Euro 2020 is hurtling towards its conclusion, and the final – held at Wembley – is just over one week away, however, that means a ramp-up in transfers.
And Arsenal, who are widely expected to undergo a major rebuild, could welcome as many as five new stars as they look to launch an assault on the European places.
Mikel Arteta's men missed out on the European spots for the first time in almost a quarter of a century.
Daily Star Sport looks at five targets that could end up at the Emirates after Euro 2020 finishes next week.
An image of Nuno Tavares, sat on what appeared to be a private jet, alongside his agent sent Arsenal fans into meltdown of Friday.
The young Benfica defender is rumoured to be days away from a switch to North London for a fee of £6.8million.
Tavares has only got 30 appearances to his name, including one against Arsenal in the Europa League last February, when he made a cameo off the bench.
Arsenal's midfielder Matteo Guendouzi was considered as part of a swap deal, however, it looks to be cash only.

Albert Sambi Lokonga
Belgium's golden generation may be running out of time, and they crashed out Euro 2020 against Italy on Friday evening, but that doesn't mean they've stopped producing talents.
Albert Sambi Lokonga has been turning heads at Anderlecht – in the Pro League – and according to Fabrizio Romano, a deal is close.
"It’s not 100 per cent completed yet because they need to complete a few things. They’ve got to fix future sell-on percentage. Arsenal are offering five per cent and Anderlecht want 15 per cent. There is a gap.
"Arsenal’s bid is €17.5m with €4.5m as [add-ons]. Anderlecht are prepared to accept if they have €20m guaranteed."
Ben White's inclusion in the Euro 2020 squad took some fans by surprise, but White has been silently having the season of his young career.
And, after impressing for Brighton, Arsenal are desperate to sign the centre-back, and, according to football.london, the deal is done.
However, it wasn't easy to secure White for Arteta; last season, Leeds United were desperate to take him permanently after spending a season on loan in Yorkshire.
And Manchester City were keeping tabs on the player should Aymeric Laporte leave in the transfer window.
