Emirates Stadium side target Old Trafford and Goodison Park duo.

Check in to Arsenal vs Newcastle United

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been promised significant funds to invest in improving his Gunners squad and has earmarked moves for two Premier League attackers to help boost his option in the final third.

CaughtOffside understands that Wenger is ready to make an offer for unhappy Man United forward Danny Welbeck who he believes can provide some much needed support to the Arsenal attack.

Their has been growing speculation over the 24 year old’s future at Old Trafford with the England man concerned about his lack of first team action.

This season has proven Welbeck’s most prolific to date but this hasn’t resulted in a significant upturn in first team starts, indeed the locally born striker has started just 13 of Man United’s 35 Premier League fixtures though has still managed to score nine times.

Arsene Wenger is keen to bring in fresh striking options this summer and may feel Welbeck has the potential to make a real impact at the Emirates Stadium.

Olivier Giroud has been overworked for much of the current campaign though in recent weeks Lukas Podolski has started to deliver in terms of an increased goal tally.

Welbeck may be tempted by a fresh challenge as he is currently behind both Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie in the Man United pecking order and a lot could depend on whether his side look to bring in a fresh striking option of their own, which would perhaps make it abundantly clear that he is fighting a losing battle at the club.

Danny Welbeck Manchester United

Arsenal are ready to offer up to £13m for Welbeck though any move may have to wait until Man United have appointed a permanent successor to Moyes.

Wenger is also keeping a close eye on Everton winger Kevin Mirallas and is ready to register his interest in the Belgian international if his Arsenal side pip the Toffees to a spot in the top four.

The 26 year old was an Arsenal target prior to his move from Olympiakos to Goodison Park and is having an excellent campaign.

With Lukas Podolski blowing hot and cold in a wide-attacking role and Theo Walcott struggling with long term injury issues Wenger sees Mirallas as a viable option to pursue this summer.

Should Everton fail to secure a Champions League berth then Wenger will hope that a £15m bid for Mirallas would prove tough for chairman Bill Kenwright to turn down.

Everton paid £6m to bring in Mirallas from the Greek capital back in August 2012 so an offer of more than double that which they forked out could be considered too tempting to ignore, especially if Roberto Martinez manages to keep hold of the likes of Ross Barkley, John Stones and Leighton Baines, who are all repeatedly linked with interest from other Premier League sides.
