Four names have been on Arsenal fans' lips over the past week. Four names that could change Arsenal Football Club. Four names that could finally end the Gunners' trophy drought.

The four names also play for Real Madrid. Iker Casillas, Angel Di Maria, Mesut Ozil and Karim Benzema have all been heavily linked with Arsenal.

Real Madrid are looking to sell to fund moves for both Gareth Bale and striker Luis Suarez - both attacking player showing they were both at the top level last season.

Bale is set for a world record deal which means Madrid will want to also sell players to have back up funds.

Arsenal could easily fit these players into their current squad and with the Real Madrid starlets being so used to top level football and familiar with the smell of silverware, the only person who is stopping the sensational moves is the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger himself.

It wasn't the best of starts for Arsenal in the Premier League losing 3-1 at home to Aston Villa conceding two penalties and a poor performance by their keeper.

Casillas is extremely unsettled at the Bernabéu and would easily replace Arsenal's current issues. Strikers should feel that once they've got past the defence they also have the task of scoring against the keeper which all top teams have and Arsenal lack which is why the trophy success isn't the best over the last eight years.

There are expectation with a club like Arsenal and Arsene Wenger has to adapt his ways in order to fit in with the modern game. This means spending big on players and quickly before any other team can get in before them.

Benzema is the next name proposed for a move to the Emirates. This signing would see a French link up front with Olivier Giroud finding his goal scoring form early on this season.

Together Arsenal would produce a great deal of goals especially with Ozil and Di Maria providing chances along with a wide selection of a quality midfield including Santi Cazorla and Jack Wilshere.

The Real Madrid link up would majorly improve the Arsenal squad and will boost their chances of winning something.

Arsenal supposedly started the transfer window with £70million to spend and the sales of Gervinho and Vito Mannone would boost the budget up to around £80million.

And with a number of Arsenal players being released leaves the wage budget at £400,000 per week which would cover all four of the Real Madrid star's expectations.

It is proposed that Casillas would cost the Gunners just £15million after he was put on the bench for most of the season.

Di Maria is valued at £24million and Benzema is worth around £27million, but it is rumoured that Arsenal will submit a £40million bid to seal the two players providing funds for a move for Luis Suarez for Real Madrid.

Finally, Ozil is valued at £35million and has also sparked some interest form Manchester United.

Overall this will cost Arsenal £90million if they were to land these players for these prices. However, Arsenal have a good enough midfield already and may choose between Ozil and Di Maria to save some funds and then look into a bid for Ashley Williams or Mats Hummels to strengthen up at the back .
