arteta's wanted list.

Meanwhile, the same report indicates that Arsenal have accelerated efforts to tie Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Emiliano Martinez to new long-term contracts.
