Arsenal FC: Top 15 targets for Arsene Wenger to consider this summer transfer window – Part 1
As the 2010-11 season heads towards it conclusion, Arsenal’s aspiration to acquire the league title begins to fade, ultimately ensuring a sixth successive trophy-less season. The lack of silverware has propelled Arsene Wenger to make some radical changes
to the English squad in the summer transfer window of 2011. The French manager has lately been criticized due to his inactive position in the transfer windows, considering the trophy-drought of the North London giants.
The Gunners tactician has ample funds to hire some quality football players, which could aid in boosting the title hopes for the 2011-12 season. Wenger is looking forward to offload some of the out-of-form players, which may include Nicklas Bendtner, Andrei
Arshavin, Gael Clichy, Emmanuel Eboue, Denilson and Manuel Almunia. Moreover, a myriad number of young players could be on a move to the English side, ready to make their first team debut the next season.
Here are the 15 top targets Arsene Wenger must consider, in order to reinstate Arsenal’s diminishing position in the football arena.
Pepe Reina
José Manuel Pepe Reina Páez is a professional football player from Madrid, Spain. He is currently giving his valuable services to the English Premier League club, Liverpool. Deployed as a goalkeeper, Reina has been a part of the Spain national football team
since 2005. The Spaniard is held in the highest regard by the Reds. He is the second vice-captain for Liverpool in the absence of Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher.
The 28-year-old has been a consistent force for Liverpool since 2005. He has made 215 appearances for the side so far, acquiring several gloveman awards. Reina has been the most sought-after player by Wenger for long. He is one of the best keepers in the
world and a price tag worth £13-18 million should be enough to buy him in the transfer market.
Connor Wickham 
Connor Wickham is an English professional football player, currently serving the Championship side Ipswich Town. He holds the position as a striker on the pitch. Born in Hereford, England, Wickham started his professional football career with the Reading
youth club. He played for the club for four solid years, before becoming a part of the Ipswich Town youth structure in 2006.
In 2009, the 18-year-old was promoted to the Ipswich Town senior team, where he made his full professional debut in April. Despite his young age, Wickham has acquired a myriad number of accolades. He holds the honor of netting the winning goal in the 2010
UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship Final. His scintillating performances on the pitch have attracted a horde of clubs from all across the globe.
Wenger has been greatly linked with a move for Wickham this year. However, Ipswich Town are determined to hold onto their most prized asset and have labeled him with a hefty price tag of £10-12 million.
Philippe Mexès 
Philippe Mexès, born 30 March 1982 in Toulouse, France, is professional football player. The 29-year-old plays for the Italian Serie A side, Milan and the French national team as a centre back.
