5 Dream Arsenal Summer Transfers to Get Gunners Fans Excited

0 of 5

    Arsenal fans haven't had a lot to get excited about in the transfer window of late, but they can always dream of some exciting transfers.

    The Gunners are in the midst of the battle for fourth place and a spot in the Champions League next season.

    How they finish this season will certainly have a major impact on their ability to make big signings during the summer.

    In the meantime, Arsenal fans can certainly look at the rumours and hope that certain transfers become a reality.

    This isn't to say that these transfer are all realistic, but you never know.

    Here are five dream Arsenal summer transfers to get fans excited.

Stevan Jovetic

1 of 5

    Fiorentina forward Stevan Jovetic, has admitted interest in a move to Arsenal in recent times (via Sky Sports).

    Looking beyond the statistics—a decent-enough 12 goals and four assists in 26 Serie A games—Stevan Jovetic would provide quite a lot for the Gunners. 

    Jovetic is versatile enough to play on the wings, as a deep-lying forward or as an out-and-out striker.

    His ability on the ball, and vision off it, makes him a great player to join the Arsenal attack.

    At 23, he fits the bill of a prototypical Arsene Wenger signing, yet he has plenty of experience under his belt.

Etienne Capoue

    Etienne Capoue may be the most realistic target on this list, but he'd still be a dream summer transfer for Arsenal fans.

    The Gunners have been linked with a move for the French defensive midfielder (via the Express). 

    Arsenal's midfield is in need of some more steel to add to all the creativity, and Capoue would be a good option to fill that role.

    Capoue would become the Gunners' primary defensive midfielder and would help alleviate the Gunners' issues on set pieces with his height.

Edinson Cavani

    Arsenal fans would certainly be excited if Edinson Cavani were to join the club.

    According to the Metro, Cavani may be open to a move in the future, with Arsenal one of his possible destinations.

    The prolific Uruguayan striker has scored 30 goals in 38 games this season for Napoli.

    He's been one of the most consistent and productive forwards in Europe during the last few seasons and would certainly fill an area of need for the Gunners.

Mats Hummels

4 of 5

    Arsenal would face stiff competition to sign Mats Hummels according to Talksport.

    The Gunners defense has been a constant weak point, and the German defender would certainly go a long way to solving that.

    Hummels is a composed defender who is solid in the tackle and with his positioning.

    While this season hasn't been his, or Dortmund's, best in the last few years, he's also a pretty consistent player.

    Arsenal's back four needs all those attributes to improve, and Hummels is a dream summer transfer who could make that happen.

Marouane Fellaini

    Marouane Fellaini was linked (via the Daily Mail) with a move to Arsenal back in January. 

    The Belgian midfielder would be another great option to add some steel to the Gunners' midfield department.

    This season, he's been used as a deep-lying forward for Everton, and that's resulted in his most productive season in front of goal.

    Fellaini has stated in the past that he'd prefer to play as a central midfielder (via Sky Sports).

    That's where Arsenal would play him, but the club would also benefit from his threat on set pieces.
