Having looked at replacements for Ryan Giggs, we look at the candidates to fill the boots of the Emirates hero.
Another summer of torment awaits Arsenal fans as Barcelona’s long-running attempt to sign Cesc Fabregas is set to continue.
Both sides are sure this deal will happen but the question is when.
Gunners supporters seem to be in two minds as to whether they want the 24-year-old to remian in North London, with some questioning whether is head is already at the Nou Camp.
One issue that concerns the faithful most is if a deal is made late in the transfer window it will not allow boss Arsene Wenger time to find a suitable replacement.
So we have given the Frenchman a hand in identifying 10 possible replacements for the pass master.
Yoann Gourcuff (Lyon) – age: 24
Highly-rated all over Europe and you can see why with a £17million price tag. He did not enjoy his best season at Lyon following his move from Bordeaux. Lyon will not let him go easily, but the chance to play under Wenger may be too good an opportunity to turn down.
