Arsenal are reportedly closing in on another major transfer this summer, according to a leading football agent.

Arsenal and Chelsea transfer target in rumoured swap deal involving Angel Di Maria
The man in question is agent Muzzi Ozcan, who was involved with Slaven Bilic’s appointment at West Ham United and has also worked with Gunners striker Olivier Giroud [via Metro Sport], posted a message on his official Twitter account on Wednesday afternoon to suggest Arsene Wenger is on the verge of another huge transfer.
Arsenal will be making the transfer of the season ! The deal isn’t to far from being complete ! Will update in the coming days ????

Following the arrival of Petr Cech from rivals Chelsea earlier in the month, many Gunners supporters will be speculating as to who a deal is in place for if this rumour is indeed correct.
Manchester United winger Angel Di Maria has emerged as a surprise transfer target for the North London outfit [via Telegraph Sport] and could well be the mystery player.
Meanwhile Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has also been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium [via Metro Sport] and as Wenger is a known admirer of his French compatriot, it wouldn’t be too much of a surprise if the 27-year-old is the big signing.
However, there has to be a note of caution with Ozcan as he claimed on July 6 that United striker Robin van Persie would become a Fenerbahce player but as of yet that transfer has not happened.
