With little over a month to go, it will be interesting to see who else we sign, as Gazidis has stated that there will be more signings.
It appears that Torreira is on his way after the Wolrd Cup.
The positions that seem to be targets to improve are:
CB; Possibly Mustafi out and a replacement signed.
LB: Reports that Montreal may be sold and a replacement signed.
Wide attacking player: to be signed.
Creative midfield player to be signed.
Thoughts?

Torreira looks a good young player in an area we need depth for sure.

Considering we have already brought in 3 players, are likely to confirm a fourth and have room for two more in the squad list (assuming a GK and Lucas Perez are moved on) , I would be surprised if we looked to turnover players in areas where they can do a job for us. If Mustafi really wants to leave perhaps he'll go, but he is experienced in the Prem, and replacing him at a loss with a relatively unproven 22-year old in Soyuncu would be a risk (he certainly looks to have potential, but has a mistake in him at his age) .

The Monreal rumours seem nuts, he proved last season he is fit enough and we have Kolasinac also to rotate. Moving him on for age concerns would be a little hypocritical considering Lichtsteiner as depth/ rotation on the other side is two years his senior.

We could do with depth in central midfield (beyond Torreira) and a young attacking player with potential. Still surprised Jack has been allowed to leave without a sensible replacement lined up (not least given the home grown quotas) .

Mustafi premier league experience has been almost all poor so neither he or we have anything to loose by moving on from each other.
Gabriel was far better than Mustafi for us in my opinion.

Agree 62 regarding Gabriel, thought he was useful and a lot of games I saw he was always covering for Mert or Chambers . If Mustafi is not moved on I am hoping the new atmosphere motivates him and he plays like a 35mill player, he definitely fell out with Wenger over something COYG.

Mustaffi has the tools but i'm not sure he has it between the ears.

In parts of games Mustafi has looked awesome making fantastic tackles but in the vast majority he has looked deviod of awareness and most notably personal responsibility preferring to blame officials and team mates for his mistakes.
Can you train that out of him? I'm not sure.

When Mustafi first arrived didn’t we go something like 17 games unbeaten? He and Kos were solid for the first half of that season. He certainly has it in him to be one of our starting CBs, Emery will get the best out of him.

06 Jul 2018 13:31:10
He had a 22-game unbeaten streak upon arrival. (To be fair to him his unbeaten ratio is still over 70% of games played in the prem, which is none too shabby) . Certainly has the talent in him to be a great defender.
