Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is reportedly due a 100m war chest in the summer to add some much needed depth and quality to his side, and here are three players he needs to target.
3. Julian Draxler (Schalke, €30m)
Draxler is one of the most linked names as far as Arsenal are concerned and a move for the German international looks likely. He has been in great form for Schalke in the last couple of seasons and has emerged as one of the hottest prospects in world football. He has supposedly outgrown the Schalke side and is now ready to move on to bigger things, and Arsenal seems to be the right place for him.
Arsenal’s left flank has been their Achilles heel this season, and Draxler could slot in seamlessly on the left wing for the Gunners, allowing Santi Cazorla to move to a more central role if required. Draxler is also capable as playing as a second striker, and with Wenger rumored to be considering him as the next Robin van Persie, playing him as a striker is not out of the question.
