Five Players Arsenal Fans Want the Gunners to Buy and the Five Players They Are Likely to Sign

Emirates Stadium side’s realistic and unrealistic transfer targets.

Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is repeatedly reported to have been handed a massive transfer war-chest, up to as much as £70m and with the North London club likely to offload a number of players considered ‘deadwood’ the North London club should have funds to make significant moves in the transfer market but the simple fact is that the Gunners boss is unlikely to spend money just for the sake of it.

In all likelihood the Frenchman will elect to scout heavily, looking for players he feels are a good fit for the club and are perhaps more likely to accept the club’s current wage structure. There may be occasions that Arsenal do genuinely attempt to sign a big-name player but could perhaps fail to do so due to the fact that after eight seasons without silverware and a lengthy lean spell it may just prove very tricky to convince high-profile players to move to the Emirates Stadium.

Below are a list of players Arsenal supporters would like to see join the club followed by a player of a similar position that they are more likely to end up signing this summer.

UNLIKELY

Higuain 21m

Gonzalo Higuain (Real Madrid)

Arsenal are said to be keen on the Argentine but it’s a move that most Gunners fans would be surprised to see occur. Any successful bid for the 25 year old would entail Wenger forking out a club record fee and would also have to see the Real Madrid man offered a wage deal far in excess of the Emirates Stadium side’s current highest earners.

Higuain does seem likely to leave the Bernabeu and with 122 goals in his seven seasons at the Spanish giants he is clearly a more than capable striker, but a move to join the North London club just doesn’t seem realistic.

REALISTIC

Loic Remy

Loic Remy (QPR)

Long term Wenger target who can be picked up ‘on the cheap’ as the QPR man has a low release clause that came into operation once the Loftus Road side were relegated.

Proven himself at Premier League level, finishing last term as the Super Hoops top scorer despite only arriving in January, and a player who could well be on his way to Arsenal.

Problem being that he is not an improvement on the likes of Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud and as such not a signing that would provide anything other than strength in depth.
