The top five players linked with signing for Arsenal this week

Some world class players have been linked with signing for Arsenal over the past seven days.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is the unique position where if he feels he needs extra players in the transfer market, he can go out and get them.

Arsenal’s financial strength has been well documented and the profile of the club leads the Gunners to be linked with some very good players on a weekly basis.

Here are five of the best players linked with Arsenal moves over the past seven days.

Paul Pogba (Juventus)

Arsenal are reportedly a fresh rival to Manchester United and Chelsea, who both hold long term interest in the Frenchman.

Marco Reus (Borussia Dortmund)

Whenever there is speculation over Reus’ future, Arsenal are linked with him. The Daily Star claims the German side are getting ready for him to leave.

Morgan Schneiderlin (Southampton)

There was some brief hope for Arsenal earlier this week with reports that the Frenchman was stalling over a new deal with the Saints.

Lucas Silva (Cruzeiro)

Not a new name to appear on the list. Arsenal remain linked although Real Madrid are favourites to sign him.

Winston Reid (West Ham United)

If Arsenal want to sign Reid from the Hammers, they’ll have to stump up a £20 million fee, which is the price Sam Allardyce has put on his head.
