Arsenal boss ready to splash £200m on these 5 players

Arsene wenger

A growing number of fans are calling for Arsene Wenger to leave Arsenal this summer but the Mirror claim he will sign a new deal and embark upon a £200m summer overhaul.

The newspaper says the expected sales of the likes of Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez, David Ospina, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Olivier Giroud and Lucas Perez will bolster Wenger’s transfer kitty to record levels.

With around £200m to spend, the newspaper says the Frenchman already has his targets lined-up as Wenger looks to bring a new goalkeeper, left-back, winger and two strikers to the club this summer.

The Mirror claim that Jordan Pickford is on Wenger’s radar after impressing at Sunderland this season. The 23-year-old has been superb between the sticks and the Black Cats would have been consigned to the Championship long ago if it wasn’t for him.

He lacks experience at the highest level so I think we’d see him come in as Petr Cech’s understudy for a season before taking over as No.1 and he should be available at a reasonable price with Sunderland heading for relegation.

Celtic’s Kieran Tierney is seemingly Wenger’s pick for the left-back spot as Kieran Gibbs is also expected to leave this summer after failing to hold down a regular place.

Tierney has developed in to a fine full-back at Celtic Park this season and at just 19-years-old, he would be a long-term replacement for Nacho Monreal at the Emirates.

Up front, Alexandre Lacazette is once again named by the Mirror as the man we want having previously been linked with a move to Arsenal for several years.

Lacazette is enjoying a superb campaign at Lyon where he’s plundered 30 goals in all competitions so far and it looks like we’re set to make another attempt to lure him to north London.

Perhaps a surprise name on the list is Wilfried Zaha with the newspaper claiming that Wenger is keen to sign the winger in order to give us some genuine width next season.

Zaha has been excellent since joining Crystal Palace in 2015 and has scored 6 goals as well as providing 11 assists in his 28 games this season so he looks to be finally fulfilling his potential.

The final player named by the Mirror is Moussa Dembele with Wenger supposedly joining half of Europe in the race to sign the Celtic hitman this summer.

Dembele has scored 32 goals for Brendan Rodgers’ side to help fire them to the SPL title and he’s almost certain to move on at the end of the season but we’ll face plenty of competition for his signature.

So it looks like we’re gearing up for a busy summer at the Emirates with the club ready to spend record sums to try and get us competitive again. However, the big question is whether Wenger is the right man to be spending it….

    If we are looking at players from Celtic, who let’s face it wouldn’t be a good Championship team in England, then we will be playing Championship football very very soon. Surely Arsenal have higher standards than buying players who only look good because they are in a one team league!!!!

    Why average players???

    The type of players my lovely Arsenal need are stars not average any more. We do not need players that will be happy if they finish in the tope 4, Rather, we want to see players that can always challenge for the title and win the UEFA Champions league. so i repeat WENGER, GAZIDIS, RAMSEY, COQUELIN, WALCOTT, OX, GABRIEL, GIROUD, WELBECK, GIBBS ALL OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT!!!

    This is completely fake news, any reasonable person will know that, there is no truth about selling all the players mentioned. Do not even take it serous, lets wait until end of the season.

    before any planing of transfer, board should call wenger quit and then settle Sanchez and ozil..after that all the already mentioned arsenal players should leave the club except Ramsey and opsina because if another MANAGER like Allegri or sampoli get this two players I think and hope two of them will do well believe ramsey and opsina are very good player check their statistics based on home country qualification….please wenger GO… GO… GO ..GO …GO .. GO GO GO GO … OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT OUT!

    Arsene has become a big problem for arsenal and I wondered what next for arsenal. I think he should just go after the summer because he is becoming weaker in reasoning by the day.
