Emirates boss targets defensive pair.
Arsene Wenger hopes to secure the signing of French international pair Steve Mandanda and Philippe Mexes this summer. The Arsenal boss is looking for defensive reinforcements to help improve his back line and is ready to spend big to bring the duo to the Emirates.
The Emirates manager is desperate for a new keeper having seen Manuel Almunia and Lukasz Fabianski struggle this season. The club also has a plethora of aging defenders with the likes of William Gallas, Sol Campbell and Mikel Silvestre all potential exit bound players.
Both Roma defender Mexes and Marseille keeper Mandanda are hugely experienced and are known to be players Wenger admires so could be just what the north London club is looking for. The Arsenal boss has been promised a large cash injection to help improve his squad and a move for these two could well help the club push themselves back into the title picture.
