Wenger is of course no stranger to raiding the French top tier for new additions and on his apparent summer wish-list are Lyon winger Nabil Fekir and AS Monaco centre-back Aymen Abdennour.

Gunners fans will be well aware of Abdennour, the Tunisian having played in both legs of AS Monaco’s Champions League clash with the north London side, but a move for the 25 year old seems hard to fathom given Wenger strengthened his central defensive options in January when he signed Gabriel Paulista from

21 year old wide-man Fakir has had a superb season with Lyon this term, netting 12 goals as well as being one of Ligue 1’s top assist makers.
