Gonzalo Higuain, Napoli

The former Real Madrid man had a price tag of 30million euros. However Arsenal failed to land him as Napoli worked fast to take him to Italy.

Wayne Rooney, Manchester United

The striker is however interested in Chelsea but Arsenal still have a small chance of landing the 27-year-old. The Red Devils don't want to sell their star but £50million could take Rooney to Arsenal as Manchester United are looking to re-buy Cristiano Ronaldo.

Julio Cesar, QPR

The Brazilian goalkeeper is needed at Arsenal because Wojciech Szczesny has communication problems with his defence.

Luis Suarez, Liverpool

The Uruguayan striker is keen to leave Liverpool. Arsenal earlier this summer saw two bids for Suarez rejected as Brendan Rodgers said the South American star is not for sale this summer.

He is understood to be available for £35million, but won't be sold to a domestic rival.

Karim Benzema, Real Madrid

Benzema is now a top target for Wenger. The French international does not want to leave the Santiago Bernabeu, but Real Madrid's chase for Suarez means they need funds for the deal to be closed.

Arsenal are preparing a £40million bid because they don't want to make the same mistake they did with Higuain.
