Arsenal are looking to secure as many as three new signings before the transfer window closes according to the Daily Star.

Top of their wish-list continues to be Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira, despite Bernabeu boss Carlo Ancelotti insisting the German is going nowhere, with the Gunners ready to make a £12m offer for the 27 year old World Cup winner.

Khedira was left out of Real Madrid’s UEFA Super Cup and Spanish Super Cup starting side and was on the bench for the Spanish giants La Liga opener against Cordoba.

The French Under 21 international is a player with a great deal of potential but seemingly his career lies away from the Parc des Princes having struggled to force his way into Laurent Blanc’s side, and the Ligue 1 side have reduced his valuation a great deal so as to secure a quick sale this summer.

Arsenal are also looking to bring in Belgian international Toby Alderweireld who is perhaps seen as a replacement for Thomas Vermaelen, who left for Barcelona earlier this summer.

The former Ajax man is available for as little as £6m and could well be sold by Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone given his fairly limited role at the Vicente Calderon.

The 25 year old started just 12 La Liga fixtures last term and could offer Arsenal strength in depth at the back, not just in a central defensive role but also at right-back.
