How Arsene Wenger will spend £85m in this summer's transfer window


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has identified what is missing for the Gunners to challenge for important trophies.

After yet another campaign where the Gunners failed to challenge for the title, the Frenchman is determined to strengthen his squad starting with Petr Cech in goal.

The Chelsea goalkeeper lost his place after the arrival of Thibaut Courtois but is still considered by many as one of the best goalkeepers in Europe.

For the offensive department, the reigning FA Cup champions are ready to make a move for Porto's Jackson Martinez, Juventus' Arturo Vidal and Southampton's Morgan Schneiderlin.

But what about the defence?

Much to the disappointment of many Arsenal fans, it seems the Frenchman will again fail to sign important players in the defensive department.

The Gunners conceded 36 goals in the Premier League this season and twice conceded three goals at home in the Champions League, including a 1-3 defeat against Monaco described by many as a "nightmare".

They are rumoured to be interested in Wolfsburg's Ricardo Rodriguez but Manchester United are favourites to sign the 22-year-old.
