MIKEL ARTETA’S squad is at least three players short to cope with Europa League football.

ASTON VILLA

STEVEN GERRARD burst out of the transfer traps.

Philippe Coutinho and keeper Robin Olsen made their loan moves permanent.

Capturing Marseille’s French star Boubacar Kamara on a free was a coup, with Sevilla defender Diego Carlos a steal at £26million.

Expect a move for Rangers defender Calvin Bassey, with a No 8 and striker also targeted.

INS: Philippe Coutinho (Barcelona) £17m, Robin Olsen (Roma) £3.15m, Boubacar Kamara (Marseille) free, Diego Carlos (Sevilla) £26m.

OUTS: Matt Targett (Newcastle) £12m, Indiana Vassilev (Inter Miami) loan.

INS: None.

OUTS: Gary Cahill (released).

BRENTFORD

THE Bees are eyeing wing-backs on both flanks and also desperately want to keep Christian Eriksen after his short-term deal.

A back-up for keeper David Raya is needed, too.

INS: None.

OUTS: Mathias Jorgensen (released), Julien Jeanvier (released).

BRIGHTON

ANY incomings are likely to be long-term prospects such as Paraguayan Julio Enciso, 18, who saw a January move from Libertad collapse but is set to join this summer.

Meanwhile, Yves Bissouma and Marc Cucurella are courted by bigger clubs.

INS: Julio Enciso (Libertad) £9.5m.

OUTS: None.

CHELSEA

THOMAS TUCHEL must replace key centre-backs Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, unsettled Romelu Lukaku could leave and fellow forward Timo Werner has struggled, too.

The new Chelsea owners are set to splurge around £200m in their first window.

Sevilla’s Jules Kounde, Brighton’s Marc Cucurella and Manchester City pair Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling are on a hitlist that also includes Robert Lewandowski and Ousmane Dembele.

INS: None.

OUTS: Antonio Rudiger (Real Madrid) free, Andreas Christensen (Barcelona) free.

CRYSTAL PALACE

EAGLES chiefs will hope to build on a strong first season under Patrick Vieira with a smart transfer window.

Central midfield is a priority and Lens enforcer Cheick Doucoure is close to completing a move to Selhurst Park.

Boss Vieira also wants a striker and likes Arsenal’s Eddie Nketiah — though he is now expected to pen a new Gunners deal.

Jack Butland and Christian Benteke could also depart.

INS: None.

OUTS: Martin Kelly (released).

Eddie Nketiah is wanted by Crystal Palace but the striker is leaning towards signing a contract extension at Arsenal

EVERTON

CASH is tight but James Tarkowski is lined up on a free.

Midfield targets Christian Eriksen and Harry Winks would add guile.

But Brazilian forward Richarlison wants out this summer and could leave for £65m.

INS: None.

OUTS: Cenk Tosun, Gylfi Sigurdsson (released).

FULHAM

MANAGER Marco Silva wants to add a central defender, midfielder, right-back and winger before the new campaign kicks off.

LEEDS

JESSE MARSCH has already poached attacking midfielder Brenden Aaronson and right-back Rasmus Kristensen from his old club RB Salzburg for a combined £35m.

A striker is needed but cash hinges on if Kalvin Phillips or Raphinha leave.

They also like Manchester United midfielder James Garner and Bayern Munich ace Marc Roca.

INS: Brenden Aaronson (RB Salzburg) £25m, Rasmus Kristensen (RB Salzburg) £10m.

OUTS: None.

LEICESTER

NEW blood is needed at the King Power, with Chelsea’s 19-year-old England starlet Levi Colwill a top target to help cure their defensive woes.

PSV Eindhoven’s powerhouse midfielder Ibrahim Sangarre starred against them in Europe — but boss Brendan Rodgers faces a fight with a string of clubs to land him.

Meanwhile, Club Brugge forward Charles De Ketelaere remains on their wishlist and has the ability to fill the Foxes’ problem right-wing position.

INS: None.

OUTS: None.

LIVERPOOL

JURGEN KLOPP’S Reds did not score a goal in three cup finals.

And £85m-rated Benfica striker Darwin Nunez is understood to have agreed personal terms and would help fill the hole left by Sadio Mane if he joins Bayern Munich.

Boss Klopp has also invested wisely in Fulham superkid Fabio Carvalho, 19, as another attacking option and could still go for West Ham striker Jarrod Bowen as he looks to lay down a marker to their rivals ahead of the new season.

INS: Fabio Carvalho (Fulham) £5m plus £2.7m add-ons.

OUTS: Divock Origi, Loris Karius, Sheyi Ojo, Ben Woodburn (all released).

MAN CITY

THE champions have done some eye-catching business already with strike pair Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez arriving at the Etihad.

But Man City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak promised that is not the end of their spending.

Kalvin Phillips and Marc Cucurella are the most likely signings — with the likes of Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus being linked with moves away.

INS: Erling Haaland (Dortmund) £51.4m, Julian Alvarez (River Plate) £14m.

OUTS: Fernandinho (released).

MAN UTD

NEW boss Erik ten Hag is faced with a bigger summer than any of his predecessors post Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Dutchman wants a new centre-back, midfielder and striker for his rebuild.

After spending £1billion on players in the last nine years, there is not a bottomless pit of cash.

Yet United are set to shell out £200m with Ajax defender Jurrien Timber, Barcelona playmaker Frenkie de Jong and Victor Osimhen of Napoli among a long list of big-money targets.

INS: None.

OUTS: Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Edinson Cavani, Nemanja Matic, Juan Mata, Lee Grant (all released).

Left-back Matt Targett is in from Aston Villa after a stellar loan, with the club also confident French forward Hugo Ekitike, 19, will follow from Reims.

Lille’s Sven Botman remains their top centre-back target — leaving another forward, midfielder and defender on the wishlist.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Ivan Toney and Bayer Leverkusen ace Moussa Diaby remain targets.

INS: Matt Targett (Aston Villa) £12m.

OUTS: Isaac Hayden (Norwich) loan.

NOTTINGHAM FOREST

NEW BOYS Forest must decide whether to turn key loanees into permanent signings.

But Djed Spence, James Garner, Max Lowe, Philip Zinckernagel and Keinan Davis’ values have risen after ending Forest’s 23-year exile.

Boss Steve Cooper wants Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White, with a long-term replacement for skipper Lewis Grabban a must in attack.

Salernitana striker Milan Djuric is available on a free and remains on Cooper’s radar — as does New York City’s £10m-rated Argentine striker Taty Castellanos.

With goalkeeper Brice Samba’s future uncertain, Cooper could also offer Burnley’s Nick Pope a swift Prem return.

INS: None.

OUTS: None.

SOUTHAMPTON

FANS can expect a lot of comings and goings at St Mary’s — with the club wanting to add to every department on the pitch.

They are prioritising a keeper with Fraser Forster and Harry Lewis leaving and Willy Caballero’s future still unconfirmed.

So Saints are closing in on Manchester City keeper Gavin Bazunu for around £10m.

Elsewhere, Ralph Hasenhuttl needs another full-back after crocked Tino Livramento was ruled out until 2023.

A central defender is also on the summer agenda.

INS: None.

OUTS: Harry Lewis (Bradford) free, Fraser Forster (Tottenham) free.

TOTTENHAM

SPURS are ready to back Antonio Conte in a big way thanks to Champions League riches and owners ENIC pumping in a £150m cash boost.

At least six new faces will arrive with freebies Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster already signed up.

Loanees Dejan Kulusevski and Cristian Romero should join permanently.

A left-sided centre-back is a priority but a right wing-back, central midfielder and forward are also being targeted by Tottenham.

Harry Winks, Joe Rodon, Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso and Sergio Reguilon could be leaving.

INS: Fraser Forster (Southampton) free, Ivan Perisic (Inter Milan) free.

OUTS: Pierluigi Gollini (Atalanta).

WEST HAM

DAVID MOYES knows he cannot go another window without signing another striker — but he wants Hammers additions elsewhere, too.

The Scot has money to burn and is eyeing players who can hit the ground running for him.

A left-sided central defender is a must for boss Moyes and Rennes’ Nayef Aguerd is his top target.

Competition in midfield is also wanted with Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse being looked at, while Chelsea loanee Armando Broja and out-of-contract Jesse Lingard are seen as ideal signings.

INS: None.

OUTS: Mark Noble, Andriy Yarmolenko, Ryan Fredericks, David Martin (released).

WOLVES

THEIR topsy-turvy season ended on a downer — suggesting a major squad shake-up is needed if boss Bruno Lage is to survive.

Key midfielders Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho could follow Marcal and Romain Saiss out of the club, while Morgan Gibbs-White and Adama Traore’s futures are equally uncertain.

Lage wants to raid Benfica for Swiss striker Haris Seferovic — with Liverpool attacker Takumi Minamino an enticing option on loan.

Sporting Lisbon’s defensive midfielder Joao Palhinha could be set to replace Neves or Moutinho if they leave, while Sporting’s £30m-rated centre-back Goncalo Inacio is another one earmarked by the Molineux club.

INS: None.

OUTS: John Ruddy, Romain Saiss, Marcal (all released).
