An Emirates Stadium shopping list of epic proportions.
Let’s start with the most fantastical, and given Arsenal’s cash-strapped attitude, unlikely transfer links.
Arguably in his best season for the Spanish club, Benzema has netted 10 league goals this year and formed a far more pivotal role in the Madrid attack.. Madrid would expect enough money to make it worth their while, which is not Wenger’s style.
Barcelona have recently announced a one-year contract extension for the Frenchman, possibly warding off potential suitors.
The German home-bird is likely to stay at his boyhood club for a long, long time. Even if he where to make the move, we all know what happened with Munich, right?
This lad is being head hunted by virtually every top premier league club, with Manchester City and their namesakes likely to throw a bigger wage at him, combined with a larger transfer fee makes it considerably unlikely. Not only this but the German consistently pledges his future with Dortmund.
Everybody in the premier league loves a good Kaka link, but it has to be said, he has spent the last two years glued to to football gossip columns, with links to all top 6 clubs coming at some stage or another, with no real progression. Even if he did make a premier league appearance, would it really be that memorable? He’s spent the last few years either injured or plagued with poor form.
