Well at last Arsenal have finally made a move in the transfer market and have brought in the 34 year-old centre-back Stephan Lichtsteiner who has arrived after winning 7 Serie A titles on the trot. But that can hardly be the end of our transfer business as we have to make a concerted effort to get back into the Champions League next season.
I’m going to pick my top Arsenal rumours that could make us back into contenders, and my Number One is the ex-Stoke midfielder Steven N’Zonzi. We desperately need a defensive midfielder and he has done the job perfectly for Unai Emery before at Sevilla, and his release clause is 40 million. That may seem a bit much but I think he would be perfect for us. By the way, the Premier League may be over for now, but with the World Cup coming up you can still get your footy fix every day.

Back to the rumours… I quite like the look of Sokratis as well. He is another one that is getting on a bit, but is big, strong and highly experienced at the top level. We need no nonsense defenders and he and Lichtsteiner could transform out back line. Most defenders can go on well into their thirties so I am hopeful we’ll get a few seasons out of him.
Next I would love a proper winger, and the rave reports about Martin Gelsons has got me excited. The Sporting Lisbon wide man is going into the shop window at the World Cup with Portugal so we may not have much chance of getting him but I can dream can’t I?
Another dream I have is Jean Michael Seri from Nice. With Jack Wilshere unlikely to return next season then we have room for one more top talented midfielder, and this is the one I want the most.
I honestly don’t think we will get more than four signings, and I think these ones above would make us into a real force next season. Who would you put in your top four incoming transfers?
