It's unlikely that Arsenal's starting XI will remain unchanged next season. Arsene Wenger has £70 million to spend on transfers this summer, per The Independent, and the Gunners have already been linked with several players.
But what if none of the deals go through? What if Arsenal's squad remains basically unchanged? How would Wenger pick his team?
Again, it's an unlikely scenario, but here's how I think Wenger would pick his first XI, based on a 4-2-3-1 system.
Goalkeeper: Wojciech Szczesny.
Szczesny retains his place largely because of a lack of real competition for the No. 1 role.
Defenders: Nacho Monreal, Laurent Koscielny, Per Mertesacker, Bacary Sagna.
Koscielny and Mertesacker became Wenger's first-choice central pairing during the run-in last season. Kieran Gibbs and Carl Jenkinson are further options at full-back.
Holding midfield: Aaron Ramsey, Mikel Arteta.
Attacking midfield: Santi Cazorla, Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott.
Assuming Wilshere and Cazorla are healthy, they should start. Wilshere could also move into holding midfield, pushing Cazorla into the central playmaking role to make room for Lukas Podolski on the left.
Striker: Olivier Giroud.
