Arsenal are set to begin the re-building of their squad following the sale of Cesc Fabregas by drafting in France midfielder Marvin Martin and Ghana's Andre Ayew, according to Metro.

Fabregas is expected to complete his deal to Barcelona this week, and while Samir Nasri is also expected to leave for Manchester City, manager Arsene Wenger has a job on his hands pluging the gaps in his squad left by the soon to be departed duo.

However, he plans to begin the re-building by bringing in Martin and Ayew, who has an £11.5 million release clause, a fee that given the substantial funds being received for Fabregas and Nasri mean Arsenal are unlikely to shirk away from a deal.


After Wenger revealed he would not be securing a deal for Brazilian Jadson or Spanish winger Juan Mata, his attention has reportedly turned to the pair.

Martin is seen as a player in the mould of Nasri, and could even go on to replace the Arsenal man in the international fold.

Ayew, whose Ghana side reached the World Cup quarter-finals in South Africa last summer, would provide another option in the wide areas for Arsenal.
