Every season it seems Arsenal's squad is decimated by an injury crisis - and 2015/16 has proved no different.
The Gunners have suffered several injuries throughout the current campaign, proving that Arsene Wenger's side could do with some extra depth if they are to maintain their title bid.
With Kieran Gibbs frequently deputising on the wing when ultimately necessary, it's clear the flanks require recruitment, especially given that Aaron Ramsey has now shifted centrally in Santi Cazorla's absence. Here are three potential signings they could make.

1. Denis Cheryshev - Real Madrid
The Russian winger has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons this season. His inclusion in Los Blancos' recent Copa Del Rey bout led to the Spanish giants' removal from the competition after it was revealed that Cheryshev was ineligible to play.

It would be a sad way for his Madrid career to end, but with his lack of playing time at the club it seems an exit is necessary. The 25-year-old has impressed at times in Spain, particularly during a loan spell with Villareal last season, helping the club secure Europa League football.
Fast, skilful and with an eye for goal, Cheryshev could be the ideal candidate for Arsene Wenger's squad.
2. Karim Bellarabi - Bayer Leverkusen
Bellarabi has made quite a name for himself in the Bundesliga over recent seasons. A pacy winger with an abundance of skill, the German international has become a household name in the division.
However, the winger has struggled for form this season, scoring only two goals in all competitions so far. That being said, he is still a player with bags of talent whose direct style of play could potentially suit Arsenal's counter attacking football.
Leverkusen are used to selling their established stars and Bellarabi, if allowed to depart, would be a wise investment for Wenger to make. He's a player capable of destroying teams if utilised correctly - in 2014/15 he claimed 12 goals and nine assists in just 18 appearances.
3. Lucas Moura - Paris Saint-Germain
Perhaps the biggest name on the list, the Brazilian has struggled to make a significant impact at PSG this season leading to rumours of a move away from the Ligue 1 champions.
A player of undoubted class who has tortured opposing defences during his time in Paris, Moura has failed to nail down a permanent spot for PSG.
A transfer of this calibre would represent a huge coup for Wenger and would send out a message to the rest of the Premier League. His time with the French club may not have been the most enjoyable, but Moura is a hungry 23-year-old capable of becoming one of the best.
