AS Monaco v Juventus - UEFA Champions League Semi Final: First Leg

Despite numerous attempts over the summer, it seems like Monaco are holding firm to their promise that they will not be selling Thomas Lemar to Arsenal this summer. That still leaves an attacking void that needs to be filled by someone this summer or Gunners fans will have to prepare for another year of Theo Walcott being inconsistent.

So, with the French international out of the picture, who else can Arsene Wenger turn to? Who can complement the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette in Arsenal’s attacking front? Here’s a look at five alternatives that they should look to lure to the Emirates Stadium.

#5 Nabil Fekir

Juventus v Olympique Lyonnais - UEFA Champions League

While Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas would like Arsene Wenger not to steal another of his prized assets this summer, Nabil Fekir could be the perfect foil for his attacking quartet.

A dazzling runner with quick feet and an eye for goal, the Frenchman has shown in the past that he can be a real threat in the final third. It would be a dream to have Ozil playing behind a triplet that is always looking to make clever runs and find attacking positions.

He’s not hit the dizzying heights he had a few years ago due to injury but now back to full fitness, he could be worth the gamble for a modest fee, at least by today’s standards. His history of being hurt often could hold them back from fully committing but he’s the kind of player that would make them exciting again.
