With the transfer window in full swing and everything pretty quiet on the Arsenal front, we asked our followers who the Gunners should sign if we could only bring in one more player this summer.
Of course, we had the odd unimaginative suggestion like Lionel Messi. One or two got a little more adventurous with Antoine Griezmann. One person said Emmanuel Frimpong, which was certainly thinking outside the box.
However, most of you decided to stick to something realistic with the majority revealing that you want us to sign Thomas Lemar, or Virgil van Dijk, or tie Alexis Sanchez down to a new deal.
All of which are actually not too crazy.

lemar, since he could play on central or wide

Monaco winger, Lemar, has been heavily linked with Arsenal this summer, with the Gunners reportedly having returned with a £45m bid after having their previous two offers rebuffed.
According to the Sun, a ‘breakthrough’ has been made and negotiations are progressing well but… it is the Sun.
The Ligue 1 side claim that they’re not selling to 21-year-old this summer.
Virgil van Dijk. This team already has goals in it. Kos will play no more than 20 league games. Glaring weakness in squad.

Van Dijk 100%

Meanwhile, Arsenal have been linked with Van Dijk again recently after the centre-back was rumoured to be joining Liverpool. Most reports still claim he’s heading to Merseyside.

Actually change my mind, it's SANCHEZ

Alexis is an odd one.
Most Gooners want him to stay but they want him to want to stay. We don’t want players disrupting the dressing room, throwing their toys out the pram and attempting to force a move to a rival.
Therefore, if Arsenal could convince him to sign a new deal and therefore prove that he wants to stay, Gooners, at least according to Twitter, would be very happy.
Or, you know:
