Whether or not it will be Arsene Wenger who is in charge of the transfer side of things for Arsenal Football Cl;ub this summer remains to be seen, as we are still none the wiser about what the Frenchman will decide to do at the end of this season.
Be it Wenger or a new manager in charge, though, you would expect it to be quite a busy summer for the Gunners after yet another challenge for the Premier League title slipped away and we are on the verge of an early exit from the Champions League at the same stage that we have seen Arsenal fail to get past for the last six years.
Even if we manage to persuade the two biggest names in the current squad to sign new contracts and stay in north London, the Arsenal fans will want Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil to be joined by some more top class players to give us a chance of actually winning a big trophy.
I would also assume that the Chilean striker and the German playmaker will be after some sort of assurances that the club is ambitious and will offer them a proper chance of top honours next season and one former Gunner Ray Parlor would love to see Arsenal go for the Man City striker Sergio Aguero, Metro reports.
There has been a lot of talk about him moving on this summer as he does not appear to have a great relationship with Pep Guardiola. Aguero is said to be keen on joining Real Madrid, according to The Sun, but their report also suggests that Madrid may not agree to meet his transfer fee and that City would prefer not to see the striker go tom a big rival for the Champions League which is their main target.
Whether they would be more keen to see him come to Arsenal is unclear, but yet another poor season in Europe should mean that they do not see us as a big threat to their European dreams. Could that help Arsenal to secure this huge transfer and will our club step it up to make this sort of big money signing?
