Arsenal boss set to receive £100m war-chest

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will be equipped with a £100m war-chest in the summer transfer window after provisionally agreeing to sign a new contract, according to the Daily Star.

The Frenchman's current deal expires in the summer, but the Gunners' chief executive Ivan Gazidis confirmed on Monday that Wenger will remain in charge at the Emirates Stadium for the foreseeable future, with a three-year contract mooted in this morning's newspapers.

Arsenal will be financially boosted by a new £150m deal with kit manufacturer Puma, who also sponsor AS Monaco's unsettled striker Radamel Falcao.

It's believed that Wenger could use a proportion of his £100m summer budget on acquiring the Colombia international's services.

Falcao, who is set to miss the 2014 World Cup finals after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, was purchased by Monaco from Atlético Madrid last summer for a reported £51m fee – and Arsenal would almost certainly need to pay a similar amount in order to bring the prolific South American to north London.
