Saido Mane – Senegalese star to swap south-coast for North London? – Click the arrow to see other potential targets – Reports suggest Wenger is a big fan of the 22-year-old, who has impressed in his debut season in the Premier League. The Saints would be reluctant to let the Senegalese leave, especially after he only joined the south-coast club last September from Red Bull Salzburg, but the lure of the Emirates could prove too much if a move was to materialise. 5 2. Raheem Sterling – England star to swap Anfield for Emirates? – Click the arrow to see other potential targets – Former Gunners academy boss Liam Brady revealed last summer that he decided against signing Sterling as a youngster. The England international, who starred at the World Cup, was expected to join the Gunners in 2010 before Liverpool made their move. Sterling has since excelled for both club and country but talks over a new deal – his current contract runs until 2017 – have stalled at Anfield and the Gunners could opt for a sensational swoop. The Reds would be very reluctant to see the 20-year-old leave but Arsenal could potentially use Walcott, who is thought to be on Brendan Rodgers’ radar, as bait in any transfer. 5 5 5 Arsenal and England forward Theo Walcott took to Twitter this week to set the record straight over reports of a falling out with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, which he vehemently denies.However, that hasn’t stopped speculation surrounding the 26-year-old’s future at the Emirates and there is a real possibility that the former Southampton man will not extend his contract beyond it’s current duration to the summer of 2016.If Arsenal and Walcott fail to agree a new deal – with the Englishman thought to want in excess of £100,000-a-week and more playing minutes – then the Gunners could opt to sell the forward this summer to ensure he doesn’t leave on for free 12 months later.Should that happen, a replacement will needed. Who will that be? talkSPORT take a look…Click the arrow on the right to see the players who could replace Theo Walcott if he was to leave the Emirates and let us know your thoughts by leaving a comment below… 5 3. Miralem Pjanic – From Roma with love? – Click the arrow to see other potential targets – The Bosnia and Herzegovina international was close to joining Wenger’s side from Lyon for £9.5m on transfer deadline day in 2011, the same day Mikel Arteta and Per Mertesacker signed for the Gunners. Pjanic is one of Roma’s leading players but reports suggest he his ready to quit the Serie A club. Liverpool are among a host of sides keen on the midfielder, but if the Reds fail to qualify for the Champions League, Wenger could use the carrot of Europe’s elite club competition if the Gunners finish in the top four. 1. Marco Reus – German ace to make move to the Premier League? – Reus has emerged as the leading contender to replace Walcott at the Emirates. The Borussia Dortmund player has long been on the radar of Europe’s top clubs and with his club languishing in the wrong half of the Bundesliga table this season and likely to miss out on European qualification for the following campaign, the Germany international could be convinced now is the time to move. Reus only recently penned an extension to 2019 at the Westfalenstadion, removing his €20m release clause, and that could prove a sticking point in any move. 5. Karim Bellarabi – Leverkusen sensation to move the Premier League? – Click the arrow to see other potential targets – The Germany international has been one of the stars of the Bundesliga season, and Manchester United have been linked to the forward. Bellarabi is an out-and-out winger, direct in his running and with an eye for goal. The 24-year-old has scored 10 goals in the Bundesliga this season. last_img
