CM - Declan Rice. Make no mistake about it, Declan Rice will return from EURO 2024 this summer with a burning desire to continue where he left off with Arsenal. He will feel hard-done-by to not lift the Premier League title last time out but he will be eager to kick-start the fight for his first in 2024/25. He may be joined by a new midfield partner...

CM - Xavi Simons. I do believe that playing alongside Martin Odegaard as an advanced midfielder is the best position for Xavi Simons. Both Simons and the Arsenal captain will have the freedom to drift off to help out on either wing, while providing excellent creativity to Kai Havertz. With Simons having the versatility to play on either wing, this will massively benefit Mikel Arteta too.

CM - Martin Odegaard. Norway do not compete in EURO 2024 this summer, so Martin Odegaard will have the whole summer to commit to improving Arsenal's chances next season. As the captain and somebody who was also loaned to Arsenal at one point, he will gladly facilitate Simons' arrival in the starting lineup.
