Arsenal finally clinched a piece of silverware last weekend with the FA Cup final victory over Hull City, and despite watching their title hopes fade in the second half of the season, Gunners fans are now optimistic that there is success on the horizon once again.
Manager Arsene Wenger now has a critical summer ahead of him, as Arsenal must strengthen in a bid to continue winning trophies. There is money to spend at the Emirates Stadium, and one of the primary areas that must be considered in this summer's transfer market is right back, where long-term incumbent Bacary Sagna is poised to leave the club upon the expiration of his contract.
A number of players have already been linked with moves to Arsenal to replace Sagna, with no player suggested quite as much as Toulouse's Ivory Coast international Serge Aurier, who seems to be the player of choice for Wenger, but in the January transfer window, it was Eintracht Frankfurt's Jung who was the hot name.
Even last month, Jung was thought to be a major target for Wenger, but you can now cross his name off the shopping list, as the 23-year-old is now poised for a switch to Bundesliga rivals Wolfsburg - for a stunning bargain at just €2.5m, which was his reported release clause.

That Arsenal were seemingly willing to allow Jung to move on without even activating his release clause would suggest that Wenger has set his sights on another target - which, at this point, appears to be Aurier.
