Today Arsenal completed the signing of Chambers – now Arsenal will be looking to move on and target their next signings for the season.
With the likes of Khedira, Bender, Remy, Schneiderlin and Casillas all linked with a move to the Emirates, fans will be continuing to speculate as to who will be next to join Sanchez, Debuchy, Ospina and Chambers.
Sami Khedira has been the biggest name to be linked with a move to Arsenal and the rumours aren’t going away. The German midfielder is said to be leaving Real Madrid this summer after rejecting a 2-year-deal from the Spanish giants and has continually been linked with Arsenal. With a space in the Gunners midfield for someone like Khedira, Arsenal fans will be holding out for another signing in the centre of the park.
If Khedira’s move should fail, Arsenal have been suggested to have enquired about French midfielder, Morgan Schneiderlin; a robust midfielder who can dominate in the middle. With similar qualities to Patrick Vieira, Schneiderlin would give Arsenal the presence in midfield to muscle out their opponents whilst maintaining their free-flowing style of football.
Wenger is evidently doing his business early to avoid the rush and disapointment of transfer deadline day where deals are broken down due to time constraints.
Gunners fans should be delighted with their sides dealings thus far, but know that their work is not yet over.
Arsenal will be sure to bring in another midfielder and potentially a striker to join Giroud, Sanchez and Sanogo.
Could Remy be that man?
After his move to Liverpool broke down for undisclosed reasons, Remy is still on the books at QPR with Liverpool ready to leave the striker and move on. If the deal was broken down for other reasons than the medical; Arsenal may be ready to place a bid for the striker who bagged 14 goals last season for Newcastle.
Blessed with pace and power, Remy would accompany Giroud well with Sanchez able to play in the hole.
Arsenal will need a new striker in case injuries or suspensions take their toll and Remy could be the perfect fit.
