Realistic starting XI for Arsenal next season?

Arsenal have shown a consistency and class this season but have once again illustrated that they still aren’t able to beat the very top teams in Europe and at home.

They failed in Europe against Bayern Munich and it looked like men against boys for a lot of the time in the big games in The Premier League. In particular, Liverpool and Chelsea seemed more powerful than Arsenal in the league games they played. More steely when it came to the crunch.

With The Emirates build now water under the bridge Arsenal are surely in apposition to spend big and Arsene Wenger must fancy breaking with tradition and really enjoying himself in the transfer market this summer.

It’s time to start spending a bit more freely – especially if he really wants to bring some serious silverware back to the club.

And we actually think that they will splurge this summer. We expect to see at least a couple of really good strikers is coming into the summer. Loic Remy would be a great addition and reports continue to smoulder about Karim Benzema joining the club. Those two would sort out the striking department no end.

Apart from the Arsenal could really do with a top quality defensive midfielder and perhaps another right back if, as expected, Sagna leaves the club.

Arsene Wenger might also have a punt on a new goalkeeper as Flappyhandski looks like another possible departure.

So this is how we think after might line up for the first game next season – fitness permitting of course. No starting place for Ozil, Giroud, Arteta or Oxlade-Chamberlain in what is beginning to resemble an exceedingly strong squad. Let’s have your thoughts Arsenal fans.

Arsenal – Casillas, Milner, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs, Bender, Wilshere, Ramsey, Cazorla, Walcott, Benzema
