The season will come to a close in a few months and with Arsenal, they are constantly linked with players each year.
The Gunners will no doubt want to be challenging for the league next season and so, we’ll take a look at three of their potential targets this summer and the likeliness of it happening.
The French midfielder wanted a move away from Southampton last summer but was eventually convinced to stay. It looks like the decision was vindicated as the Saints are currently 3rd in the Premier League with just a few months of the season remaining.
Whether they can remain there is another question and with reports of Schneiderlin wanting a move to another club even if Southampton finish in the top four, Arsenal wouldn’t do too shabby to go for the Frenchman.
They’d offer higher wages, more consistency in the Premier League and in the Champions League and more potential honours.
Francis Coquelin has impressed recently and is in line to receive a new contract but it would be very hard for Arsene Wenger to not approach Schneiderlin especially if he was available and pressing for the move.
Likeliness of signing: 6.5/10
Arsenal have been linked with the talented German even before he moved to Borussia Dortmund and you can bet your bottom dollar, he’ll be linked again this summer.
Dortmund are currently struggling in the Bundesliga and barring a miracle, won’t be making the Champions League. Along with this, Reus has a reported release clause that comes into effect this summer allowing him to leave the club if another club pays just £20 million for his services – a bargain.
Reus in the past has mentioned how he was a fan of Arsenal and if he were to join the Gunners, who could doubt their title chances next season. It seems unlikely that Bayern will sign him and with Chelsea signing Juan Cuadrado, Arsenal may have their best chance yet.

The young 21-year-old central defender was linked with Arsenal throughout the January window before they eventually signed Gabriel – and the Gunners could go after him again this summer.
With Per Mertesacker ageing and his performances regressing, Arsenal could sign yet another British player to add to their core who would be in line for a starting place in the future.
The Ipswich defender was honoured to be linked with Arsenal last month and can also play at left-back, offering versatility.
