With sources such as the Daily Mail claiming Arsene Wenger will have around £55 million to spend this summer on re-constructing his squad, we look at three players he should target. A word of warning though, don’t expect to see a dream team. We’re going for realistic targets here.
Position: Attacking Midfielder
Current Club: Ajax
A player that I think Arsenal should pursue the most is Danish youngster Christian Eriksen. Plying his trade at Ajax, Eriksen operates in the attacking midfield area and can play centrally or on the wings. His vision, short and long range passing abilities, technical ability and skills enable him to be the perfect candidate to replace Samir Nasri or Cesc Fabregas.
Although still relatively young at 20-years-old, Eriksen played 28 games on the way to winning the Eredivisie in 2010-11 and 4 cup games as he won the KNVB cup in 2009-10, so he has plenty of experience for one so young. His style would ensure he fits seamlessly in to the Arsenal squad quickly.
Position: Central Midfielder
Current Club: Basel
A fully fit Arsenal would have Wilshere, Arteta, Rosicky, Song, Diaby and Ramsey all competing for the midfield positions but we think we could do with one more in there as many of those players have had their fair share of injury problems. Xhaka is an all-round midfielder with good passing ability and at 6ft tall, he can be an imposing presence.
At 19-years-old he is another youngster but having played over 70 games for Basel, broken into the Swiss national team and played in the Champions League, he has a lot of experience already.
Current Club: Anderlecht
Up front is certainly a position that Arsenal need to strengthen, and Matias Suarez could be the answer. Van Persie has hardly had a chance to rest this season and his only back up is in the form of Park and Chamakh, neither of which have proven they are capable to stepping in when required.
Suarez, who plies his trade at Anderlecht, is good with both feet and has managed 16 goals and 11 assists so far this season in 27 games. Suarez can also play on the wings providing extra support for Van Persie and at the age of 23 could develop to become the main striker in the future.
So these are the three players i’d like to see Arsene go for this summer with his ‘war chest’. They are all attainable and should be within our budget both in terms of transfer fees and wages.
