Arsenal is a club on the verge of collapse as Arsene Wenger is in desperate need of a boost to his squad. Current summer transfer rumors have captain and star attacker Robin Van Persie almost certain to leave but the Daily Mail is reporting that the Gunners in desperate to hold talks with the player in hopes of signing him to a massive new contract to ensure the focal point of a summer rebuild remains intact.

If Van Persie does sign on for more at the Emirates the Gunner’s have to make an effort to appease his desires for silverware and glory.

What looks like a certain exit from this season’s UEFA Champions League and this weekend’s ousting from the FA Cup leaves them destined to make their trophy drought seven years.

However, the Daily Mirror claims that Arsenal will not sell RVP even if he refuses to sign a new contract which would see them risk losing him on a Bosman free transfer in the summer.

Further transfer rumors for the club include their possible pursuit of Youssef Msakni who has been labeled the Tunisian version of Lionel Messi according to TalkSport.

The 21-year-old is yet another unproven star that Wenger could try to bring in which would more than likely add more fuel to the fire that the youth policy is not what is needed at Arsenal.

The Sun is claiming that Wenger is rumored to have a £50 million transfer kitty that is lying in wait and could finally be used this summer on a host of new signings.

The Arsenal Supporters Trust is believed to be demanding answers from American club owner Stan Kroenke as to why there has not been more investment in the clubs players for the future to ensure a renewed level of success at the Emirates.

As for the five players that are linked for An outlay of £55 million, they have all been listed by TalkSport starting with Montpellier forward Oliver Giroud at £17 million. Belgian side Anderlecht midfielder Lucas Biglia is next at £6.6 million, Youssef Msakni from Esperance for £2.5 million, Ajax captain Jan Vertonghen for £10 million and lastly FC Porto’s Uruguyan wing back Alvaro Pereira.

This major outlay could be just what is needed in order for Wenger to keep hold of Robin Van Persie and help bring the Gunners back into the top four of England’s elite and back into top European contention.
