Arsenal Plan £100 Million Raid On Three Transfer Targets
By Mike Parrott
Arsenal are looking to make three transfers worth around £100 million to replenish their squad. Arsenal only finished eighth in the Premier League albeit winning the FA Cup.
Arsenal are looking to bounce back after a terrible season including their first sacking of a manager in over 20 years. The Gunners finished outside of the top six in the Premier League for the first time in 25 years last season in a disappointing campaign for the north London club.
Even though manager Mikel Arteta was able to win his first piece of silverware, the FA Cup, in his early managerial career, Arsenal desperately need new players to have any chance of even making the top six in the Premier League next season.
With Chelsea's Willian looking to be moving to Arsenal for a free transfer any time now, Arsenal have chosen three other targets to add to their ranks.
Atletico Madrid's Thomas Partey, Dani Ceballos, and Lille's Gabriel Magalhaes are the three mentioned names.

Partey has been a long-term target for the club as they aim to add a combative midfielder to their ranks. The Spanish giants are holding out for his £45 million release clause and are refusing to lower their demands.
Arsenal face competition from Napoli and Manchester United for the 22-year-old Brazilian defender with Gabriel supposedly valuing game time over Champions League football.
Meanwhile, the Gunners are also keen on extending Ceballos' loan from Real Madrid for another season after an impressive end to the campaign. However, Real Madrid want to sell the Spaniard on a permanent deal and are asking for £30 million for his services.
