Arsenal boss Unai Emery has reportedly fired a warning to the board over the number of signings he expects this summer.
The Gunners are desperately looking for reinforcements to help overhaul their depleted squad, and they have been linked with a number of possible additions.
They did sign teenager Gabriel Martinelli for a fee of £6m, but deals for William Saliba and Kieran Tierney are yet to get over the line, while it remains to be seen if interest in Dani Ceballos and Wilfried Zaha comes to fruition.
Speaking ahead of their friendly against Bayern Munich, Emery claimed: “Our target is to get three or four players who really improve our squad.
“We are being very demanding about the possibility to sign very expensive players.
“We have very good young players who can progress but we need others to come here to help us.
“We are having a lot of meetings with the club, with Edu and also with Josh and Stan Kroenke in Denver.
“We have a clear idea and that is to sign the players in the positions we need who can help us with big performances.
“We start with our first target and if we cannot achieve that we move on to the second target. But every time it is someone who will improve the squad.”
