Today we saw for the first time this transfer window, Arsene Wenger splashing the cash on former Barcelona front man Alexis Sanchez - but many Gooners are still asking the question, who will he buy next?

Many names have been circling around the internet but in this article you can check out the players we may see at Arsenal next season.

Loic Remy:

This QPR player has been linked with Arsenal now for the past two seasons but it seems that Wenger is coy on bringing Remy to the Emirates in this transfer window.

It's obvious to many Arsenal fans and pundits alike that Giroud is not the right man to be leading the line up front for Arsenal, so bringing Remy to the club could be perfect as he seems to have all the traits of a good striker; he can score, pass, move and beat defenders with ease. 

Although Giroud has most of these traits some weaknesses let him down like his bad first touch and lack of pace adding more to the assumption that Giroud is not the right player to lead Arsenal up front. 

So bringing Remy in to replace Giroud as Arsenal's main striker seems like a sensible idea.

Also with the departure of Bendtner Arsenal only have two first team strikers in Yaya Sanogo and Giroud so it seems we will definitely see a new striker in to fill that hole.

Mathieu Debuchy:

With the recent announcement that Bacary Sagna has moved to Manchester City being made before the transfer window opened Arsene Wenger has been on the lookout for some replacements at right back and he may just have found the one he wants in another Frenchman.

Debuchy who currently plays for Newcastle is the perfect replacement for Sagna, he is a much more defensive right back then Sagna was who often left the right back position vulnerable when he was getting up the pitch playing a more attacking role so having someone that will not get forward as much is just what Arsenal need to tighten their defence.

Getting this player from Newcastle will cost Arsenal about £8 million but it would be money well  spent as Arsenal will pick up an experienced right back, and there aren't too many of them available at the moment in the transfer market so fans should consider themselves lucky that they will pick up such a good player to fill Sagna's boots.

Sami Khedira:

Although this transfer is a long shot if Arsenal capture this player they will surely be automatic title contenders next season, that is IF they get him.

It has been claimed recently that Khedira has turned down a new contract at current club Real Madrid as he wants to move elsewhere and rumour has it that, that elsewhere could be Arsenal.

Khedira alongside Ramsey would certainly be a mouth-watering partnership considering in front of them you have Ozil, Cazorla and Sanchez but will Wenger buy this player?

The main problem with this transfer is the wage demands of the player himself, his demands are believed to be in the region of £150,000 which is a number unheard of in the back offices at Arsenal. 

Until last year before Ozil Arsenal's highest paid player was Lukas Podolski making just over £100,000 so is it realistic to assume that Wenger will sign Khedira even after the transfer of Sanchez who is undoubtly making over £120,000?

I think he will. The board at Arsenal have been known for not giving players contracts excess of £100,000 turning most players away from the Emirates but they seem to be changing their tune and this is working out in the favour of Arsenal fans as they are seeing new big faces at the club, hence Sanchez and Ozil.

So although Arsenal have already made one huge signing expect in the coming days to hear more about this transfer.

It seems as though the 'dark days' at Arsenal are over, with news of Arsenal being one of the richest clubs in the world, new multi million pound sponsorship deals being announced and Arsenal's trophy drought coming to an end it really seems like this is the beginning of a new era at Arsenal.
