Arsene Wenger is ready to show his cards in the transfer market, and will move to sign a quad of stars including Gervinho, Chis Samba, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Phil Jagielka, according to the Daily Mirror.
Wenger signed Carl Jenkinson just over two weeks ago, with the Arsenal manager continuing his search for young fresh talent, but is now reportedly ready to make some big money signings in order to end the Gunners six-season-long trophyless drought.
While Wenger still hopes not to end up with a huge outlay by August 31st, with Gael Clichy, Cesc Fabregas and Nicklas Bendtner all set to leave for big prices, Wenger could be looking at a transfer budget pushing £50 million.
Gervinho has long been a target for Arsenal, and along with Chris Samba, who has made his intentions to leave Blackburn clear, deals could be done for the two stars as soon as the end of the weekend.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who currently plays for Southampton, is another young signing on Wenger’s wishlist, and the Arsenal manager will be moving for the 17-year-old at the beginning of July.
And lastly, Phil Jagielka has been connected to moves with numerous clubs, but the England international, who has been rated at £15 million, is favoured to make the move to Arsenal.
A group of new signings for the Gunners will no doubt appease the fans, as Arsenal look to challenge for domestic and European honours next season.
