Arsenal are set for a major overhaul this summer in the transfer market that could see a wealth of talented players vacate North London, as question marks on the futures of Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lucas Perez, Jack Wilshere and others remain.
The Gunners will be active to replace any players that leave the Emirates Stadium though, and will seek to strengthen their squad in any case, and Arsene Wenger could look towards French football for targets yet again.
Arsenal have a strong history of boasting top-class French talent at the club with their ranks currently boasting the likes of Francis Coquelin, Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud, whilst previous representatives from Wenger’s home nation include Patrick Vieira and Thierry Henry.
On target from French football linked with a summer transfer to Arsenal is Lyon midfielder Corentin Tolisso, who can also play at right-back, but the Gunners will face rival interest from Barcelona in the 22-year-old.
Should Arsenal emerge victorious in their push for Tolisso’s signature though, they could bring other targets to North London from French football and these three players could follow Tolisso to the Gunners.
