It was a season where Arsenal missed out on a great opportunity. With Manchester United out of the title challenge, and Chelsea deeply missing a reliable striker, the Gunners had the chance to mount a serious title challenge. And while they led the Premier League for a total of 128 days, Wenger’s men eventually missed out by 7 points, settling for 4th place.

The introduction of Mesut Özil boosted the club greatly at the start of the season, but injuries to key players such as Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere hindered the Gunners.

But the French manager knows that a strong transfer window this summer could push the club over the final hurdle, and finally reclaim the Premier League title. They ended their trophy drought with victory in the FA Cup, and now it’s time to re-lift the league trophy.

Wenger was hoping Roma’s Alessandro Florenzi would help them do so, but Roma have turned down an enquiry from the Gunners, because they believe that the 23-year-old will be a key player in the Italian clubs’ future. So with Florenzi out of the picture, here are SIX alternatives that could come in and help Arsenal push for more success.
