After failing to cement a regular first-team place under Jose Mouriho, Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema emerged as one of Arsenal's top summer targets. Although the ex-Lyon star would command a significant transfer fee, Wenger will be following his situation closely.
Fabregas has a good chance of returning to Barcelona this summer. While he might have the opportunity to finally land his dream move, it is clear that Wenger will do anything in his power to keep the player.
The Frenchman considers Fabregas to be amongst the best midfielders in the world and is determined to retain his services next year.
Although Nasri has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United, Wenger wants the playmaker at the Emirates next season. Contract negotiations recently stalled, but both sides are still trying to agree on a new deal.
Nasri was sensational for the Gunners last year, and Wenger will be adamant on keeping the French midfielder.
Arshavin's poor season ignited rumours of a return to Russia. While he suffered a significant dip in form last year, the diminutive playmaker could still be an impact player on the bench. Wenger is a huge admirer of Arshavin and does not seem likely to sell the player during the transfer window.
