Arsene Wenger is reportedly closing in on two summer striker signings as he looks to strengthen his Arsenal attack.

Having seen Lukas Podolski fail to impress in two matches up front in place of suspended Olivier Giroud the Gunners boss is keen to bring in attacking additions and is in latter stages of sealing two deals to resolve the lack of cutting edge in his Arsenal squad.

Arsenal are thought to have agreed personal terms with long term target Stevan Jovetic and are closing in on a deal to sign the Fiorentina man having begun talks over a fee for the 23 year old Montenegro international.

Jovetic Arsenal

The Serie A side are looking for a fee of around £25m but Arsenal are hoping to bring in the in-form striker for a fee nearer to £20m. Fiorentina boss Vincenzo Montella is ready to allow Jovetic to leave with a replacement, Giuseppe Rossi, already brought in during the January transfer window.

Wenger will also look to complete an early summer transfer window deal to sign 26 year old French international Loic Remy as Arsenal prepare to trigger the QPR striker’s £8m release clause which became active the moment the West London side had officially been relegated from the top tier.

Remy found himself out of the Marseille starting eleven under new boss Elie Baup, despite finishing the previous two campaigns as the club’s top scorer and the former Nice man had appeared to be on his way to join Newcastle United in January before QPR hijacked his St James’ Park move and signed the speedy striker in an £8m deal.

Remy Arsenal

Though Remy was unable to prevent his side from being relegated to the Championship he has impressed with his displays in the English top tier, scoring five goals in ten starts for the Loftus Road side.

Arsene Wenger is ready to listen to offer for Ivory Coast attacker Gervinho, with Turkish sides Galatasaray and Fenerbahce said to be interested. The Arsenal manager will also look to permanently offload loaned out trio Nicklas Bendtner, Marouane Chamakh and Park Chu-Young who have failed to make much of an impact at Juventus, West Ham and Celta Vigo respectively.
