Arsene Wenger wants to be able to unleash a new frontline trio next season, according to reports.
Arsenal are preparing for a busy summer as Wenger remains keen on strengthening the squad, having identified a number of positions that needs to be reinforced.
Although transfer activity is a bit slow at the moment, Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette are Arsenal’s only arrival so far but Wenger is still keeping tabs on a couple of other targets.
Apparently, the boss is prioritising strengthening the attack in a bid to launch a successful title challenge next term.
According to the The Daily Telegraph via The Metro, Wenger wants a new look attack next season.
The report claims Wenger wants to sign Thomas Lemar, Riyad Mahrez and Alexandre Lacazette as the team’s attacking trio.
While this would get Gooners excited, it does mean the club is preparing for the exit of Alexis Sanchez who is attracting serious interest from Man City.
Thomas Lemar is the name that has been drafted in as a replacement for the Chilean but the French playmaker will be the most difficult of the trio to sign.
While Leicester City are open to the sale of Mahrez, Monaco are grumbling over a move for Lemar.
However, Arsenal are expected to push for the duo, which could cost us around £100m.
Arsenal have already submitted a bid worth £31m for Lemar, while Mahrez is expected to cost north of £40m.
This show of ambition and willingness to spend bid on top targets will definitely please Gooners who have been keen to see Wenger do this all these years. It appears the boss has learned his lessons but at the cost of a Champions League place.
