Ok, so Arsenal have lost Adebayor and Toure but come on Arsenal fans, we need to trust Arsene Wenger to turn the Arsenal ship around, and I think I've realised how he could do so.

With Wenger saying that he isnt going to spend unwisely and he is going to spend money if a good oppotunity arrises, that for me sights 3 targets that Wenger and Arsenal are sighting.


No. 1

Brede Hangeland

After signing with fulham at the begining of last season brede has been a true tower and Rock at the heart of Fulhams defence.

He is stalling on a new contract and is clearly hinting he would leave Fulham for Arsenal if Wenger came calling.

If he came to the Emirates he would surely cure Arsenal's airrial abilitys and would be more then a great replacment for the departed Kolo Toure.

He is 28 and has great expirence from his first year in the Premier League and from previous clubs has expirence in Europe.

He would probebley set the Gunners back £5m-£9m and a contract of Plus £30.000 a week.

Possibility of signing Hangeland: 4/5


No. 2

Klass Jan Huntelaar

Huntelaar signed for Real Madrid only a season ago and has fallen down the pecking order at the Bernabou due to the arrival of the new big money signings.

Real Madrid are keen on selling him and Reports are that Arsenal are the front runners to capture his contract.

He is a proven goal scorer and would fit in well at Arsenal, not only would probebley score 25+ goals a season he would strike a great partnership with van Persie just as they have in the Dutch National team.

He is 25 years old and has expirence in Europian football and many call him the new Van Nisterooy, as he is a great poucher in the box.

He only got 20 Apperences with Madrid last season and yet he still scored eight goals.

If you want any more infor on Huntelaar the check out this article.

He would set Arsenal back around £15m-£17m with a contract of around £50.000 plus a week.

Possibility of signing for Arsenal: 4/5


No. 3

Patrick Vieira


I dont need to tell you that Vieira is an Arsenal Legend and reports are mounting that Vieira is on the verge of re-joining the Gunners.

He left Arsenal for Juventus for the sum of £13.5m and has since moved to Inter Milan.

He has been by Inter as a player they want to let go and is nearing the end of his contract.

Like Hangeland he would help Arsenals airrial ability and if he came to Arsenal im sure Wenger would place him as a holding Midfielder and would cover the defence.

In 279 apperences for Arsenal he scored 29 goals and with His france caps showing 107 and a recorded 6 goals his expirence speaks for itself.

He would set Arsenal back around £750.000 or even Free and his contract would most likely be £30.000 pay as you play.

Transfer possibility: 4/5


Surely I'm not the only one who thinks if these players came to Arsenal then success would be right round the corner.

What do other fans think? Come on Arsenal fans, what's your opinion? Do you think the players I've suggested are good or bad?

This may be a stupid question, but would us Gooners welcome back Patrick Vieira?
