North London club on the verge of landing three exciting new recruits.
Arsenal will complete the triple capture of Bayern Munich’s Luiz Gustavo, Liverpool front man Luis Suarez and Swansea City defender Ashley Williams by the end of next week.
The north London club have so far been busy trying to secure a number of marquee signings during the summer transfer window ahead of the new Premier League season, which gets under way next weekend.
However, as yet Gunners head coach Arsene Wenger has been stymied in all his various attempts to sign a big-name player, despite the fact that chief executive Ivan Gazidis confirmed earlier this summer that the Frenchman had a whopping £70 million transfer war chest at his disposal.
But now the club’s long wait to land a new recruit this summer is set to come to end with the purchase of three exciting internationals, who all should be Arsenal players by the time they take on Aston Villa at the Emirates next Saturday.
The first of those new arrivals will be Bayern’s hugely rated Brazil international Gustavo, who Wenger has been keeping close tabs on all summer long after the 26-year-old shone for the Bundesliga champions on their run to winning last season’s Uefa Champions League at Wembley.
The defensive midfield player has a current contract at the Allianz Arena that now only runs until June 2015 and as such is set to join the Gunners for a cut-price £14m, much to Wenger’s relief as the manager has been targeting a new holding midfield player ever since Alex Song left the club to join FC Barcelona last summer.
