Arsenal Transfers: Top 9 Transfer Targets for Arsene Wenger
Jonathan Newton/THE WASHINGTON POST

Arsène Wenger needs to sign a backup goalkeeper, a right-back and a left-back.

With Arsenal letting Manuel Almunia go and with Łukasz Fabiański wanting out, Wenger needs to sign a decent backup goalkeeper to keep Wojciech Szczęsny on his toes.

Promising shot-stopper Damian Martinez should be loaned out so he can experience regular senior football. 

Keep Bacary Sagna in your thoughts, as he’s undergoing the laborious process of rehabilitation. A right-back should be the No. 1 priority for Wenger. Playing Francis Coquelin there is an option, but he has world-class potential as a defensive midfielder.

A quality left-back is needed because André Santos is regularly caught out of position (though, he is a prolific ball-winner) and Kieran Gibbs is mediocre.

This article will break up the targets into three different signings: Ligue 1, foreign and U-25.   

Given that Olivier Giroud and Yann M'Vila are likely to join the Gunners, this article will not target centre-forwards or defensive midfielders.
