The top five players linked with signing for Arsenal this week - Insigne, Alderweireld and more

Arsenal continue to be linked with several top players in the transfer market.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger refused to rule out the possibility of further transfer signings yesterday as he took his pre-match press conference ahead of the club’s trip to Everton this weekend.

The Frenchman has done good work in the transfer market already this summer but the Gunners are still short in one or two positions with calls for a centre forward and a defensive midfielder to link up with the side.

We’ve taken a look at five of the best names to be linked with signing for Arsenal this past week.

Sami Khedira (Real Madrid)

Khedira’s rejection of a new contract at Real Madrid has created the very realistic suggestion that he could finally complete a move to Arsenal. The Gunners tried to do a deal earlier in the summer, but nothing materialised as Los Blancos wanted the chance to try and keep him.

Marco Reus (Borussia Dortmund)

Barcelona being banned for the next two transfer windows has created speculation they could try and sign Marco Reus before September 1. That has created the idea that clubs interested in him, Arsenal being one of them, could try and swoop before the end of this current window.

Lorenzo Insigne (Napoli)

The talented young striker has been inconsistently linked with Arsenal throughout the summer. The latest reports suggest that the Serie A side could be open to doing a deal for him after his wife attacked Rafa Benitez’s club. He’s valued at around £17 million which Arsenal would be able to afford.

Toby Alderweireld (Atletico Madrid)

Atletico Madrid have done plenty of business this summer and they could be set to do more if Arsenal move to sign the Belgian defender over the next week and a half. Arsenal could use another body at the back of their team and Alderweireld would be a quality signing.

Winston Reid (West Ham United)

The versatile Hammers defending is perhaps one of the more surprising players to be linked with the club this past week. The Mirror suggests Arsene Wenger has had his eye on the 26-year-old for some time following consistent performances in the Premier League.
