Arsene Wenger has set his sights on three more Arsenal signings before the transfer window closes, and will rival Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur to bring the £40 million rated trio to the Emirates Stadium.
The Daily Star on Sunday reports how the Gunners boss is eyeing Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira, Atletico Madrid defender Toby Alderweireld and Paris Saint-Germain star Adrien Rabiot.
Wenger is a long-term admirer of World Cup winner Khedira who, according to the Daily Mirror is free to leave the Santiago Bernabeu for as little as £12 million.
The Germany international has less than 12 months remaining on his Real Madrid contract, and has attracted additional interest from Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho.
However, it's understood that the Emirates Stadium would be Khedira's preferred destination, where he'd link up with international team-mates Mesut Ozil, Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski.
Belgium international Alderweireld is also reportedly on Arsenal's radar having been deemed surplus to requirements by Diego Simeone at the Vicente Calderon.
The 25-year-old, who has also been linked with a move to White Hart Lane as Mauricio Pochettino looks to strengthen his Spurs squad, is said to be available for as little as £6 million, and could act as a direct replacement for Thomas Vermaelen.
Rabiot would be by far the most expensive of the three potential signings, with PSG demanding around £24 million from anyone trying to entice the Frenchman from Parc des Princes.
The teenage midfielder has also been courted by the Blues, but given Mourinho's extensive list of midfield options it's unlikely he'd spend that amount of money on a player not even guaranteed a place in the first-team at Stamford Bridge.
