Emirates Stadium side ready to make big money offers for top notch pair.
Arsenal are ready to end their current wage ceiling structure in their pursuit to land two top young starlets according to the Telegraph.
Arsene Wenger will apparently be handed a huge transfer warchest in the summer and in a further attempt to attract big name stars the North London club are ready to break their salary ceiling, which currently prevents any member of the playing staff earning over £100k a week, to help the Gunners land their top targets.
Arsenal have set their sights on German international Mario Gotze who Arsene Wenger has been tracking for the best part of 18 months.
The Premier League side may well feel that it’s a tough task to attract the 20 year old playmaker and being able to offer the Borussia Dortmund a big salary could help in the push to do so.
The youngster helped his side to back to back Bundesliga titles but having seen Bayern Munich runaway with the domestic championship this term, as well as knocking out Dortmund in the DFB Pokal, there is perhaps a chance Gotze would consider a Westfalenstadion exit.
Arsenal will also look to beef up their attacking options with a move for another long term target, Montenegro international Stevan Jovetic.
With Juventus also said to be keen on the Fiorentina man it seems Wenger feels that in order to lure the 23 year old he must be able to compete with Europe’s ‘Elite’ in terms of meeting player’s salary expectations.
Given that Vincenzo Montella elected to sign Giuseppe Rossi from Villarreal in January there is perhaps scope for Jovetic to leave the Serie A side if a big enough offer was made.
Wenger may be looking to strengthen an attack that currently relies heavily on Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott and has had to count on plenty of goals from the midfield and wide areas and the Arsenal boss doesn’t want to be dependent on contributions from the likes of Santi Cazorla and Lukas Podolski.
