Arsenal: potential summer transfer targets

Robert Green
Arsenal have been in need of a goalkeeper ever since Jens Lehmann left in 2007. Not even bringing the German back in January could fix the problem. Penny-pincher Wenger may find some value in Robert Green. The West Ham stopper is a free agent after running down his contract at Upton Park. But if he is willing to spend on a keeper he could do worse than Maarten Stekelenburg of Ajax. The Dutch stopper is stalling on a new contract but has intimated a desire to join Manchester United. Alternatively or in addition to a new keeper, Jens Lehmann may stay on.

Arsenal extended their ongoing hunt for a trophy to another year after an all too familiar collapse at the latter stages of last season.

Arsene Wenger's reliance on youth has come under scrutiny like never before, with some fans even calling for the Frenchman to go. The Arsenal manager has shown signs that a change of tact may be needed which could signal some significant summer signings. The board have also signalled a likelihood of new arrivals, meaning a rare busy summer could be on the cards at the Emirates.

Here, we take a look at the players that have been cropping up on the rumour mill both in the press and online, linked with a move to Arsenal.
