Neven Subotic

The Serbian defender has been regularly linked with Arsenal this season given the troubles Borussia Dortmund have endured.

Subotic has helped his current employers to two league titles and a Champions League final in 2013. He could to be the ideal replacement for Per Mertesacker who seems to be losing momentum.

Marco Reus

Marco Reus, Subotic's Dortmund team mate, has been long admired by Arsene Wenger.

Although the purchases of the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in the past two years has made the German a less of a priority, however, never rule Arsenal out of this one

Reus did recently sign a new contract with Dortmund and, if Arsenal do make a move, they will likely face a stiff competition from Real Madrid and Manchester City.

Morgan Schneiderlin

The Southampton man should be a main priority as Arsenal are in need of a central midfielder., despite the emergence of Francis Coquelin.

The France international could be the right man at the right price with the Saints reportedly valuing him at £20 million. But Tottenham and Manchester United are amongst the clubs said to be interested in the player's signature.

Chris Smalling

A player that Arsene Wenger attempted to capture few years ago when Smalling was at Fulham. If the move happens this it could for a affordable price should he not agree a new contract.

However, the England international has won the trust of Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal of late and the player has admitted that he wants a future in Manchester.

Petr Cech

The Czech has been limited to only a certain amount of game time this season under Jose Mourinho due to the excellence of team mate Thibaut Courtois.

Furthermore, Cech has hinted at leaving Stamford Bridge after a decade of service. Although this may seem as a good news Arsenal, Chelsea would surely be unlikely to do business with a rival.

Charles Aranguiz

Relatively unknown to football fans in England however, Charles Aranguiz is an international teammate of Alexis Sanchez. And this perhaps one of the reason he has expressed an interest in joining the London outfit.

Currently playing his trade with Sport Club Internacional in Brazil, he could be up for a challenge with one of Europe's elite.
