Lauren has approved Arsenals £30million transfer move for Belgium star Yannick Carrasco but says Mario Gotze would be an ideal alternative.

Unai Emery is keen to bolster his options at the Emirates this summer but is said to only have around £40m to spend after the Gunners missed out on the Champions League.

That figure will increase if Emery is able to offload any unwanted players, however, with Shkodran Mustafi, Lucas Torreira and Mesut Ozil all being linked with summer moves.

Emery has made defensive reinforcements his priority but Arsenal Invincible Lauren says more attacking players are also needed to support Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.

The Gunners have been linked with a £30m deal for Belgian winger Carrasco and Lauren has approved the move, while insisting Gotze would also be welcome arrival in north London.

Arsenal need to look at players to support both Aubameyang and Lacazette as the team have been relying on them too much, Lauren told bwin.

This player could be from the Premier League or a European league, as long as they are given a pre-season to adapt to their team-mates.

Yannick Carrasco has been linked with the club; he is a very good player and is someone that that Emery and his staff will be considering.

Mario Gotze is also another very good player that has been linked with Arsenal and he could do a great job at replacing Ramsey in Arsenals midfield.

Lauren also assessed Emerys first season in charge of Arsenal. The Spaniard took over from legendary Frenchman Arsene Wenger last summer.

Unai Emery has been brilliant at improving Arsenal since he has been at the club, he has brought fight to Arsenal and they needed that, Lauren added.

Taking the team to the Europa League final, a final that Arsenal havent been in for a long time, and just missing out on the top four is a great achievement for his first season in England.
