Arsenal's dream signings for transfer deadline day

Published 2 Comments

Arsenal fans have been treated to an unusually productive and efficient transfer window this month with Arsene Wenger bringing in a defensive midfielder and a centre-back.

Krystian Bielik may have been earmarked as one for the future, but Gabriel Paulista has gone straight into the first-team set-up. The Brazilian defender didn't make it off the bench against Aston Villa on Sunday, but is expected to play a big role between now and the end of the season.

These are positive signings for Arsenal, who now have a strong looking squad and a favourable run in between now and the end of the season. But the transfer window isn't closed and Wenger still has the money to buy another star. Here are three stars who just possibly could join Arsenal before the deadline passes at 11pm tonight.

Morgan Schneiderlin - Southampton

It is hard to pick holes in an Arsenal team that demolished a Premier League rival 5-0 less than 24 hours ago but there is still concern over the lack of depth in the centre of midfield. To that end, Schneiderlin has been continually linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium in recent months.

The France international has been one of Southampton's star players this season and looks every bit the big presence the Gunners need in their midfield. The Daily Star says he has already agreed to a summer move, but a final push from Wenger could see the deal move forward.

Hugo Lloris - Tottenham Hotspur

Before we go any further, let's just point towards a keyword in the headline: 'dream'. The Gunners are reportedly interested in signing Hugo Lloris from their north London rivals with Wenger fed up with Wojciech Szczesny's continued failure to improve.

David Ospina has been impressive since taking the number one spot, but Lloris is certainly in a higher bracket than the Colombian. Imagine signing Tottenham's best player just days before the north London derby at White Hart Lane. Think of the outrage Tottenham fans would feel as he walked out in that psychedelic green Arsenal kit. Not only would Arsenal have a world-class goalkeeper, but they would have significant bragging rights over their most loathed rivals.

Luis Suarez - Barcelona

Olivier Giroud has been terrific since he returned from injury and Danny Welbeck has already won Arsenal fans over after his controversial move from Manchester United. If Arsenal want to improve their forward line, they need someone world-class.

The Sun reported that Wenger was keeping a close eye on Luis Suarez's situation at Barcelona, which is looking more and more precarious by the day. Andoni Zubizarreta was the main man behind bringing the striker from Liverpool, but he was sacked last month and there are now suggestions that Barcelona chiefs want the Uruguayan out.

Arsenal have tried and failed to sign him in the past and Wenger may jump at the chance to rectify one of his most public transfer failures.
