The news all Arsenal fans have been waiting for has finally come as it seems Arsene Wenger could be about to spend large amounts of money.
Reports suggest Arsenal are readying moves for Newcastle’s Yohan Cabaye, Swansea’s Ashley Williams, Manchester City’s Micah Richards and former Manchester United prodigy Paul Pobga.
Wenger has finally been convinced to spend big in this summer’s window after Arsenal’s opening day 3-1 defeat at the hands of last year’s relegation candidates Aston Villa.
Arsenal’s current squad has been majorly depleted due to injuries to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mikel Arteta and Bacary Sagna as well as doubts about Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey.
Newcastle rejected the £10million offer for French playmaker Cabaye with the Tyneside club expecting at least double that for Cabaye to appear in an Arsenal shirt.
Ashley Williams and Micah Richards could be set to sign for the Gunners to add stability to an already strong back four.
Richards’ seems unable to break into the City squad at the moment with club captain Vincent Kompany, Matija Nastasic and Joleon Lescott offering adequate options at the centre of the defence.
The addition of Paul Pogba to the list of potential targets is likely to infuriate old rivals Manchester United who believed Pogba was the answer to their midfield mishaps before the young Frenchman allowed his Old Trafford contract to run down before joining Italian giants Juventus.
Although none of the immediate targets are the high- profile players being talked about before pre-season these players will be good business for Arsenal especially if they could acquire Luis Suarez who still feels his ability should be showcased in Europe.
