Emirates Stadium side look to bring in top attacking talents.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has set his sights on Real Madrid duo Angel Di Maria and Mesut Ozil in a move that could cost the North London club £60m according to the Daily Telegraph.
The Gunners are yet to spend a single penny in the transfer window this summer, a fact that has angered by of the club’s supporters, so a move of this magnitude will be welcomed by Arsenal fans.
The Bernabeu side could well be considered possible player sales if they do finally win the race to sign Gareth Bale, a move that will not only cost a hefty sum but could also leave some top quality players wondering about their places in Carlo Ancelotti’s first team set-up.
German international Ozil didn’t take kindly to being subbed against Granada last night, storming off straight down the tunnel and this could perhaps indicate his overall mood regarding his future at the Spanish giants.
Argentine winger Angel Di Maria is also a player who’s position could certainly be under threat if winger Bale is purchased, with one wondering just how Real Madrid look to accommodate both the Welsh international and Cristiano Ronaldo.
A successful move to bring in the Real Madrid pair would be quite a statement of intent from Arsenal as they look to end an eight year silverware drought and now that Champions League football has all but been secured, following a 3-0 win away at Fenerbahce last week, a move for this level of signing is perhaps more likely.
Arsenal would however perhaps benefit more from the purchase of further striking options to help support Olivier Giroud and Lukas Podolski as they have more than enough creativity in their side at present.
