Arsene Wenger will reinvest some of the cash generated from the sale of Cesc Fabregas in to the signings of Lille pair Eden Hazard and Moussa Sow, according to caughtoffside.
The Gunners boss is planning a busy 13 days prior the close of the transfer window and he has declared that he is not afraid to splash the cash, claiming: “I will pay 30 (million) I will even pay 40 if I find the right players.”
Wenger has already signed Gervinho from Lille and will look to raid the club again with a £34m double bid for midfielder Hazard and striker Sow.
The French tactician is known to be huge admirer of £20 million-rated Belgian starlet Hazard but has not firmed up that interest with a bid, but Wenger is plotting to bring in the Lille man to help replace the loss of Fabregas to Barcelona and potential departure of attacking midfielder Samir Nasri.
The 20-year-old attacking-midfielder has been a regular at the Stade Metropole for three seasons and helped the club secure their first domestic title in over 50 years last term but is now believe to be contemplating a move having seen team-mates Yohan Cabaye and Gervinho leave the club for the Premier League.
While Sow has already issued a ‘come and get me’ plea to the North London club by saying that if he were to leave the Ligue 1 champions then he would favour a move to the Emirates Stadium.
The 25-year-old Senegalese international was the top scorer in Ligue 1 last term, netting 25 goals in his debut season at Lille.
Wenger has earmarked the £14 million-rated Sow to replace Nicklas Bendtner, who is likely to leave the North London club this summer and has been linked with Stoke and Paris St Germain.
It has been a frustrating summer for Arsenal fans, with teenagers Carl Jenkinson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and the aforementioned Gervinho the only signings so far as the club face a possible seventh successive season without silverware.
