Arsenal finally ended their nine-year wait for a trophy by landing the FA Cup this weekend. The immediate aftermath has seen confirmation from Arsene Wenger that he’s set to stay on into next season (and the two seasons following), while reports have added to that by suggesting the Frenchman is set to be handed a transfer budget in excess of £100million.
Many believe that Arsenal must spend this summer in order to ride the wave of this trophy win, with a host of big names across the continent being linked with a move to north London.
Wenger is said to have identified a striker and holding midfielder as his prime areas of address this summer. Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema and Bayer Leverkusen’s Lars Bender have been linked.
But if the club are to build on this trophy success, they’ll need additions all over the pitch. So with that in mind, here are SIX players who could follow Benzema and Bender to Arsenal.
