Just how realistic are Arsenal transfer links with Draxler and Kalou?

Arsenal have been linked with a whole host of players over the course of this summer, from the likes of Real Madrid’s Angel Di Maria and Mesut Ozil, all the way down to some unknown French midfielder from Ligue 2 side Angers FC, but the recent rumours that stand out from the others are links for both Julian Draxler and Salomon Kalou.

Now firstly, the main suggested players still feature the quadruple of Real Madrid players we seem to have an interest in, in Karim Benzema, Mesut Ozil, Angel Di Maria and Iker Casillas. All would be fantastic signings and imagine if we brought all four into the club by the end of the window.

Wenger – Wilshere and Diaby return means Arsenal can’t get Gourcuff

Arsene Wenger thinks that Arsenal have too many midfielders already on board to consider bringing in Yoann Gourcuff from Lyon, despite the numerous rumours surrounding a possible January arrival of the talented playmaker.

Both Jack Wilshere and Abou Diaby are expected to be joining the squad by the end of January, and with Thomas Rosicky and Yossi Benayoun already on the bench trying to break into the Gunners first team there will be no room for another midfielder, no matter how good he is.

“We have choices in midfield,” Wenger said. “We have Diaby and Wilshere coming back so we have lots of people in there.
