In the past few days Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admitted that with some 32 players in the current squad, if anything the club will look to trim their roster in order to balance the wage budget.

The French midfielder became the west London side's third signing of the summer last month when he left Monaco to join the Premier League champions.

"I even thought with Matic because I didn't think it was on the cards he was going to leave Chelsea".

However, the 22-year-old is unproven in the Premier League and is still shaking off a minor knee injury as he bids to be fit for the new campaign.

"So if there was a chance he was going to go to Arsenal, that's a player Arsenal needs".

"I wish Arsenal would come in", Wright told Radio Five Live.

Chelsea were beaten by Arsenal on penalties on Sunday in the Community Shield at Wembley. The pre-season hasn't gone fantastically.

Just as hard to predict, though, is which other clubs are going to be the strongest, as we saw last season that there are some very strong contenders and that things can soon change over the course of the season.

Arsenal may be in need of a player like Matic, who signed a three-year deal with Manchester United, but Wenger's reported targets do not seem to be in the mould of the Serbia worldwide.

"I'm not sure how it's going to go once the season starts, has he [Wenger] got something else up his sleeve?" Deals for Thomas Lemar and Jean Michel-Seri have been mooted but are far from completion, with the latter's future dependent on how Nice fare in their Champions League play-off round against Napoli.
