Arsenal transfer analysis: The players who could ensure the Gunners avoid yet another collapse next season
A look at those linked with a move to the Emirates this summer that might just turn the Gunners' fortunes around
The renaissance had been remarkable at Arsenal, from clinching a top four place on the final day of last season at the expense of their rivals to topping the Premier League for the first half of this campaign.
The recent collapse though, has been even more extraordinary with a total of 20 goals conceded against the other sides in the top five as their title hopes faded.
The likes of Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lukas Podolski have suffered long spells on the sidelines as Arsenal once again suffered injuries to key players at the wrong time.
Bacary Sagna, Thomas Vermaelen and Nicklas Bendtner are all set to depart the Emirates this summer with Arsene Wenger's squad already short in a number of positions.
The board and the manager may not be forgiven for missing another opportunity to address a number of issues during the summer transfer window.
Here, we guide you through the players that could ensure Arsenal don't collapse yet again next season...
