Arsenal Transfers: 8 Players Wenger Must Sign

The Frenchman faces one of his most important transfer windows.

Arsenal are setting up for a mass exodus this summer, with as many as eight players heading for the exit door as Arsene Wenger looks to reshape his FA Cup-winning team.

That's according to the Daily Mail, anyway. It claims that the Frenchman is so desperate to land Monaco winger Thomas Lemar that he's prepared to pay a club-record £80m for his services, partly funded by a clear-out of some of his squad's dead-wood.

Olivier Giroud, Jack Wilshere and Kieran Gibbs are reportedly among those on the transfer list - but departures such as these would leave a considerable hole in the Arsenal roster.

Wenger has faced costly injury crises in each of the last few seasons, and going into the new season short of senior cover could seriously undermine his hopes of reclaiming the Premier League title that has eluded him for the last 13 years.

Selling eight players is an opportunity to reinforce the ranks with genuine quality - and here are eight that the club should consider taking the other way.
