Arsenal have been linked with Granit Xhaka and Adrien Rabiot, while Barcelona are apparently planning a bid for Aaron Ramsey.
Arsenal are expected to announce the signing of Mohamed Elneny early this week, but the Daily Star Sunday claims the Gunners are willing to spend a combined £52million on two more midfielders, Xhaka and Rabiot.
Xhaka, 23, will cost £37million, it is said, while the mother of Rabiot, 20, who is also his agent, is apparently in London on Sunday to discuss a £15million transfer for her son.
The newspaper does not explain why Arsene Wenger wants to sign three midfielders this month but says he has decided to act having missed out on Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who he was willing to spend £42.2million on.
Perhaps one explanation for Arsenal’s apparent interest in three midfielders this month is that according to the Sunday Express, Barcelona are preparing a £50million summer offer for Aaron Ramsey.
