THREE World Cup Finalists Arsenal Should Sign

The World Cup semi-finals got off to an unbelievable start as host nation Brazil were humiliated in front of their eager fans, who were already hurt with the news of Neymar missing the rest of the tournament. Within half an hour, Brazil were 5-0 down and on their way out. Germany scored two more before Brazil managed to grab a consolation. The next semi-final was very disappointing as, after a dull 120 minutes, four decent penalties from Argentina sealed the Netherlands’ fate.

This sets up a final between Germany and Argentia, a game where so much talent will be on show and in which both teams will be determined to give it everything one last time. This will be an event no manager in the world will want to miss. With Arsenal set to make more signings, the final could be a great chance to scout some fresh faces. Here are three players that the Gunners should sign:

1. Sami Khedira – Arsenal will be chasing a midfielder this summer and Khedira is a name that has already been linked with a move. The Germany international is not your conventional defensive midfielder though, which could be a problem. However, the Real Madrid star is a superb player and is adaptable, which could be the key in any deal going through. He has star quality and would fit in well as the Gunners have a strong German influence in their side.

2. Sergio Romero – The hero for Argentina in their penalty shoot-out has had a great World Cup in general. The 27-year-old spent last season on loan at Monaco as they began their assault on Ligue 1. Arsenal aren’t looking for a top level goalkeeper as they already have Wojciech Szczesny for that. What they are looking for is someone who can provide competition, but who also won’t mind sitting on the bench. Romero would be perfect for this role.

3. Javier Mascherano – The Gunners have already raided Barcelona once for the services of Alexis Sanchez, but there is no reason why they can’t go back. Luis Enrique wants more than one new face in defence and that could spell the end for Mascherano who has often been deployed at the heart of the back four. With Ivan Rakitic now signed, his place in midfield looks uncertain as well. The great thing about Mascherano is that he can play two positions that Arsenal need covering and he proved last night how gifted he still is.
