The Wing Wizard: Juan Mata
The midfield being most heavily linked with a move to Arsenal is Valencia's 23-year-old Spanish winger Juan Mata.
If Samir Nasri does not respond well to having to stay a Gunner and Theo Walcott and Andrei Arshavin fail to produce more consistent and productive form, a move for Mata - a World Cup winner last year with Spain - could become crucial to Arsenal's efforts to win the Premier League.
If Wenger can find several players who can provide good service to lethal strike duo Gervinho and Robin Van Persie, there is no reason why Arsenal could not challenge Chelsea and both Manchester clubs for first place.
Although Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp confirmer after his team's 3-2 pre-season friendly victory over Brighton & Hove Albion yesterday that he likes Mata and had left it to chairman Daniel Levy to put in a bid to Valencia, Talksport's Graham Hunter insists that Arsenal is Mata's preferred destination.
If Arsenal can meet the Spanish club's €21 million ($ 30 million) valuation and agree personal terms with the player, they will be in pole position to land a footballer who has scored 33 goals in just 129 La Liga appearances, from midfield.
