Emirates Stadium side set to welcome in brand-new attacking duo.
Arsenal appear to be well on the way to bringing in a pair of top strikers with the north London club apparently having agreed a price with both QPR and AC Milan in pursuit of Loic Remy and Mario Balotelli respectively.
CaughtOffside understands that having met the two forward’s valuations the north London club will now enter into negotiations with the pair as Arsene Wenger steps-up his push for a fresh Gunners strike-force.

Serie A side AC Milan are ready to cash-in on 23 year old Balotelli with new San Siro boss Filippo Inzaghi open to offers for the Italian international.
Though considered something of a ‘troubled’ figure there is no denying Balotelli’s ability to find the back of the net, indeed the former AC Milan has netted a healthy total of 30 goals in 54 appearances for a side who has struggled over the past two seasons.
The Italian giants want £29m for Balotelli and it’s a fee Arsenal are ready to fork out, with the club’s money men seeing the marksman as a bankable asset with a sell on value and marketing potential.
Wenger will also look to bring in French international Loic Remy, who has long been an Arsenal target, following his impressive loan spell at Newcastle United last season during which the 27 year old scored 14 goals from 24 Magpies starts.
QPR want £13m for the former Marseille man, which is again a fee Arsenal have intimated they will pay, paving the way for the Gunners to open talks with the speedy striker.
In order to make room for such additions Wenger is prepared to sell experienced German international Lukas Podolski, who struggled for both form and fitness in his second season at the Emirates Stadium, leading to a less prominent role in Joachim Low’s World Cup set-up.
If Wenger does manage to lure the pair of quality strikers this summer then he will look to send out youngster Yaya Sanogo on loan to a Premier League side.
