The players in the middle Wenger is targeting this summer.

It has already been a relatively busy summer of transfers for Arsenal with the arrival of four new players for a combined outlay of £66m, but a central midfielder remains a priority signing.
Here are the five candidates that manager Arsene Wenger has his eye on.
Lars Bender, Bayer Leverkusen
Probably the longest running target although interest in the Germany international from the Gunners appears to have waned in recent times, despite the fact Bender looks to be the ideal purchase.
This is because the 25-year-old is a committed defensive midfielder, who will happily sit in front of the back four and break up play and allow the more creative players to flourish.
