With the fantastic signing of Granit Xhaka we take a look at what a successful summer for Arsenal would look like in the transfer market. Romours are flying round but who are the players capable of improving the team and who is all just hot air from the papers. Will any of the players make it on to the top 5 Arsenal Premier league signings? Read them here! (via @5besttransfers).
3 Potential Arsenal summer signings
Mario Gotze - Personally I'm not buying two things - 1, Gotze wants to stay at Bayern where he's hardly getting a game and 2, that he'd go to Liverpool just to play under Klopp again. I have to remind myself that Gotze is still just 24 (as of 3rd of June) and he still has lots of years left at the top level.
Gotze is the kind of player that would fit perfectly at Arsenal with his fluid style of play. It maybe as an a attacking midfielder rather than as a "false 9" like he plays for Germany currently but he's of the mould of player Arsene Wenger likes.
Gonzalo Higuain - Okay so I could be dreaming here but if we're talking a successful summer at Arsenal a big name striker has to be signed. Its looking increasingly likely that Jamie Vardy will opt to stay at champions Leicester so a top quality striker is still needed (as the main man with Giroud as a back up). Higuain will not come cheap though and at 28 is a little older than you'd like for a big money signing with no Premier League experience but I think he's worth the risk. He's scored goals everywhere he's been and I could see him being a bit hit in the current Arsenal team.
N'Golo Kante - It's well known that Kante has a £20 million buy out clause in his contract at Leicester and the more he plays at the Euros the better value thats looking. I can see a scramble for his signature once the tournament is over and he's the man to act as defensive enforcer for the gunners in my opinion.
Along with these signings I'd expect to see a centre back come in and maybe a left back as cover as well as a couple of youngsters joining the squad.
