Which seven Arsenal players are holding Arsenal back?

Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas has told Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger that he needs to rid his side of up to seven weak squad members, while bringing in three big signings.

The Frenchman is believed to have been tasked with a fast and effective transfer window, with the board said to have been unhappy with the saga which ran until deadline day in the previous summer.

Campbell tells Arsenal boss which signings are needed

Sol Campbell has revealed who he believes could help Arsenal challenge for the title next season, in the belief that a top defender and top attacker need to be prioritised.

Our side has a hugely important weekend ahead, with a place in the top-four up for grabs for two of us, Man City and Liverpool.

Arsenal injury update with Koscielny and Xhaka set for tests

Arsenal could be without Granit Xhaka and Laurent Koscielny for their trip to take on Southampton tomorrow.

The Gunners need a strong finish to the season to have any hopes of climbing their way back inside the top-four, and in-turn qualify for next term’s Champions League competition, and face a tough task away to the Saints.

Arsenal rehaul needed, but where to start this summer?

Arsenal have endured a painful season this year, and while we can still save ourselves with a top four finish and the FA Cup, we have to be looking at major changes this summer. CrownBet’s FA Cup Futures have us as outsiders at 13/10 (2.3) to win the FA Cup (13/5 (3.6) to win inside 90 minutes), and we are currently relying on our rivals ahead of us in the league to drop points as we look to claw our way back inside the top four.

Arsenal transfer rumour round-up – Van Dijk, Dembele, Benzema, Kosc exit?

Arsenal’s campaign took a harsh blow on Sunday when losing to neighbours Tottenham, so we thought we’d distract ourselves by looking at possible incomings instead…

The Gunners are expected to have a busy summer, whether Arsene Wenger decides to extend his stay in North-London or not, and rumour has it the work has already begun.

Former Arsenal star believes back-three short-term fix?

Sol Campbell has claimed that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will revert back to his favoured four at the back, with a solid addition or two.

The Gunners recently reverted to the newly fashionable 3-4-2-1 formation, currently sported by Chelsea and Spurs who occupy the top two spots in the division, as well as being tried out by Manchester United, Everton and Man City this term.

Do Arsenal need to prioritise beating Chelsea to defensive signing?

Arsenal are being linked with a move to sign Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton this summer.

The centre-back is on Chelsea’s radar after a thoroughly impressive time with the Saints, and is believed to be viewed as the ideal type of defender for playing with three at the back.

Should Arsenal go for ‘best centre-half in Europe’?

There have been thousands of calls from Arsenal fans to secure a top holding midfielder and a marquee style super-striker this summer, but after the interest in Benedikt Howedes it seems probable that Wenger is also looking for a top class centre-back.
