Arsenal plan major squad overhaul

Following what is likely to be yet another trophy-less season for Arsenal, the club chiefs are planning a major squad overhaul in the summer.

Arsene Wenger looks to stay on at Arsenal bench despite failing to bring any silverware to the club over the last six years and he has been given the go ahead to rebuild the squad for next season.

According to Daily Mail, Arsene Wenger plans to get rid of Andrei Arshavin, Gael Clichy and Nicklas Bendtner as he wants to free up space for new signings.

The Frenchman is prepared to listen for offers for Emmanuel Eboue, Tomas Rosicky, Denilson, Abou Diaby and Manuel Almunia as well, hoping to raise enough cash for several big name signings.

Le Boss is reportedly ready to make a turnaround in his transfer policy and finally splash the cash on big name signings, which is the main reason for the planned clearout.

On the other hand, Arsenal are keeping tabs on Leighton Baines, Eden Hazard, Manuel Neuer and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, among others, with none of the Gunners’ transfer targets likely to come cheap.

Simple as this. If Arsenal do not spend money this summer, which is likely the case, they won’t be winning any trophies next year. I give Wenger 1 more year, even though it has been one too many. The biggest downside of their season was losing Vermaelen to injury. Though Djourou did well, he doesn’t have that fire that Vermaelen does. The two biggest things they need: a new left back (let’s face it, Clichy is awful) and a new keeper. If they can, a big strong centre back, because by the looks of it, Koscielny isn’t really adapting to… Read more »

Arsenal has to change goalkeepers,defenders and forward players.No sharp shooters for goals.New Emirates Stadium has not earned a silverware since the opening year.

I think Cesc should be allowed to leave. Persuade Nasri to stay and fill that gap. then buy a good experienced holding midfielder, a CB and wingbacks. Sagna is good but needs someone to give him a good run for his money, not Eboue. Can also do with another goalkeeper for good cover. then there is also need for someone to help Van Persie upfront. Sell Bendtner.
