Another one of our delicious little lists that create debate and today we target Arsenal and their prospects in the transfer market. Arsene Wenger the Arsenal boss has already stated that the Gunners require some maturity in the team and he is almost certain to bring in some fresh experienced blood to The Emirate this summer and while it is easy to draw up a list of teenage sensations linked with Arsene Wenger’s men it is not so easy to link five English players with Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger has hardly had the biggest squad of English players in his time at Arsenal and outside Theo Walcott and good old Ashley Cole it is hard to name too many players that have been capped by England while playing for Arsenal, well not recently anyway.
Therefore this is a list of five English players that have been linked with Arsenal that could in theory turn out for the England national team.
As usual if you disagree that’s fine, all you have to do is create your own list in the comments box below.
Five English players linked with Arsenal
Cole will soon be available on a free transfer and Arsenal have been linked with the England International on more than one occasion, not sure he would fit in that well at The Emirates but if anyone can get the best out of Cole it would be Wenger.
Bolton’s tall defender has been linked with Arsenal numerous times this season already and is tipped as a future England star, would Wenger really go for Cahill, not so sure.
Manchester City’s number two currently on loan at Birmingham has been touted as the next Arsenal number one, they could do a lot worse, in fact they do, they have Almunia and Fabianski.
The young Everton midfielder has been linked with Arsenal many times already but unless the player stamps his feet and chucks his dummy out of the pram there is very little chance that David Moyes will authorise a transfer to Arsenal,
West Ham midfield general has been linked with Arsenal only recently and the truth be told Arsenal could do a lot worse than sign Parker, he would at least add some steal to the midfield, Arsenal would no longer be easy targets for rough defenders and Parker would bring a certain amount of protection to the likes of Van Persie and Fabregas.
Ok that’s the five English players that Arsenal could end up purchasing, not all obviously, but one or two is a very big possibility.
