5 Summer Transfer Rumours Arsenal Fans Want to Come True

Arsenal are currently in the thick of a heated race for a spot in the top four, with just four games left and everything to play for.

The Gunners have been on a good run for the past few weeks and are in third place at the moment, but Arsene Wenger can't let that blind him from seeing that some areas of the squad need some serious improvement.

Despite the back four recently keeping clean sheets against Bayern Munich, Swansea, Everton and Fulham, the defense is far from fixed. After all, this is Arsenal—a team capable of self-destructing at any given time and defending like school girls.

Further up the pitch, there's still the need for a defensive midfield enforcer, something Arsenal have been missing since Patrick Vieira left the club in 2005. Wenger has plenty of central midfielders at his disposal, but none of them are quite built in that Vieira mold. Mikel Arteta has been asked to do a job there this season and has performed surprisingly well, with 3.3 tackles and 2.8 interceptions per game in the league (via WhoScored.com), but nonetheless, a traditional defensive midfielder is clearly needed.

Up front, bringing in some striking firepower is a must this summer. Olivier Giroud has had a decent first season in England but can be frustratingly wasteful at times, Theo Walcott seems better suited to the wings, and Lukas Podolski can't seem to get 90 minutes under his belt.

With Arsenal linked to countless players as usual, here are five summer transfer rumours Arsenal fans want to come true.
