Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is closing in on a number of big deals that he hopes to have completed within a matter of days as he sets about preparing his squad for pre-season activity.
CaughtOffside understands that the north London side have deals in place to sign a quartet of talents with medicals penciled in and personal terms all but agreed and a combined fee of £67m being invested by the Emirates Stadium outfit.

Seemingly first to arrive will be Barcelona attacker Alexis Sanchez with the Chilean said to have already agreed personal terms on a five year contract that will see the 25 year old net £150k a week, making him the club’s second highest earner behind German international Mesut Ozil.
Arsenal have met Barcelona’s £32m asking price and Sanchez has indicated that he wants to join the Premier League side over reported interest from Juventus.
Nou Camp boss Luis Enrique is keen to complete the sale in a speedy fashion so he can use the money from the sale to help part-fund a massive bid for disgraced Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.
Sanchez had his most successful club season to date last term, the former Udinese man netting 19 goals in La Liga alone before further impressing Wenger, who has been in Brazil working as a pundit for French TV throughout the World Cup finals.
It appears that bringing in fresh attacking talent was uppermost in Wenger’s summer plans and his Arsenal strike-force may well look decidedly different come the start of the 2014/15 campaign with Dane Nicklas Bendtner having been released and German Lukas Podolski set for an exit.
Youngster Yaya Sanogo will be loaned out to a Premier League side to garner some much needed experience whilst Wenger is ready to usher Costa Rican Joel Campbell into his first team squad.
