Juventus and Barcelona competed in this season’s Champions League final and the two European giants possess players that could strengthen us in the future.
Some have been linked with us in the past, while others remain accomplished players we should be keeping an eye on this summer.
Here are five players who we should be keeping an eye on from both squads:
5) Stephan Lichsteiner

- Arteta reveals contract talks for starlet who’s part of Arsenal’s ‘DNA’
The Swiss international had been heavily linked with us in January (via the Express), but those rumours have cooled since the 31-year-old signed a new deal.
However, with the injury problems suffered by Mathieu Debuchy and Calum Chambers lacking experience, Wenger could look to bring Lichsteiner in to cover the centre-back and right-back positions.
