Three games to go. Pretty amazing when you reflect on this season as an Arsenal fan. A horrendous summer, an even worse start to the season. At one point, it seemed Wenger’s reign was coming to a crash-and-burn ending.
But with three games left, Arsenal are in the driving seat for third place and guaranteed Champions League football (and its money). This crazy season still has some twists and turns in store, we can be sure of that. Still, Wenger has brought back the club for 17th place in September and deserves plaudits for this accomplishment.
Assuming that Arsenal can secure a top-three spot in the remaining games, then the next question is how this summer will play out. Reinforcements are needed, and some names (cough: Park) look set to leave.
Gooners love to speculate about the transfer window, always thinking this will be the year Wenger finally opens his purse strings. Here are the six most realistic targets for this summer window.
