Arsenal to spend £70m on Real Madrid trio

Arsene Wenger is prepared to spend his entire £70million transfer budget of Real Madrid trio Angel di maria, Karim Benzema and Mesut Özil.

According to the Daily Mail, the Arsenal manager is desperate for reinforcements after being plunged into an early season injury crisis and has his eye on the Santiago Bernabeu stars.

The report claims Gunners officials have contacted their counterparts at Real Madrid over the trio and have received encouragement over a possible deal being done, as president Florentino Perez needs to recoup some of the £86million he is preparing to spend on Gareth Bale.

A significant proportion of Arsenal fans fear Wenger will not spend at all this summer and recent reports suggest board members at Emirates Stadium share this fear.

Former Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini was unveiled as the club's second signing of the summer, joining on a free transfer after his AC Milan contract expired this summer. The other signing made was also a Frenchman and also a free transfer, France U20 striker Yaya Sanogo, but he is not the calibre of signing Gunners fans were looking for.

With the transfer window closing next Monday, Arsenal are running out of time to add any new faces and a failure to land anyone could leave the squad dangerously stretched after Lukas Podolski was ruled out for three months with a hamstring tear, joining Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mikel Arteta, Thomas Vermaelen and, of course, About Diaby, on the list of long-term absentees.
